Bursar’s Office/Payment

Payment is required by the due dates for each semester. For the Summer 2014 semester, payments are due the at the time of registration. For the Fall 2014 semester payments are due the second week of August (in-person payments by 11 am August 8th and on-line payments by 9 pm on August 10th). To avoid classes being dropped, please be sure that your account is completely covered by either (a) payment, (b) financial aid (awards/loans must be anticipated/pending), or third party credit/company billing. Students who do not make full payment or who are not fully covered by financial aid or other sources will have their courses deleted prior to the first day of classes for the semester.

As of the first day of the semester (depending on campus, extension site or session), students who fail to make payment or other arrangements to cover their full account, will no longer be deleted from their classes and will be responsible for the charges incurred according to the refund schedule. If you do not plan on attending Westchester Community College this summer and/or fall, you must drop your classes prior to the first day of the semester in which you are registered. If you do not, all tuition and fees are your responsibility.

The College is offering a tuition payment plan for the Fall semester (there is no payment plan for the summer semester), which will open on June 1st. In order to be eligible for participation in the payment plan, a student must have a minimum balance after other credits of $750.00 in tuition/fees due the College. Tuition payments will be due in three equal installments through the on-line payment system. A non-refundable $50.00 payment plan enrollment fee will be required and must be paid prior to enrollment into the payment plan. The number of participants in the payment plan will be limited and will be on a first-come, first-served basis. Check payments are not accepted. The due dates for the Fall semester are:

  • August 11
  • September 1
  • October 1

Failure to make payment(s) by the due date(s) will result in classes being deleted. If you register after August 11, the first and second installments will be required by September 1 to avoid classes being deleted. If you fail to make the third installment payment, your classes will not be deleted, but you will be responsible for all amounts due, including late fees, and will be prevented from registering or obtaining transcripts.
