A. Tuition Charges

Tuition is a charge attributable to instruction at each of CUNY’s institutions. Application of tuition policy is consistent at all colleges throughout the university, but varies within the following categories:

  • Type of Institution (community college, senior college, professional school, etc.)
  • Level of Study (non-degree*, undergraduate (UG), graduate (GR), masters, doctoral, etc.)
  • Program of Study (Architecture, Public Administration, Business, Engineering, etc.)
  • Residence Status (resident, non-resident) ⇒⇒ see “Residency”
  • Enrollment Status (full-time, part-time)

Tuition is consistent throughout CUNY within these categories. Tuition is also outlined in each college catalog or bulletin.

* Non-degree students are non-matriculating students, certificate program students, senior citizen students or other students not seeking to earn academic credit.

B. General Definitions

A full-time undergraduate (UG) student must be enrolled in twelve (12) or more credits/billable equivalent* credits per semester.

A full-time graduate (GR) student generally must be enrolled in twelve (12) or more credits/billable equivalent* credits per semester. Some courses of study allow students full-time status when enrolled in less than 12 credits. In these cases students are billed based upon the number of enrolled credits.

A part-time student is billed at the rate per credit hour appropriate to the student’s residency and institutional attendance. A part-time student shall not pay more than the full-time tuition for the same residency and degree status unless the tuition is assessed: 1) for a summer session, or 2) to an UG non-degree students and non-resident. These students are billed on a per credit basis, with the exception of Law School non-residents who are assessed a full-time tuition rate per semester.

A semester is defined as the regular fall or spring term of study of 15 or more weeks, unless at a 12-6 school (see below).

A session is defined as any period in which courses are given for less than the traditional 15-week period, such as summer or winter sessions, unless at a 12-6 school (see below). Sessions are billed on a per credit basis. Courses that meet for less than the 15-week period must be adjusted proportionately to ensure the requisite number of credit hours for awarding degree credit. There is no flat rate for session students, summer session, or non-degree students.

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).

12-6 Schools
Kingsborough Community College, LaGuardia Community College, and Guttman Community College operate under slightly different schedules with twelve week semesters and six-week sessions. See the “Refunds” section to view differing refund dates for 12-6 schools.

Remedial, Developmental, and Compensatory Offerings
The number of equated credits for a course is determined by each college’s academic governing body and approved by the University’s Board of Trustees. Equated credits generate billable FTEs (full-time equivalent) eligible for financial aid. A “billable equivalent credit” (also known as an equated credit) may be assigned to “Remedial,” “Compensatory,” or “Developmental” courses.

The academic level and calculation of equated credits for tuition and financial aid load of courses containing remedial/ developmental/ compensatory elements are defined as follows:

Regular:
Regular courses are those for which all hours are either UG or GR level with credits applicable towards the degree.

Remedial:
All remedial contact hours are non-credit, below college level and designed to serve the needs of students who have not demonstrated skills proficiency on a CUNY administered assessment test. The placement of students in such courses is made pursuant to the CUNY assessment testing program required of all entering students. Remedial courses are accounted for on a standard one-for-one basis when equating contact hours to credit hours. Equated credits account for tuition and financial aid to enrolled students.

  • For example, a remedial course, which meets 3 hours per week for a 15-week semester, generates zero degree credits, 3 equated credits, and 3 contact hours. In this example the student is assessed tuition for 3 credits (based upon equated credits).

Developmental:
Developmental courses are non-remedial, degree-credit-bearing courses, which include additional developmental hours. Academic credit shall only be given to the extent that college level material is integrated into the developmental course. Excess hours in developmental courses can be counted as equated credits. Equated credits account for tuition and financial aid to enrolled students.

  • For example, a developmental course, which meets 6 hours per week for a 15-week semester, of which 3 hours per week is developmental, generates 3 degree credits, 6 equated credits, and 6 contact hours. In this example the student is assessed tuition for 6 credits (based upon contact hours).

