Purpose of this Manual

This Tuition and Fee Manual (“Manual” or “TFM”) was created to combine tuition and fee policies and procedures in one document to provide assistance to CUNY staff. Although not designed to be the definitive training document, the Manual will provide support to new and experienced staff.

Sections in the Manual are identified below. Clicking a topic will provide direct access to that section.

Sections begin with a group of policy statements, followed by pertinent definitions, and tables or charts. All information in the Manual will be periodically updated.

Suggestions for clarification or correction to the Manual are encouraged and should be submitted to:

Office of the University Treasurer
City University of New York
