Undergraduate Catalog 2019-2020

Tuition and Fees


Effective Fall 2019

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, the tuition will be adjusted accordingly to the in-state rate.

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.
