Expenses

Tuition and other charges are set at the minimum for financially responsible operations, and are below actual costs. Gifts and grants received through the generosity of alumni, friends, corporations, and foundations play a significant part in reducing this difference.

Payment

The Fall Semester bill is issued on July 1 and is payable in full on August 13. The Spring Semester bill is issued on December 8 and is payable in full on January 7. If payment arrangements have not been made by the invoice due date any continuing student may have their registration and housing assignment cancelled for the semester.

All payments made to the College must be made in the form of cash, check or money order. Tuition and fees may also be charged to Visa or MasterCard accounts.

Monthly Payment Plan (MPP) - For Pre-Licensure Nursing Students

As an alternative to payment in full, The College of New Rochelle offers an optional payment program for students who wish to pay monthly. This program, the “College of New Rochelle Monthly Payment Plan” (MPP), makes possible the budgeting of a fixed amount (after a down payment has been made) of amounts due the College for tuition, room and board, and fees. Costs for books, supplies, and deposits are excluded. The remaining balance is then paid monthly. 

Interest is not charged on the unpaid balance and life insurance is provided on the principal signatory to the agreement.

The fee for participation in the MPP is $70 per student per year. A descriptive brochure is available upon request to the Bursar’s Office.

Each student is required to choose one of the other payment option (payment in full or MPP) prior to the start of each semester. No other arrangements are allowed.

Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) - For RN and Master’s Nursing Students

RN and Master’s nursing students may make arrangements for deferred payments during in-person and mail-in registration. A deposit of 25% for each three-credit course and a non-refundable service fee of $47 are due at the time of registration. All applicable fees must also be paid at the time of registration. The remaining balance is due in three equal installments as follows:

  Fall Semester   October 15, November 15, and December 15
  Spring Semester   February 15, March 15, and April 15

Financial Aid Recipients

If a student expects to receive financial aid as shown on their financial aid award letter, he/she may subtract the expected financial aid from any charges owed the College. Employment from the College Work-Study program or the Campus Employment program should not be subtracted from the charges. The student will be responsible for paying the balance not covered by financial aid to the College.

Official Bursar Receipts

Any student who wishes to receive an Official Bursar Receipt may request one after the Add/Drop period of the semester. The Bursar’s office must be given at least 48 hours notice to prepare the required document(s) and all requests must be done in writing. Official receipts will only be given for semesters taken during the current calendar year.

Delinquent Accounts

Students who fail to meet their financial obligations to the College will not be able to complete the check-in process at the beginning of the semester and will be barred from selecting rooms and registering for subsequent semesters. They will not receive transcripts and placement folder materials will not be issued until full payment has been received. The College will withhold diplomas from all students with past-due balances.

Default

Students who are in default of any federal student loans are not eligible to receive any financial aid or an employee tuition waiver. When in default, in order to register for a class the student must pay all tuition and fees at time of registration.

Registration Clearance

At registration, each student will receive a Bursar’s clearance to register. Bursar’s clearance is provided to a student who:

  1. Has a zero or credit balance on his/her bill;
  2. Provides to the financial aid counselor with any of the following documents, in the amount sufficient to cover any balance due the College:
    1. a TAP Award Certificate;
    2. a signed Federal Perkins Loan promissory note;
    3. a Federal Direct Loan promissory note;
    4. a personal check, money order, Visa or MasterCard.
