Expenses



Tuition and Fees (2023-2024)

The responsibility for payment rests upon the student. Tuition and fees are payable at the Student Accounts Office according to a payment schedule released by the College for each semester published in the student portal. The College cancels schedules for non-payment, once prior to the Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters. Students should not rely on their schedule being canceled for non-payment. Students must officially drop their course(s) prior to the start of the semester in order to avoid financial liability.

Certificate of Residency

NYS Residency Requirements

To qualify for the resident tuition fee, a student is required by law (NYS Education Law, Section 6305) to present once each academic year, a residency certificate indicating that he or she has been a legal resident of the State of New York for one year, and of a county for six months. The certificate of residency obtained from your home county is the only proof of residence that qualifies for resident or in-state tuition.

New York State Counties will issue certificates up to 60 calendar days prior to the start of the semester and until 30 calendar days into the semester.  Counties are permitted by law to refuse applications after the 30th day of the semester. Many counties adhere to this deadline with NO EXCEPTIONS.

Note: Tuition bills will include non-resident charges for students who have not submitted a valid certificate of residency to the Student Accounts Office. Non-resident charges DOUBLE the tuition portion of the bill.

Please visit the Residency Information web page for details.

Refund Policies, Procedures

Tuition Refund Policy

New York State has mandated the current refund policy for all SUNY community colleges.

Things to remember about refunds

  • You must officially drop a course to be eligible for a tuition refund.
  • If you register for a course but do not attend, you are still liable for the tuition and fees.
  • Fees are not refundable after the semester has started.
  • Refunds are determined by the start of the semester, not the day the course starts.
  • If you have not paid your bill and drop a course, your amount due will be adjusted by the refund percentage that corresponds to the date of your drop.

How to Officially Drop a Course

  • Before registration starts, log onto MyCollege, select the “My Courses & Registration” tab, then select “Course Schedules & Registration”, then “Schedule Planner”, and then “Add or Drop Classes.”
  • After the semester starts, an official “Add / Drop or Schedule Adjustment” form needs to be signed by the Department Chairperson or an authorized College Advisor, and filed with the Registrar’s Office.

Refund Procedure

An application for refund of tuition and fees must be made in writing in the Registrar’s Office (SS 105). The application must be on the College form provided. The date on which the application is filed is considered the official date of the student’s withdrawal and any refund to which the student may be entitled is computed using that date.

Title IV Financial Aid Refund Policy

Students who receive Title IV financial assistance (Pell, SEOG or Stafford Direct Loans) are subject to the most recent guidelines mandated by the Higher Education Act Amendment. If -and only if- they officially withdraw or are administratively withdrawn from the institution, the unearned funds received for tuition, fees, and other educational expenses, must be returned to the Federal Title IV programs. This return may result in an outstanding balance due to SUNY Broome Community College and/or to the U.S. Department of Education. All other cases (e.g. partial withdrawals) will follow the N.Y.S. mandated refund policy for community colleges.


Other Procedures

Students who defer tuition on Financial Aid and who then become ineligible to receive that aid or any portion of it will be subject to an immediate obligation for payment and/or collection of tuition, fees and disbursements. The College reserves the right to use whatever collection procedures it deems appropriate to satisfy any outstanding debt. The total outstanding debt may include additional fees incurred due to collection activities. The fees will vary depending on the debt. Additional fees may be as much as 33 1/3 percent of the debt plus attorney/court fees.

Withholding Diplomas
