Commonly Asked Questions

How can I pay my bill?

You may remit cash, check or money order for the amount due to the Bursar's office. Check or money orders should be made payable to "BMCC". Check or money orders may also be mailed to BMCC-Bursar Rm S330, 199 Chambers Street, New York, NY  10007. The Bursar's office will provide you with a receipt for the amount paid. Do not remit cash through the mail or the express payment slot located outside the Bursar Office. Students whose checks are returned by the bank will be subject to a $20.00 reprocessing fee and will be required to make all subsequent payments by cash or money order. Students settling a prior semester balance to obtain clearance for registration, transcript or re-admission must make payment via cash or money order for immediate clearance.

Can I pay my bill with a credit or debit card?

Effective March 13, 2016, you will no longer be able to use a credit or debit card to make payments directly to BMCC for Spring 2016 tuition and fees or past due balances.  For terms beginning with Summer 2016, credit or debit card transactions will be processed via the CUNY payment plan, which can be accessed through CUNYfirst Self Service.  The payment plan provides you with the option of paying tuition and fees over a period of up to six months.  The plan is interest free.  There is a $95 enrollment fee for the payment plan per term.  However, if you opt for direct withdrawals from a bank account, a discount will be provided to lower the enrollment fee to $40 per term.

 

Can I pay online by check?

Yes, you may pay online by e-check, which electronically debits your checking account. When paying by e-check, you will be asked to enter both your checking account number (NOT your debit card number) and bank routing number. Both of these numbers appear on the front of the check. THERE IS NO FEE FOR THIS SERVICE.

 

What if I cannot pay my entire balance?

The City University of New York makes college more affordable by allowing you to better manage your payments over time 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.  The deferred payment plan continues to be an interest free benefit for students and their families.  Enrollment in the payment plan allows you to set up monthly payments with a credit/debit card or with electronic check.  The enrollment fee for the payment plan is $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.

How can I apply for the tuition payment plan?

Log into CUNYfirst Self-Service and go to your Student Center.  Go to Finances and select Enroll/Manage Payment Plan

Can I pay my bill with a Third Party Voucher?

You must provide the Bursar with a voucher authorizing the college to bill the third party agency directly. The voucher must be presented to the Bursar by the due date indicated on your bill. You are required to remit payment for any amount not covered by the third party voucher. Please note that employee reimbursement plans are not considered third party.

What happens if I fail to pay my bill by the due date?

Late fees and penalties may apply.  In addition, your registration may be subject to cancellation. The Bursar's Office staff is available to assist you with any questions you have concerning your bill payment.
