Payment is accepted in-person as cash, check, and money order. Credit card (Mastercard, American Express, Visa, and Discover) payments are only accepted via eSIMS for tuition payment only. There is also a 2.65% convenience fee charged for using credit cards.

All tuition and fees are determined by the City University of New York (CUNY) Board of Trustees and are subject to change without notice. In the event of an increase in the tuition and fee prices, payments already made will be treated as a partial payment. Notification will be given to students concerning the amount owed and the deadline date to pay.

Tuition bills are no longer mailed Please check eSIMS for your tuition balance and print your course schedule.
