Payment Policy Information

After scheduling classes, all students will be emailed a billing statement for tuition & fees with instructions for making payment.

Students with outstanding balances will receive multiple emailed billing statements throughout each semester. Each billing statement will list the amount due in full by the due date (and will include an additional late fee of $50) appearing on your statement. Any unpaid charges from the previous statement will be brought forward, and additional charges, payments, and credits will be shown.

The billing statement also will show and subtract any authorized deferments in the calculation of the amount due. These include Pell grants, loans (Stafford, Perkins, or Nursing), TAP and other grants and scholarships.

Students must have proof of approved aid, waivers, or scholarships in order to properly defer payment. Without satisfactory evidence to defer, students are expected to pay charges up front and wait for reimbursement when the aid, waiver or scholarship funds are actually received.

Students should apply early for any financial aid they expect to use to pay their university bill.

Students can always check their student account status by calling 315-684-6069 or coming directly to the cashier's window on the fourth floor of the Whipple Administration Building.

Residence & Meal Plan Policies

Residence Policies

Once a student has occupied their room for one night, they are liable for one half (50%)of the semester dormitory charge. Once the room has been occupied in the ninth week, the Student is responsible for the full semester's charge (100%).

Meal Plan Policies

Students who withdraw from the college will be billed a prorated portion of the meal plan up to, and including, the last date of use (first five weeks of class).

Returned Checks

All checks returned by a bank due to insufficient funds will be assessed a $20.00 returned check charge. Payment must then be made in the form of a money order, certified check, cash, Visa, Mastercard, or Discover.

A $50.00 late payment fee will be assessed if the returned check was in payment of your semester charges.

We reserve the right to protest a returned check.
