You are here: Home Onestop Finances Bursar Explanation of Tuition and Fees
If you have registered for courses and change your mind about attending please be sure to drop all classes, and don’t simply assume the school will run a cancellation process absolving you of any charges. You must withdraw from your classes prior to the first day of the semester to avoid tuition and fee drop charges. Any student that does not officially withdraw from classes prior to the start of the term will be charged tuition and fees based upon the University’s academic calendar.

IMPORTANT Tuition and Fees Information:

  • Tuition and fees are determined by the the City University of New York (CUNY) Board of Trustees and are subject to change without notice at any time. In the event of a tuition and fee increase, payments already made will be treated as a partial payment. Notification will be given to students concerning the additional amount owed and the deadline to pay.
  • The College is not responsible for students whose registration is canceled for non-payment because they did not receive their notification. Payments are due on the due date and have nothing to do with whether or not the College mailed a notification. Spring Accounts contain winter session charges.
  • Spring accounts contain winter session charges. 
  • If you plan to take 9 credits in the fall term and 3 credits in the winter term, flat rates are NOT applicable.
  • Charges for summer sessions I & II are included on the same account; students in these semesters are always considered part-time.
  • If you plan NOT to attend the College and you have any kind of aid/awards on your CUNYfirst account, you MUST drop your class(es) prior to the first official day of classes to avoid incurring a tuition liability.
  • If you officially withdraw from your classes, you still have a 100% tuition and fee liability. Only withdrawing prior to the end of the third week of classes enables a partial refund of tuition.
  • If you plan to mail your payment, please send a money order made payable to Hunter College, 695 Park Ave, Room 238 North, New York, NY 10065.
  • Students who wish to audit a class for no credit must still pay the regular tuition rates except for students who are registered and classified as Senior Citizen Auditors.
  • If you are classified as a non-resident and you believe that your status is incorrect, new students should contact the Office of Admissions, Room 203 North or (212) 772-4490 and continuing students should contact the One Stop for Students, Room 217 North, or call (212) 772-4474.
  • All concerns regarding incorrect billing rates/charges should be resolved PRIOR to the bill due date.
  • If you move or need to change your address, please bring photo ID and complete a change of address form to the One Stop for Students, Room 217 North. It is important to keep your address current so that the College can send all notifications and tax forms to the correct location.
  • New students who pay the non-refundable commitment deposit will have their deposit credited towards their bill for the term the deposit was made for.  If the student chooses not to attend, the deposit is retained by the College.

Undergraduate Students:

If you are a resident student taking 18 or more credits, you will be charged an accelerated study fee. Please see the General Fee Table for charges.

If you are taking undergraduate courses and are receiving graduate credits for those courses, you must pay graduate rates.
