Tuition Refund Policy

Before proceeding with the refund process, please make sure to read and understand the following information:

  • Once you register, you are liable for all tuition and fees shown on your bill.

  • If you do not pay your bill or do not go to class – you are still financially liable for all charges.

  • To completely cancel your registration, you must drop all classes before the start of the semester. If you withdraw from classes once the semester begins, you are subject to the refund/liability schedules listed below.

Tuition will be refunded 100 percent for those courses which, at any time, are cancelled by the College.

During the first three weeks of the term, students who officially withdraw through CUNYfirst from one or more classes are entitled to a partial cancellation of tuition charges only. Mandatory fees cannot be cancelled after the start of the term. The day of withdrawal as recorded on CUNYFirst determines the percentage of the cancellation of tuition charges. Failure to attend class, or merely giving notice to the instructor or adviser, or stopping payment on a check is not considered an official withdrawal.

Students who pay their tuition bill in full and subsequently withdraw will have their refund calculated according to the Tuition Refund Schedule for the term in which the drop/withdrawal pertains.

  • Refund for payments made by mail or in person will be sent via U.S. Postal Service to the student's address on record, regardless of who paid the bill.

  • Credit card refunds for payments made through NELNET payment plan will be refunded back to the credit/debit card that was used to pay the tuition.

  • For e-check payments or savings withdrawals, the refund will be deposited directly into the checking or savings account that was used to pay the tuition.

Students who made a partial payment on their bill will have their tuition liability calculated according to the Tuition Refund Schedule. A reduction in tuition charges may not necessarily result in a refund and, in some instances, a tuition balance may still be due. Student activities fees and consolidated services fees are not refundable.

Note: Withdrawing from one or more classes may impact the amount of Title IV Aid that you are entitled to. For additional information, visit impact of withdrawal on Title IV Aid.
