Tuition and Fees Information

All tuition and fees are determined by the City University of New York (CUNY) Board of Trustees and are subject to change without notice. In the event of an increase in the tuition and fee prices, payments already made will be treated as partial payments. Notification will be given to students concerning the amount owed and the deadline date to pay.

Tuition is charged based upon the following criteria:

  • Residency Status; NY State Resident or Non-NY State Resident
  • Student Status; Doctoral or Graduate Student
  • Degree Status; Degree Student (Matriculated) or Non-Degree Student (Non-Matriculated)
  • Full-Time or Part-Time Status (Some groups pay per credit so please review the table of charges)
  • Number of Credits (As applicable. Some students pay flat rates so please review the table of charges.)
  • Doctoral Level – each level I, II and III pay different rates

If a student is enrolled full-time and drops to part-time status on or after the first official day of classes (which might not be your first day of classes), the full-time fee rate is charged. Mandatory fees are non-refundable except for students who drop all their classes prior to the first official day of classes.
