Future payment plans will now include any prior balances as part of the payment plan total:

  • When completing the Payment Plan Budget Worksheet please include any prior balances so they can be incorporated into your initial payment plan total. 

  • If you do not include your prior balance in the initial payment plan total, your payment plan balance will be recalculated (after the enrollment closing date) to include any prior balances.  

  • Prior balances will be divided among your remaining installments.

  • Please keep in mind, if your financial aid award has been removed for a prior semester, this balance will be included in your payment plan.

  • Any payment plan payments will be applied to the earliest balance first.

  • For example, if you are enrolled in a Fall 2022 payment plan and also have an outstanding Spring 2022 balance, any payment plan payments will first be applied to your Spring 2022 balance until it is fully covered, subsequent payments will then be applied to your Fall 2022 balance.

  • If you have a past due balance (that has not been transferred to a collections agency) you may enroll in a Fall 2022 payment plan, even if you are not enrolled.

  • Please note:  In this case, your full balance must be paid before any holds can be removed.

  • You WILL NOT be eligible for a payment plan for your prior balance if:

  • your balance has been transferred to a collections agency (you must submit payment to the appropriate collections agency).

  • you have been dismissed from the college (you may submit a one-time eCheck payment on your CUNYfirst account).

  • you have successfully filed for graduation prior to Fall 2022.

Please Note: Credit/Debit card payments can only be processed through the Nelnet Payment Plan.
