CUNY requires new students to pay a commitment deposit beginning Spring 2011
On June 28, 2010, the Board of Trustees of the City University of New York approved the implementation of a non-refundable commitment deposit of $100 for undergraduate students, and $250 for students in masters and professional programs, indicating their intention to enroll in such programs. This commitment deposit will be applied toward tuition upon enrollment. Students receiving full financial aid will receive a refund of the deposit upon final confirmation of aid eligibility.
Payment of the commitment deposit will ensure priority scheduling for orientation and registration. Undergraduate transfer students will receive a preliminary evaluation of previously completed course work prior to orientation.
The commitment deposit is due on December 15 (for Spring semester), May 1 (for Fall semester) or fifteen days after the date of the admission letter (whichever is later). Undergraduate conditional students are required to pay the Commitment Deposit after completing and passing the required CUNY Assessment Tests.
The Commitment Deposit will be waived for students who file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and have an Expected Family Contribution (EFC) of $3,000 or less. SEEK students, staff members receiving tuition waivers, Ph.D. candidates, as well as graduate students enrolling in the Rockland Teacher's Center or NYC Teaching Fellows Program are not required to pay the commitment deposit. Deposit waivers based on financial hardship will be considered based on demonstrated financial need.
