Reminder That Students Needn't Stand in Line When They Can Pay Online

As students prepare to register for the summer and fall 2014 semesters, please remind them to regularly check their CUNYfirst accounts and to read their York College email. Also student CUNYfirst accounts provide the most up to date information on student academic and financial records.

Upon registering for classes, the quickest and most efficient way to pay tuition and fees is online. Students may choose to pay online with a credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover), eCheck or eSavings. A convenience fee of 2.65% is charged for each credit card payment, but using the eCheck and eSavings options are free. Credit cards are not accepted at the Bursar's Office service window, but cash, certified checks and money orders are accepted at the service window. Effective fall 2014, tuition at CUNY will increase. The revised tuition rates can be found on the Bursar's Office web page at

The Bursar's Office has taken great strides in going green. Students will find that the majority of our correspondence is sent via email. If they've not already, students should claim their York email account by visiting the following link: Any students needing technical assistance to do this should visit the Help Desk, which is located in College's library.

The Bursar's Office will be opened during the following hours to accept tuition and fees, and miscellaneous payments:

When classes are in session:

Monday and Thursday 9:00am to 6:30pm
Tuesday and Wednesday 9:00am to 5:00pm
Friday 9:00am to 12:00pm

When classes are not in session:

Monday through Thursday 9:00am to 5:00pm
Friday 9:00am to 12:00pm

The office will also be opened on Saturday, April 12, 2014, from 10:00am to 2:00pm.

Please remind your students to make sure that all their outstanding debts have been paid in full to prevent a Bursar negative service indicator from appearing their accounst. A negative service indicator will inhibit any student from receiving services from the college, which include but are not limited to registering for future semesters and receiving copies of college transcripts.

Students should be reminded that they don't need to stand in line when they can pay online.
