If you’ve received your acceptance letter for Fall 2020, we look forward to welcoming you soon. Bookmark this page to keep track of everything you need and the latest updates before you start your journey as SUNY New Paltz student.
You can pay your PED through your admissions status portal online. Each applicant also received an application acknowledgment notification which included a personal New Paltz Computer User ID (NPCUID). This number begins with NO (N + zero plus seven additional digits). If you have not already done so, you must first pay your PED. This deposit is NOT an additional fee; it is a down-payment towards your bill, holds your space at New Paltz and will be deducted from the bill you receive once you have registered for classes.
This is also a deposit that that will be credited toward your fall housing. You can pay your ARD through your admissions status portal online or by contacting Student Accounts at 845-257-3150 during business hours. You do not need to pay this fee if you will be commuting to campus (see Res Life page for requirements if you are a first-year student).
The PED/ARD may be refunded if a written request for a refund is received in the Office of Student Accounts as follows:
In no case will refunds be considered if the written request is received after the official first day of classes for that semester (SUNY Administrative Policies 057.7).
Note: If you are an EOP student, your ARD and PED deposits are waived.