Compensatory:
Compensatory courses are non-remedial, non-developmental degree-credit-bearing courses which have additional compensatory hours attached that may include, but need not be limited to, workshops, seminars, tutorial, and study labs, among other pedagogic approaches. Academic credit shall be given only to the extent that college level material is integrated into the course. A course awarding degree credit may include, as a required element of enrollment in that course, one or more hours of compensatory non-credit work for students who have demonstrated minimal skills proficiency on a CUNY administered assessment test. Excess hours in compensatory courses are not counted as equated credits and are not calculated in tuition and financial aid or academic load.

* Note: In “Regular” credit-bearing courses, the billable equivalent credits are those credits assigned to the course by the college’s academic governing body, and approved by the University’s Board of Trustees. They appear on the University’s “Show Registration” enrollment report.

In “Remedial,” Compensatory,” and “Developmental” courses, billable equivalent credits are the number of equated credits attributable to these courses, regardless of the number of degree credits assigned to these courses.

In each instance, the number of equated credits for each course is determined by each college’s academic governing body, approved by the University’s Board of Trustees, and appears on the University’s “Show Registration” enrollment report.

C. Tuition Policies

Change of Tuition All tuition and fees listed in this manual, colleges’ catalogs or bulletins or in any registration material, or any other official College or University correspondence or publications are subject to change by action of the Board of Trustees at any time.

Tuition Payment Requirement Tuition must be paid or “satisfied” prior to the first day of classes in order for a student to be considered enrolled. Tuition can be “satisfied” with proof of pending receipt of funds from a legitimate third party or other specifically authorized source approved by the University.

Graduate vs. Undergraduate Tuition Tuition assessment is based upon the level of credit received for the courses taken. If a student, whether enrolled as an UG or GR student, receives GR credit, the student pays at their residency GR rate (See the Residency Section of the Manual for more information). Conversely, if the student (regardless of enrollment status) receives UG credit, the student pays their residency UG rate. Residency is always considered in tuition assessment, with the exception of tuition assessed in most instances by the School of Professional Studies. Following are some specific examples of how to determine what tuition rate is to be assessed:

Undergraduate (UG) Students Taking Graduate (GR) Courses

  • UG nonresident students taking GR courses and receiving GR credit will be charged the applicable GR tuition for these courses based upon the number of credits taken.

Graduate (GR) Students Taking Undergraduate (UG) Courses

  • GR students taking UG courses to satisfy prerequisites or other requirements and receive UG credit are to be charged the applicable UG rate, depending upon residency status.
  • If a student is a non-degree GR student taking UG courses, the student will be billed as a non-degree UG student. The tuition rate to be charged depends on whether the student is receiving GR or UG credit for courses.
  • No GR student is required to pay more than their maximum residency GR tuition per semester regardless of the mix of UG (degree or non-degree) or GR courses taken. Thus, a GR student shall pay the appropriate tuition for either GR courses and/or UG courses up to their maximum residency GR tuition per semester.

Dual Program – Combined BA/MA Program

  • Students in combined programs will pay undergraduate (UG) tuition rates up to the number of credits required to earn a baccalaureate degree in that particular program (normally 120 to 128 credits). Any credits taken after that number toward the combined degree are to be paid at the graduate level.
  • Students whose total credit accumulation at registration would exceed the number of credits needed to earn a BA degree should be charged the UG per credit rate up to and including the required credits. The remaining credits should be charged at the graduate (GR) per credit rate.

Students Satisfying Degree Requirements

  • Students who have satisfied their degree requirements, but take additional credits beyond the degree, are charged the non-degree rate per credit unless they have filed for a second degree.
  • Students who have filed for a second degree will be charged tuition based on the UG tuition rate for a degree student.
  • If a student is satisfying degree requirements in a particular semester, he/she will be charged the UG degree rate for all courses taken in that semester.

