Students can now pay their tuition and fee charges that appear on their CUNYFirst account online. The College accepts either a credit card or an EFT (Electronic Funds Transfer) directly from your checking/savings account. You can pay your bill 24 hours a day, 7 days a week from anywhere in the world.
Online Payment Benefits:
- Student's CUNYFirst accounts are updated within minutes of their processed online payment.
- Students will receive an email confirmation of their payment(s) provided that they supplied an email address to the online payment servicer, EDS.
- Students can review up to 18 months of payment history information online.
Credit Card Payments:
Students using their credit card to pay their tuition and fee bill will incur a convenience fee in addition to the amount being charged. This fee is approximately 2.65% of the total charge.
Electronic Fund Transfers (EFT):
Students using their checking/savings account to pay their tuition and fee bill incur NO additional charges. EFT transactions are FREE. Student must use a valid bank account and supply their bank account number and routing number. This process takes 24-48 hours and no transaction is complete until the funds are removed from your bank account. Although the payment may appear as paid and processed on CUNYFirst, it is in fact possible your EFT was rejected by the bank. Please be aware of this and monitor your bank account and email account.
Students who have their payment rejected by the bank for insufficient funds or an invalid or closed bank account will incur a $20 service-reprocessing fee and have a Bursar HOLD placed on their student account. Students will also be unable to use an EFT in the future to pay their bill.
Students who provide an invalid bank account or routing number will have their payment rejected by the bank and will not see the funds taken out of their personal account. The College Servicer will send an email to the student as notification. Payment must be made immediately to avoid registration cancellation.
Students who want to use their debit card and do not have a bank account linked to it will be able to use it like the credit card option above. Please note that a convenience fee will be charged.
Students who want to use their debit card and have a bank account linked to it, MUST use the EFT option to avoid paying a convenience fee.
Online Payments & Bursar HOLD:
If you are making a payment because you have a Bursar HOLD, your record will reflect your payment immediately; however, your HOLD will not be lifted until the next business day. If you need to have your stop removed right away, please email your confirmation receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include your full name and the last four digits of your student ID# in your email so we can identify you.
