Section IV: Tuition and Fees


   

Tuition and Fees

Effective Fall 2016

All fees and tuition charges listed in this catalog and in any registration materials issued by the college are subject to change by action of the trustees of the City University of New York without prior notice.

Students who now live in New York State but have had an address out of the state must submit proof of New York State residency. New students submit their documentation to the Admissions Office and continuing students to the Registrar’s Office. Applications for proof of New York State residency can be obtained in the Office of the Registrar, Room 217 Hunter North, Hunter College, 695 Park Ave., New York, NY 10065. If, at the time of registration, proof of New York State residence has not been approved, students must pay out-of-state tuition; if acceptable proof is submitted and subsequently approved by the Registrar’s Office during the semester, a refund will be issued from the Bursar’s Office.

Veterans who are not New York State residents will be charged the same tuition rate as New York State residents for a period of 18 months from the first date of attendance at a CUNY college.

Transcripts

Application for transcripts should be addressed to the Transcripts Division of the Registrar’s Office with correct remittance. The Registrar’s Office is located in room 217 North. (212) 772-4474

The application must state the name and address of the official to whom the information is to be mailed. Transcripts of records are mailed to the student’s home school only if requested by the student. In accordance with the general practice of colleges and universities, complete official transcripts and certificates (those bearing the original signature and seal) are sent directly by the university, not transmitted by the applicant. No transcripts will be issued for students who have unpaid financial obligations to Hunter College. The fee for the issuance of transcripts is waived when the transcript is to be forwarded from one unit of the City University to another.

Requests for certificates and other statements should also be addressed to the Registration Division of the Office of the Registrar.

Cancellation Policy

The college’s cancellation policy is both published on our website (www.hunter.cuny.edu/bursar/tuition-fees/cancellation-of-classes) and detailed on a student’s online account. The policy is also outlined in the sched­ule of classes.

Refund Policy

There are two types of student refunds.   One relates to students who drop their classes during the first three weeks of classes and have overpaid, the other involves the calculation of Federal Aid earned for Federal financial aid recipients only.

CUNY Policy - General refunds

This policy relates to all students who withdraw from courses prior to the first official day of the fourth week of classes. The refund policy is as follows:

  • 100% tuition and fees prior to 1st official day of term
  • 75% tuition only prior to 1st day of 2nd week of term (fees are non-refundable)
  • 50% tuition only prior to 1st day of 3rd week of term (fees are non-refundable)
  • 25% tuition only prior to 1st day of 4th week of term (fees are non-refundable)

Return of Title IV (Federal Aid) Refunds

Students who completely officially withdraw or unofficially withdraw from ALL their class(es) and received Federal Financial Aid are subject to a Return of Title IV Funds calculation.  It must be a COMPLETE withdrawal.  A withdrawal from one class is not subject to this calculation; however it can affect a student’s eligibility to receive financial aid.

Federal law states that the amount of Federal aid earned is determined by the amount of days the student is enrolled in class(es). The Office of Financial Aid will perform a calculation for each student subject to these rules and send a notification to the student. Students are expected to pay whatever liability is not covered by the amount of financial aid earned. Students who earn more funds than are required to satisfy their bill will be sent a post-withdrawal disbursement notification so they can receive these excess funds. Please note that students who officially or unofficially withdraw are not entitled to a tuition refund because withdrawal grades carry a liability like any other class.
