Undergraduate Catalog 2021-2022

Student Status

Full-Time and Part-Time

Undergraduate students are considered part-time if they are registered for 11 equated credits or less. A student is considered full-time if registered for 12 or more equated credits in a semester. Students applying for TAP should see the requirements for TAP eligibility on the Office of Financial Aid's website.

Part-time undergraduate matriculated students are charged the tuition rate on a per equated credit basis (1-11 equated credits).

Undergraduate full-time students are charged tuition on a per semester basis; undergraduate non-resident full-time students are charged tuition on a per equated credit basis.

Summer session and non-degree students are billed on a per equated credit basis regardless of the number of equated credits for which they register. There are no maximum tuition limits for summer session or non-degree students. Non-degree students (as of June 1, 1992) pay a higher rate than matriculated students.

Senior Citizens

Individuals satisfying the New York City/State residency requirements and who are 60 years of age or older (as of the first day of the semester or session) are permitted to enroll in undergraduate courses on a space-available basis. Proof of age is required by the College; the following forms of proof of age are acceptable: Medicare card, driver’s license, or birth certificate.

Administrative fee: A non-refundable administrative fee of $65 per semester or session is charged senior citizens who are enrolling on an audit basis. The application fee and Student Activity Fee are not charged. Senior citizens as students are responsible for the Consolidated Service Fee and any other fees they might incur.

Undergraduate courses: For senior citizens enrolled in undergraduate courses, tuition will not be charged provided credit is not given for the course(s). Senior citizens are enrolled on an audit basis and will receive an AUD grade. Senior citizens who wish to enroll for credit must pay the applicable tuition and fees, including the application fee and the Student Activity Fee. Senior citizens cannot be registered on both an audit basis (no tuition) and a credits basis (tuition charged) during the same semester.

Graduate courses: Senior citizens are not permitted to register free of tuition or fee for graduate-level courses. Senior citizens may register for graduate courses on a space-available basis and are charged the graduate tuition rate regardless. No exception is made for matriculated or non-matriculated status. The Student Activity Fee and application fee must also be paid.
