Important Payment Notes

Financial Aid

Students receiving Financial Aid are advised that New York State education regulations require that an eligible full time student must be enrolled for 12 credits and have a matriculated status. Accordingly, a student must be registered for courses that the college catalog states are contributing toward fulfilling the curriculum requirements for a degree. Electives are acceptable when taken in accordance with published degree requirements. Contact the Office of Financial Aid (718-631 6367) for additional information and if you are thinking to leave financial aid, make sure to see the impact of withdrawal on financial aid.

If you do not make full payment on your tuition and fees and other college bills and your account is sent to a collection agency, you will be responsible for all collection costs, including agency fees, attorney fees and court costs, in addition to whatever amounts you owe the college.

In addition, non-payment or a default judgment against your account may be reported to a credit bureau and reflected in your credit report.
