Admissions & Aid
Tuition and fees vary according to the student’s classification as a continuing student, new student, matriculated student, or nondegree student, and whether the student is a resident of New York State (matriculated students are those recognized by the college as working toward a degree).
Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice pursuant to City University of New York (CUNY) Board of Trustees resolution.
*Winter intersession tuition is charged on a per-credit basis and is billed as a separate tuition charge from the spring term tuition charges. However, both winter and spring charges appear under the spring account on CUNYfirst.
*Summer session tuition is charged on a per-credit basis even if registered for 12 or more credits among both sessions.
Student fees are charged for each term and summer session in which a student enrolls.

Developmental courses carry excess contact hours of a remedial nature that may be counted as equated credits in addition to degree credits. Equated credits are used to determine tuition and financial aid enrollment status. Developmental courses: ESL 1004, 1005, 1006, 1007, 1008, and 1009.
Students who withdraw from classes during the semester are liable for all or part of the original tuition charge, accelerated student charge, plus the Student Activity, CUNY Consolidated Services, and Technology fees. Refer to the semester’s tuition liability schedule for liability amount.
Some courses entail a fee to cover the costs of special materials, film rental charges, transportation, field trip expenses, or other non-instructional costs. Material fees are subject to change and are nonrefundable.
Undergraduate students who take graduate courses for graduate credit pay applicable resident or nonresident tuition rates set for graduate students and are subject to the maximum tuition rate set for undergraduate students. Graduate Division tuition rates are listed in the Schedule of Classes and the Graduate Bulletin.
Undergraduate students who take graduate courses for undergraduate credit pay applicable tuition rates set for undergraduate students.
Students in combined programs will pay undergraduate tuition rates up to the number of credits required to earn a baccalaureate degree in the particular program (normally 120 to 128 credits). Any credits taken after that number toward the combined degree are to be paid at the graduate level.
Full-time employees of the City University of New York may be granted a waiver of tuition for undergraduate credit-bearing courses. CUNY staff waivers cannot be applied to the winter intersession. Information and applications may be obtained in the Personnel Office, 1219 Boylan Hall.
The fee for auditing a day, evening, or weekend course is the same as if the course were being taken for credit. The fee for senior citizens (New York State residents age 60 and older) is $65 plus the $15 CUNY Consolidated Services Fee per term. Senior citizens who take courses for undergraduate credit must pay the applicable tuition and fee rates set for undergraduate students.

Matriculated students who are enrolled for 12 or more credits or the equivalent per term are classified as full-time students.
Students who are enrolled for fewer than 12 credits or the equivalent per term are classified as part-time students.
All courses taken by part-time students are billed on a per-credit basis except compensatory, developmental, and remedial courses, which are billed on a contact-hour basis. The Schedule of Classes published each term lists these courses.
The tuition charged part-time students on a per-credit basis in any one term may not exceed the term rate for full-time students.
