Dropping and Withdrawing from Courses
Tuition charges are based on registration; students are responsible for tuition charges notwithstanding attendance, completion and or grades for registered courses.
It is not guaranteed that classes associated with an unpaid balance are automatically cancelled by Bursar. Students are responsible to drop their courses if they are unable to attend and/or pay for registered courses. Courses drop by students on and after the first official day of the semester will incur tuition liability charges.
Students who withdraw from courses are a 100% liable for all tuition charges related to that course. In addition, withdrawing from courses could affect financial aid awards and eligibility. Students should consult with a financial aid counselor before withdrawing from classes to determine if a financial obligation will incur.
The Office of the Bursar reserves the right to cancel courses for students who do not satisfy their tuition payment by their due date. All Students whose classes are cancelled by Bursar due to non – payment have the opportunity to re-register within 24 business hours; however, it is not guarantee students will be able to re-register for the same courses cancelled as registration is filled on a first-come basis.
Outstanding Balances and Stops
A Bursar stop is place on a student record if payment is not satisfied by the payment due date. A Bursar stop prevents a student from being able to enroll for courses at any CUNY school, obtain or access a transcript, grade report and enrollment verification documents.
Bursar stops will only be lifted once the outstanding balance is paid in full. Students in arrears six months or more will be forwarded to a third party collection agency.
