Tuition Payment Plans

Tuition Payment Plans

Reasons to Sign up Early

  • Your class seat is saved
  • The earlier you enroll, the lower your monthly payments since the total amount financed will be divided over more scheduled payments

Payment Plan Budget Worksheet

Establish your payment plan based upon your anticipated tuition & fee costs and your anticipated financial aid (grants, scholarships, federal and state aid, etc.)

Choose Your Payment Method

  • Automatic bank payment (ACH) or eCheck
  • Credit or Debit Card (a 2.65% convenience fee will be assessed on the amount charged at time of payment)

Cost to Participate

  • $40 enrollment fee per semester*
  • $30 returned payment Fee if a payment is returned, per occurrence of returned payment**

Notes: Any change in your obligation due to CUNY will change the total payment plan balance and remaining monthly payment amounts.

*If the Enrollment Fee is returned for any reason, the agreement will be terminated.

** All Credit/Debit Card payments that are returned will be subject to the Return Payment Fee. Only eCheck/ACH payments returned due to NSF (insufficient funds) will be subject to a returned payment fee.

How to Enroll
