Billing Adjustments

Change of New York State Residency Status
Find out what you need and collect your documentation before you are eligible to file. If your official residency has changed, or you feel that your residency status has been evaluated incorrectly, contact the
appropriate admissions office (Graduate or Undergraduate) for forms and information. The initial deadline for filing your request for review, with all required documentation, is the day before the first day of classes for the semester; we strongly recommend that you meet this early deadline. The final deadline is the last day of classes for the semester.

Change of Registration/Program Adjustment
If your bill is due, but you changed your program and want to pay only the adjusted bill before the due date, you may do so via your account on CUNYfirst.

Financial Aid
File early. If aid you expected is not on the bill, resolve any problems before the bill due date. Some aid programs require that you declare your major by a certain point in your academic career in order to continue to receive aid. Be sure to complete the Declaration of Major form, get departmental signature(s), and submit it to the Registrar's Office as soon as possible, but no later than the end of the first three weeks of the semester for which you need it to be effective.

For the purpose of cancellation only, anticipated aid, when visible on your account, constitutes a payment and will hold your registration.

If you become ineligible early for all aid originally posted to your bill and made no payment yourself, your registration may be canceled for nonpayment. If you become ineligible after nonpayment cancellations, you may still be registered and responsible for any balance due. If you are not going to attend class, you must drop the courses in accordance with the deadlines for that semester.

Billing Problems

Check your account carefully. If it is not correct, resolve any problem(s) before the bill is due.

Note: If the problem is not resolved before your bill's due date, you will have to make payment to avoid possible cancellation of your registration.

Tuition/Registration Appeal

Tuition/Registration appeals are reviewed by the Registration Review Committee. The committee examines all documentation presented by a student seeking a relief from their registration/tuition/fee debt for extenuating circumstances. Students must file a Registration Review Appeal Form (please use a browser other than Firefox). Processing directions are on the first page of the appeal form.

Appeals are to be submitted to the Welcome Center in Jefferson Hall.