A change from non-degree to degree status on or after the first day of classes will not take effect until the next semester for tuition assessment purposes, therefore a student is not entitled to a refund for the reclassification on or after the first day of classes.

Doctoral Levels Defined:

  • Doctoral Level I will apply to the first 45 credits fully earned and evaluated through successful completion of the first examination. The first 45 credits may include approved advanced standing transfer credits.
    • Tuition rate 1 = full-time students who are taking 7 or more credits or full-time students
    • Tuition rate 2 = part-time students taking fewer than 7 credits
  • Doctoral Level II will apply beginning the semester after successful completion of Doctoral Level I through the completion of required coursework.
  • Doctoral Level III will apply beginning the semester after the completion of all required course work and advancement to candidacy.
  • All non-degree GR Center students will pay the Level I part-time or full-time tuition rate. Nonresident GR students’ tuition will be on a per credit basis with no full-time tuition rate, with the exception of Law School students who will have a full-time nonresident tuition rate.

CUNY School of Law Law School students are considered full-time if registered for 12 or more credit hours. Other Law School fees are itemized on the Fee Table following this section. GR students who wish to take courses at the Law School on a permit basis will be governed by the billing and collection procedures outlined for GR students in the Permitting Section of the Manual.

School of Professional Studies (SPS) The School of Professional Studies will assess the same tuition rates in effect for undergraduate and graduate programs at CUNY. For degree, certificate programs and courses offered online, SPS will assess the in-state tuition rates in effect for undergraduate and graduate programs at CUNY to all students enrolled in these programs regardless of residency.

All students enrolling in a degree, certificate program or course offered online at SPS will be charged a $75.00 infrastructure fee each term.

(Please see “Permitting Procedures” section for additional information.)

CUNY Baccalaureate for Unique and Interdisciplinary Studies (CUNY BA) is CUNY’s individualized, university-wide degree which allows self-directed, academically strong, highly motivated students to design their own academic courses of study under the guidance of faculty mentors. Each enrolled CUNY BA student is simultaneously matriculated in one of the CUNY colleges (known as the Home College). The program is offered under the auspices of the CUNY Graduate School and University Center; the program administration is housed at The Graduate Center and maintains a coordinator at each CUNY campus. CUNY BA is accredited by the Commission on Higher Education of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and by the Board of Regents of The University of The State of New York.

Tuition and activity fees for all students in CUNY Baccalaureate will be billed by their Home College in accordance with the fee schedule in effect. Students in CUNY Baccalaureate who meet college requirements are eligible to receive (campus-based) financial aid from their Home College.

CUNY BA allows mature and highly motivated students to earn up to 15 college credits for valid learning experiences, which occurred outside of the formal college setting prior to the student’s admission to college, or during at least a one-year hiatus from college matriculation. The process by which the CUNY BA staff counsels students on the preparation of life experience portfolios, reviews and evaluates students’ work, and validates students’ credits is significant and time-consuming. Therefore, all students in CUNY Baccalaureate who apply for life experience credits will be charged an assessment fee in the amount of $50.00 by the Graduate Center upon submission of their portfolio for credit review.

Auditing Courses
Students may audit (attend without credit) courses for which they have an interest to increase their knowledge and proficiency. Students must receive official approval to audit courses from their Home College in accordance with the requirements established by that college. Once permission has been granted, students must register for the audit courses in the same manner as any other courses, and pay the applicable tuition and fees outlined in the Manual.

The tuition refund policy for audited courses is the same as for credit courses and will be applied based upon the applicable regulations contained in the “Refunds & Liability” section of the Manual. Official transcripts will record the grades of “AUD” for courses enrolled on an audit basis.

“Unofficial” auditing is not permitted. Audit status cannot be changed to credit status after the change of program period or late registration whichever is later. Likewise, credit status cannot be changed to audit status after the same period. The grade of “AUD”, which carries no credit, cannot be changed to any other grade.

