Maintenance of Matriculation Fee

A $225 fee per semester must be paid by all matriculated New York State resident graduate students who wish to maintain their academic standing during terms when they are not registered for course or research credits. The fee for non-residents is $370. Students paying this fee need not pay the Activity Fee. Students who fail to pay the Maintenance of Matriculation fee will be deemed to have withdrawn from the graduate program and must reapply if they wish to be readmitted.

Excess Hours

Excess hours are contact hours (class hours) in excess of credit hours. Graduate students taking classes that have more contact hours than credit hours pay an excess contact hour charge. For example, if a 3-credit class meets 5 hours a week, a NY State resident student pays $65 per excess contact hour ($130 for 2 extra hours) and a non-NY State resident pays $85 per excess contact hour ($170 for 2 extra hours).

There may be other costs and fees associated with academic work, such as textbooks and studio or lab materials. Notice of additional fees will appear in the course listing in each semester's Schedule of Classes.

Tuition Refunds

When courses are withdrawn by the College, a full refund of appropriate tuition and fees will be made. In other cases, tuition refunds will be made or liability reduced only in accordance with Board of Trustees regulations. Further information can be obtained from the Office of the Registrar. On approved applications, proportionate refunds of tuition will be made in accordance with the schedule below. The date on which the application is filed, not the last date of attendance, is considered the official date of the student's withdrawal and serves as the basis for computing any refund.

Withdrawal before first day of classes (as published in the academic calendar)

100%

Withdrawal before completion of the first full scheduled week of classes

75%

Withdrawal before completion of the second full scheduled week of classes

50%

Withdrawal before completion of third full scheduled week of classes

25%

Withdrawal beyond third week

0%

Consolidated and activity fees are not refundable.

Payment of Collection Costs

Students who do not make full payment of their tuition, fees and other college bills and whose account is sent to a collection agency will be responsible for all collection costs, including agency fees, attorney fees and court costs, in addition to whatever amounts are owed to the college. In addition, non-payment or a default judgment against a student's account may be reported to a credit bureau and be reflected in their credit report.

New York State Residency Requirements

Students are assigned residency status when admitted to the College. Since residency determines tuition rates, students should know their classifications. If there is a question of status it is the responsibility of the student to prove residency. An "Application for Proof of Bona Fide Residency" is available at the Office of the Registrar. New students must apply through the Office of Admissions.

The Financial Aid Office administers federal and state funds, as well as those provided by special programs and the College itself. Federal funds may be disbursed only to those who maintain their academic standing and are not in default of a student loan or owe a refund on a federal grant. For the most recent information on application filing procedures, deadline dates, and eligibility criteria for the various programs, students are urged to contact the Financial Aid Office.
