You may pay by check, traveler's check, certified check, or postal money order payable to SUNY New Paltz, or by VISA, American Express, MasterCard, or with cash.


Drop Box
The Office of Student Accounts has a drop box that can be used by students who want to pay when the office is closed. The drop box is located at the loading dock in the basement of Haggerty Administration Building (facing the parking lot). Be sure to put your payment and invoice in a sealed envelope. Never put cash in the drop box.


By Phone
Students may pay by credit card over the phone at 845 257-3150 with a VISA, American Express, or MasterCard. Permission from the cardholder must be obtained if the student is using a credit card that does not belong to him/her. Currently, office personnel must take your credit card information.


Electronic Funds Transfer (EFT)
Students have two options to transfer money electronically to SUNY New Paltz. The first option is to send the funds directly from a personal bank account into the College's bank account. The other option is through peerTransfer (, which allows the student to initiate the transfer in the currency of their choice. PeerTransfer then converts the currency into US dollars and deposits the payment directly into the College's account. Fees are charged for either of these options by the student's bank or by peerTransfer depending on which option is used. Please contact the Office of Student Accounts for more information.
