Auditing a Class
Online courses cannot be audited.

Billing Procedure
Online invoices for the Winter 2014–15 term will be generated upon student registration for a course. Paper invoices are not mailed. Payment is due in full by the due date listed on the invoice. Students will be alerted via New Paltz email that their charges are available for viewing on their my.newpaltz.edu accounts. Instructions for locating the invoice on my.newpaltz.edu are available on the Student Accounts website. Payment may be made online, in person, or through the mail by VISA, MasterCard, American Express, check or cash (if paying in person). More information regarding payment options is available at the Student Accounts web site. Payment is due immediately for classes added after Dec. 8. Failure to make payment in full or payment arrangements and acknowledge your semester charges by the stated due date on your invoice can result in late penalties and possible de-registration from your course. Courses with low enrollment due to the de-registration process are subject to cancellation. Re-instatement in to the same class is subject to course availability at the time you re-register and is not guaranteed.
