Deadlines and Late Fees

Students can accept their financial responsibility and pay their invoice online at, or by returning a signed copy of their invoice with payment or payment arrangements no later than the close of business on the stated due date.

Payment arrangements include enrollment in New Paltz Time Payment Plan (during the Fall and Spring semesters), actual financial aid, proof of external funding, such as a scholarship, that will be sent directly to the College, VESID benefits, or approved tuition waivers. DO NOT DEDUCT WORK STUDY AWARDS FROM INVOICE. Work study money is paid directly to the students for work performed and cannot be applied to any college fees. New students whose financial aid is not finalized may apply for a one time personal deferral which will extend their payment due date.

Summer Session invoices are due two weeks prior to the first day of the semester, regardless of when a course begins. Students with unpaid balances will be automatically de-registered from their course(s) the following day. Reinstatement is subject to course availability at that time and is not guaranteed. In addition, an Administrative Fee of $30 will be assessed to a student's account upon reinstatement. Students enrolled in at least 6 credits with a completed FAFSA and Summer Financial Aid Application on file with the Financial Aid Office are eligible for a deferral. Please contact the Office of Student Accounts for the Summer deferral form.

Payment must be received by the Office of Student Accounts by the stated due date. Failure to do so may result in de-registration from classes and/or the addition of late penalties. Payment is due immediately for any classes added on or after the first day of the semester. All invoices will be emailed to the student's email account.

Accounts that are not paid in full also run the risk of being sent to a private collection agency or to the New York State Attorney General's Office for collection, in accordance with SUNY policy. Accounts that are sent for collection may incur additional collection charges of 22% or more.

Unpaid accounts are subject to DE-REGISTRATION (see Academic Calendar for scheduled De-Registration date).
