If you decide to not attend after registering, you must officially withdraw.  Students who complete a drop slip (phone calls are not accepted) with Records and Registration by the close of business August 26, 2016 will not incur charges.  Appropriate refunds for paid tuition will only be granted upon the completion and submission of an official withdraw form to the Registrar’s Office, either before the semester start date, or during the published refund period.  All students will incur tuition and fee charges starting August 29, 2016.

Simply notifying the classroom instructor is not sufficient.  Non-attendance does not constitute an OFFICIAL drop. Any student who does not withdraw and remains unpaid at the end of the refund period will be liable for full tuition and fees.  Non-payment does not limit student’s liability.  Student’s are responsible for knowing the deadlines for withdrawal and abiding by them.

Delinquent Accounts

Students will be billed before the  semester begins and at the end of the refund periods.  Paper bills are mailed to the most current address on file, with an electronic copy available through the student’s MYSUNYOrange account.  Students are responsible for maintaining a valid address on file with the College.  Failure to receive a bill does not limit student’s liability.

Students are subject to a $50.00 late payment fee, if payment arrangements or financial aid are not in place by the payment deadline.  Any account that remains unpaid will be assigned to a collection agency. The student will be responsible for paying additional collection contingency fees (up to 50% of the deliquent account balance)

Non-Credit Classes

Refund policy will be based upon the start date of the class.  A refund of 100% of tuition and fees for courses dropped prior to the course start date.  On the day the course begins and thereafter no refund will be issued.

TIV Federal Refund Policy

Title IV Federal Financial Aid students who withdraw from the College during the first 60% of the semester will have their financial aid recalculated according to the Higher Education Amendments of 1998, 34 CFR part 668.22.  Some grant recipients may owe repayment to both the institution and the Federal Government as a result of this recalculation.

Please note the following when applying for a refund:

Full-time students are eligible for tuition refunds only when their semester course load drops below 12 credits. The refund will be calculated by determining the difference between the previous full-time enrollment threshold of 12 credits and the new part-time enrollment and then applying the appropriate refund percentage to the difference in dropped credits.

  • Refund payments are not immediate. Allow approximately six weeks for processing and mailing during the fall/spring semesters and four weeks during the summer/winter sessions.
  • Credit courses eight weeks or less in length are subject to a refund schedule appropriate to the length of the course.
  • A course canceled by the college will be refunded all tuition and fees relative to the cancelled course.
