The following is an important message regarding the use of a credit or debit card 
for online payments effective March 13, 2016.

This is to advise you that CUNY will be making revisions to the procedures for utilizing a Credit or Debit card for tuition and fee payments.

Effective March 13, 2016, all Credit and Debit Card transactions will only be processed via the University’s Payment Plan. The Payment Plan provides students and their families the option of paying their tuition and fees over a period of up to six months.  This flexibility enables everyone to reduce the burden of paying all tuition and fees prior to the start of the academic term.  This deferred payment plan continues to be an interest free benefit for students and their families.

Effective with the Summer 2016 semester, the Enrollment Fee for the Payment Plan will be $95 per term.  For students and their families who opt for direct withdrawals from their bank accounts, a discount will be provided which will lower the Enrollment Fee to $40 per term.

The eCheck payment option through CUNYfirst Self-Service remains an alternative payment option that is cost effective since it does not require an Enrollment Fee.

We trust that these changes will cause minimum disruption, and allow our students to continue to have a variety of payment options.

If you have any questions, please contact the Bursar's Office at or 718-960-8573.

Third Party Payment

If you are expecting your tuition to be funded by an outside third party, such as a scholarship or fellowship from an organization outside of Lehman College, by your employer, or by a private loan, you must notify the Bursar and provide documentation before your bill due date to avoid class cancellation.

Note: Financial aid will appear on students’ bills automatically when the aid has been approved.
