Tuition and Fees

Registration is done a first come first serve basis. The tuition is listed for each course listing. There is a $2 Insurance Fee for each student per semester which is mandatory. Returned checks will incur a $25 fee per check returned. Foreign check handling fee per check will be $10.

* Please note that purchases of materials (textbooks, workbooks, consumables, equipment, etc.) may be required for certain courses (see specific course description). This cost is not included in the course tuition unless specified. Please see our website or call for purchasing information.

Payment

Payment can be made by mail, in person, by phone, via fax, or online. You can pay your tuition and fees by cash (Middletown only), check, money order, MasterCard, Visa, Discover, American Express, or the Tuition Pay plan. If you are using a charge card, you must provide card number and expiration date, student's name, cardholder's name (if different from student's), and cardholder's zip code.

Registration

Registration for 1-day courses must be received prior to the start date of the course (unless otherwise noted). Payment for tuition at off-campus locations must be made by check, money order, MasterCard, Visa, Discover or American Express. SUNY Orange reserves the right to change instructors and program offerings.

Stop/Holds

Students that have unmet financial obligations to the College or who failed to comply with college requirements will not be permitted to register until the stop/hold is cleared with the issuing office. In addition, all information relating to student records will be withheld in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act.

Drop/Add

Students who completed registration for courses may add other courses and/or change the courses throughout the semester. They may also withdraw (drop) by deadlines listed (see refund policy). Drop/Add forms are available at the Records and Registration Office.

Refund/Policy

100%, if written request is received prior to first day of class. There will be no refunds on the day the class begins and thereafter. See special refund conditions in the course descriptions for certain courses. Refund payment are processed and mailed approximately four to six weeks after the cancellation date.

Students unable to attend the courses they registered for must inform the Continuing and Professional Education department in writing that they wish to withdraw. Failure to complete the course DOES NOT constitute official withdrawal, nor does notification of the instructor. The lack of attendance alone DOES NOT entitle the student to a refund. Refund requests cannot be made by telephone, online, or through the instructor.

Course Cancellation

All Continuing and Professional Education courses are subject to minimum enrollment. When courses are cancelled by the College for any reason, students may transfer payment to another course or receive a full refund. SUNY Orange reserves the right to cancel any class for which there is insufficient enrollment and to withdraw or modify course offerings. Course locations, dates, fees, and instructors may also be changed when necessary. Check our website for the most up to date information regarding course offerings, schedule, locations and fees.

Session Cancellation Policy

The College will make every effort to accommodate emergency situations that may occur such as severe weather conditions, a facility issue or instructor illness, in most cases the total number of hours advertised for the course will be honored.

Senior Discount

Community Enrichment has a limited number of Senior Citizen Discount Coupons available. These coupons are worth $10 towards course tuition for selected non-credit courses. You must obtain that coupon from the Continuing and Professional Education office prior to registering. Please call 845-341-4890.

Accessibility Services

The Office of Accessibility Services (OAS) provides services to students with disabilities. Services are coordinated for individuals with disabilities including, but not limited to, those with physical, learning, mental health, chronic health or sensory related disabilities. Once students have self-identified, applied for services, and provided documentation of their disability, our staff works to determine eligibility for reasonable accommodations. Under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), both the student and the college must carry out these responsibilities in a timely manner. The OAS office is in Room 301 of the Shepard Student Center in Middletown and can be reached at 845-341-4077. For OAS in Newburgh, call 845-341-9034.
