- All visiting students are billed at the non-degree tuition rate.

- 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. Senior citizens are not permitted to register tuition free for graduate level courses.

​- Contact hours (not credits) of remedial, compensatory and developmental courses are considered for determination of tuition. For example, a course with 2 credits and 5 hours may be billed tuition for 5 hours X the respective per-credit tuition rate. Please check with the department in which the course is being offered to determine which courses are charged by contact hours assigned to the course. 

- Students who drop/swap or withdraw from a previously swapped class are liable for a percentage charge based on the liabiity schedule. Multiple Class Changes may result in several tuition liability charges. For additional information on these charges, review the FAQ page​.




Once registered, students are responsible for mandatory student fees including the Activity Fee, Consolidated Service Fee, Senate Fee and Technology Fee. These fees are calculated based on the following charts:
