Changes to Payment Options for Tuition, Fees, and Housing Charges

Please be advised that effective March 13, 2016, QC/CUNY revised the procedures for utilizing a credit or debit card for tuition, fees, and housing payments.

•    You will no longer be able to use a credit or debit card to make payments directly to QC for Spring 2016 tuition/housing charges or for past due balances. As of this date, only cash, check, or money orders will be accepted for payment at the Bursar’s Office, Jefferson Hall, Room 200.

•    For future semesters/sessions, all credit and debit card transactions will be processed via the CUNY Payment Plan, which can be accessed through CUNYfirst Self Service. The payment plan provides you and your family the option of paying tuition, fees, and housing charges over a period of up to six months. This flexibility enables you to reduce the burden of paying all tuition, fees and housing charges prior to the start of the academic term. This payment plan is an interest-free benefit to you and your family.
        The enrollment fee for the payment plan is $95 per semester/session. If you opt for direct withdrawals from a bank account, a discount will be provided which will lower the enrollment fee to $40 per semester/session.
•    The eCheck payment option through CUNYfirst Self Service continues to be an alternative payment option that is cost effective since it does not require an enrollment fee.

Visit your online self-service center to view your account. It is strongly suggested that you pay your bill online, as we are expecting long lines at the Bursar's Office. If paying by check, you can also take advantage of our drop-off boxes located within the front doors of Jefferson Hall and outside the Bursar’s Office in JH200. Payment by electronic fund transfer (e-check) is available with no charge to the student.

If you are a financial aid student, you are required to pay the difference between the anticipated aid appearing on your account and your tuition and fee bill. If the anticipated aid appearing on your account covers your entire bill, no payment is due. If you choose not to attend classes, YOU must drop your courses before the first day of class to avoid any liability.

The Bursar's Office has gone paperless!
Tuition bills are no longer mailed to students. An email will be sent to your QC account informing you of the due date of your bill, based on when you registered. This notice will direct you to CUNYfirst to view your bill.
If you do not have a Queens College email account, go to CAMS and register for one immediately.
