Bursar - Payment Plan

Acceptable payment arrangements include written or electronic confirmation of any combination of the following:

  • Enrollment in the Time Payment Plan (fall and spring semesters only; not available for summer balances)
  • Financial Aid
  • Third party funding such as VESID, WIA, H1B, Veterans' Deferrals or private scholarships.

Students can make payment by check or credit card online through the Enterprise System. Those students who have enough financial aid credits on their bills to result in a zero or credit balance can confirm their attendance online using Banner in lieu of returning their billing statement.

Students who have registered for classes and who then decide not to attend SUNY Polytechnic Institute must formally withdraw through the Registrar's Office to avoid being billed/charged for tuition and fees. Failure to attend does not constitute an official withdrawal. Those students who register for classes after the billing due date are required to submit payment or valid deferral at the time of registration.

Required Disclosures

Please take notice, if payment is not received for obligations due to SUNY Poly, this agency is required to pursue other collection alternatives. Pursuant to Chapter 55 of the Laws of 1992, State agencies may refer past-due accounts to a private collection agency, the New York State Attorney General's Office, or the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. In addition, State agencies are required to charge interest on outstanding debt at current corporate underpayment rate, compounded daily, on accounts considered more than 30 days past due. Chapter 55 allows State agencies to charge a fee on dishonored checks or like instruments.
In addition, the New York State Attorney General's Office and SUNY Central Administration have reached an agreement requiring the addition of any interest and collection fees. Students are liable for interest, late fees, a collection fee of up to 22%, and other penalties on past due debt. Collection fees will be added to new past due debts transferred, from this campus, to the Attorney General or private collection agencies.

These terms and rates may be modified, without prior notice, as required by legislative action or Board of Trustees requirements.
