Office of the Bursar

The Bursar’s Office provides professional, courteous, timely and accurate services to students and the SPH community while adhering to all policies, procedures and regulatory requirements set forth by the City University of New York (CUNY), NY State and the Federal Government.

Our core responsibilities include the collection and processing of tuition and fee payments, maintaining student financial records, managing student refunds, overseeing student payment plans and implementing collection processes.



  • On July 2020, CUNY Central completed configuration for the final SPH Tuition Differential Rate for our Master’s in Public Health (MPH) and Doctorate in Public Health (DPH) programs as per CUNY Board of Trustees approval. This differential tuition increase is to provide optimal support and opportunity to our students and to sustain competitive educational programs. When compared to other CUNY campuses and other local comparable colleges and universities who provide specialized graduate and doctoral degrees, SPH has the lowest tuition rates. If payments have already been made on your account for the Fall 2020, they will be treated as partial payments.