Audited courses cannot be used to qualify for full-time or part-time status, financial aid or veteran’s benefits. An exception to the payment of tuition and some fees for auditing courses is made for senior citizens. (Refer to “Senior Citizen Fee in Lieu of Tuition ” in the “Special Programs section of the TFM” section of the Manual for complete information.)

Accelerated Study Fee This fee, previously included in the Manual, has been discontinued. Accelerated Study is an Academic Policy and therefore beyond the scope of the Manual.

Additional Notes on Tuition Tables Following: Please refer to the following sections for more information regarding the assessment of tuition and tuition categories: Residency; Waivers; Liability & Refunding; Study Abroad; Permitting.

Also note that the Board of Trustees of The City University of New York reserves the right to change tuition and fees as set forth in this publication, without advance notice.

In some instances, additional fees may be required (over and above tuition) for certain academic areas of study.

E. Tuition Processing Procedures

Background:

Based upon the State Education Law, all tuition (exclusive of continuing education tuition) and some other-than-tuition charges must be deposited with the City University Construction Fund (CUCF).

The administrative unit responsible for tuition and fee collections system-wide is the Office of the Treasurer, which reports to the University Controller. The Office of Budget and Finance develops and propagates policies and procedures, conducts training sessions, and generally supports the collection of tuition and fees, University-wide, as well as administers the distribution of Financial Aid University-wide .

Processing General Tuition:

Tuition (and other-than-tuition) collections should be deposited into the college maintained “tuition (depository) bank account” at least once a day during the registration period. At other times of the year, best practice indicates that deposits should be made daily, but in any case, deposits will be made at least weekly, or once a reasonable and prudent amount, established by the college bursar has been accumulated.

Funds from the college’s “tuition (depository) bank account” should be transferred to the University Controller’s Office, once reconciled. The University Controller’s Office will deposit the tuition and most fee funds with the CUCF. Only funds required for refunds shall be maintained in the depository account. See Fee Tables for specifics regarding the disposition of other fee funds.

There are several colleges where the imposition of Other Fees is handled entirely as an activity of the college (student) association or college auxiliary enterprise board and does not entail the expenditure of tax-levy funds. Under these circumstances, charges collected for such services may be deposited into the respective association or auxiliary account to cover the cost of the related services.

County Chargebacks (Community Colleges):

Students attending CUNY community colleges fall into one of three categories for tuition purposes: 1) students who reside in the City of New York; 2) students who reside outside of the State of New York, and 3) students who reside in the State of New York, but not in the City of New York. For this third category, students may be allowed to pay the New York City resident rate, providing they obtain a Certificate of Residency from their “home” county.

ALL STUDENTS who reside outside of the City must provide a certificate in order to qualify for the resident rate. This includes students who qualify for in-City tuition and fees based on other criteria, e.g. child of a board member, child of a deceased or retired staff member who had served for more than five years on an annual salary, or child of an employee of the City of New York or of a City agency who is required to live outside the City of New York in the performance of his/her official duties, or a student who is determined to be eligible for free tuition on the basis of his or her employment with The City University of New York).

Certificates of Residency must be presented by non City resident students to the community college no earlier than two months prior to the first day of classes. Certificates are valid for one year. If a county declines to issue a certificate, students may appeal directly to the New York State Secretary of State. Out-of-status or undocumented immigrants who are refused certificates of residence by their counties, must pay the non-resident rate regardless of whether they originally qualified for the resident rate.

The certificates must then be presented by community colleges to the State counties no later than 30 days after the start of the semester. Counties may refuse to make payment after 30 days.

All New York State counties are required to pay the local sponsor share for their residents who attend a NY State community college, regardless of location of attendance. The county chargeback serves as the local sponsor share for non New York City resident students. The county chargeback has an operating component and a capital component. The operating rate varies each year; the capital rate remains constant at $300. The Office of the University Controller issues a memorandum annually to the colleges and each State County’s applicable official indicating the CUNY county chargeback rate for that year.
