Undergraduate Catalog 2017-2018

Tuition and Fees


Effective Fall 2017

All tuition and fee 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.

Please note: Veterans who are not New York State residents are 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.

Refunds

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 student’s online bills. The policy is also outlined in the sched­ule of classes.

CUNY Policy This policy relates to all students who withdraw from courses prior to the 1st day of the 4th week of class. 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 not refundable)
  • 50% tuition only prior to 1st day of 3rd week of term (fees are not refundable)
  • 25% tuition only prior to 1st day of 4th week of term (fees are not refundable)

Federal Title IV Funds/Pro-Rata Refunds Students who completely and 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. The college will calculate how much Title IV aid has been earned by the student based on a period of atten­dance. The unearned portion of the Title IV funds must be returned to the Department of Education by the college and the student.  It is recommended that all students who have financial aid and plan to withdraw from classes seek the advice of the Office of Financial Aid before taking any action.

Special Provisions for Students in the Military

The following policies apply to students who leave CUNY to fulfill military obligations. Military personnel for whom these provisions apply must register each semester with the Veterans Affairs representative in Student Affairs, Room 1119 Hunter East.

  1. Grades In order to obtain a grade, a student must attend 13 weeks (five weeks for summer session).

Students who volunteer (enlist) for the military

  1. Grades Same provision as for students called up to the reserves. In order to obtain a grade, a student must attend 13 weeks (five weeks for summer session).
