The Fall semester bill is payable in full on August 14th. The Spring semester bill is payable in full on January 15th. 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 bank check, cash, electronic (on-line), personal check or money order. Tuition and fees may also be charged to American Express, MasterCard or Visa accounts.

Payment Plans (TouchNet)

As an alternative to payment in full, The College of New Rochelle offers an optional payment program for those who wish to pay monthly. This program, through TouchNet, makes possible the budgeting of a fixed amount due the College for tuition, room and board, and fees (costs for books, supplies are excluded). The remaining balance is then paid monthly.

Interest is not charged on the unpaid balance. Students can set up plans ranging from 6 to 3 months for the Fall semester and 5 to 3 months for the Spring semester.

The fee for participation is $40 per student, per semester, and late payments are subject to late fees.

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

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 to 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. All balances should be confirmed with the Bursar’s Office.

Employee Tuition Reimbursement

If the student’s employer provides tuition reimbursement, he/she may be eligible for tuition deferral. To qualify, each term the student’s 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 the student is eligible. This letter must be on the employer’s official letterhead.

By the tuition deadline, students must pay the difference between the cost of tuition and fees and the employer’s contribution, or use the Monthly Payment Plan. The student may also be required to sign an agreement authorizing the College to submit their 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 that 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 academic 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  until full payment has been received. The College also reserves the right to 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 deferral student loans.  Contact Colleen Choquette, Manager of Collections & Default Management at 914.654.5539 if you have any questions.
