For students who prefer to pay tuition and expenses on a monthly basis, the college offers a payment plan. Please contact the Student Accounts Office (845-569-3214) for an application or additional information.

A late payment fee will be assessed if the student account balance is not satisfied by the due date. Students will not be allowed to register for classes, receive their diploma or an official transcript with an outstanding balance. A late registration fee will be charged to all returning students who register on or after the first day of the semester or session. Past due accounts are subject to collection costs.

The estimated expenses per year for books and supplies is $1,000; estimated expenses per year for personal costs (spending money, laundry and incidental needs) is $1,000; estimated costs per year for commuter transportation is $1,500. Students planning to live off-campus should allow approximately $5,400 per year for rental and $1,800 per year for food.
