SUNY Plattsburgh Refund Schedules

Billing Procedure

Student Accounts will provide online bills for students who have registered for classes. Review your account, select your optional fees, accept your charges, enroll in a payment plan if you wish, and pay your bill by the due date to avoid receiving an administrative fee and/or late payment fees . For more information, call (518) 564-3120.

Refunds

When a student withdraws from a class or the college entirely, the length of the course and effective date of withdrawal determine course liability and any refund of paid tuition and fees. Students are liable for payment of tuition and fees up to the effective date of withdrawal. Drops and withdrawals can also impact financial aid. Note: Non-attendance in a class does not constitute official notification of withdrawal, nor does it remove tuition liability.

Course Drop/Withdrawal and Refunds

Students may drop a course during the specified add/drop period via the MyPlattsburgh online registration system. Afterward, students must complete the Course Schedule Adjustment form (PDF file size 41KB) and receive permission to officially withdraw from a course.

For more information, view Course Withdrawal Schedule and Procedures.

Read our College Withdrawal Policy for information regarding the process for personal, medical, or military withdrawals.

Once a drop or withdrawal is processed, the effective date will be established and the student's tuition liability and any applicable refund will be calculated based upon the effective withdrawal date and the schedules below. View SUNY Policy for more information on refunds for tuition and fees.

Students will be refunded 100% of the yearbook fee if the effective date of withdrawal is by Columbus Day weekend during fall semester or Spring Break during spring semester.

Appeals to Change Effective Date

After a withdrawal has been processed and the effective date established, a student may submit a written appeal for removal or adjustment of tuition liability based upon a change of effective withdrawal date. Appeals are warranted under extraordinary and unusual circumstances that are beyond the control of a student, and that prevent a student from dropping or withdrawing from a course via standard procedures within the appropriate deadline for a refund. The student must thoroughly document the circumstances from credible sources. Appeals may also be warranted when a student provides official notification of his/her intent to withdraw to an appropriate campus representative by the relevant deadline and submits documentation from a credible source. Appeals may also be warranted when a student demonstrates that s/he is matriculated at another college during the same term or s/he is enrolled as a new non-matriculated student at SUNY Plattsburgh. 

Send written appeals and supporting documentation to todd.moravec@plattsburgh.edu.
