How Your Charges are Calculated

Your enrollment charges are based on several factors:

  • Whether you are considered a New York state resident or an out-of-state student;
  • Your center or unit location, as well as your level of study (undergraduate or graduate);
  • Your registered number of credit hours;
  • Whether you are matriculated into a degree program or a nonmatriculated student; and,
  • If you are active military personnel or eligible veteran.
