Employee Tuition Reimbursement

If your employer provides tuition reimbursement, you may be eligible for tuition deferral in any of the academic terms. To qualify, each term your employer must provide the Bursar with a letter stating payment will be made directly to the College and the percentage or dollar amount of payment for which you are eligible. This letter must be on the employer’s official letterhead.  The difference between the cost of tuition and fees and your employer’s contribution must be paid by the tuition deadline. You may be required to sign a form authorizing the College to submit your grades directly to the employer. The student will be held financially liable in the event that their employer fails to fulfill the financial obligation 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 made in writing. Official receipts will only be given for semesters taken during the current academic year.


All payments made to the College must be made in the form of a bank check, cash, electronic (online), money order, or personal check. Tuition and fees may also be charged to American Express, MasterCard or Visa accounts.

Payment Plan (TouchNet)

Students may make arrangements for payment plans, for Fall or Spring semesters, by the tuition deadline. A non-refundable enrollment fee of $40 is due at the time of set-up. Late payments are subject to late charges. The remaining balance can be divided into 6, 5, 4, or 3 months:


Fall semester (6 month plan)

July 15 through December 15
  Spring semester (5 month plan) January 15 through May 15

Payment plans are available only for Fall and Spring semesters.

Automatic deduction is available through our third party payment plan company (TouchNet).

Delinquent Accounts

Students who fail to meet their financial obligations to the College will not be allowed to register for subsequent semesters. They will not receive transcripts until full payment has been received.  The college will also withhold diplomas from all students with past-due balances.


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.  Transcripts and diplomas are not released for any student who is in default on any federal student loans.  Contact Colleen Choquette, Manager of Collections & Default Management at 914.654.5539 if you have any questions.

Withdrawal Schedules / Refunds

Fall and Spring Semesters Only

Partial refunds of tuition, room and board are made to students who withdraw early from the Fall or Spring semester.

Students who register for a course, never attend, or do not complete the official withdrawal process will be 100% financially liable for the course.
