Five Easy Ways to Pay Your Tuition & Fees


To pay online using Electronic Check, login to CUNYfirst, click on “Self Service “then “Student Center” and under the Finance section, click on “Make a Payment.”

Electronic Check: a fast and simple payment method that can be made from regular U.S. checking or savings accounts. You will need your bank’s routing number and your account number, which is available on the bottom of your check or from your financial institution. There are no service charge fees when paying with an electronic check.

In Person

Paying by cash, money orders or certified checks made payable to Bronx Community College: These forms of payment are only accepted at the Bursar’s Office, Colston Hall, Main lobby. The following are not accepted: personal checks, company checks, paychecks, third-party checks.

Paying with a Voucher: Students whose tuition is paid by an outside agency, a union or job must bring the voucher to the Bursar’s Office with any additional payment required. Third-party vouchers are applicable only when the college is authorized to directly bill the company.

Financial Aid

For students with anticipated aid that shows in their CUNYfirst account and covers all tuition and fees, no action is necessary. Financial Aid will automatically pay your tuition and fees charges.

For students with accepted financial aid that is not sufficient to cover tuition charges, students must pay the remaining tuition balance by the payment due dates on their bill. Students may enroll in the tuition payment plan, make a payment online or pay by mail or in person at the Bursar’s Office to avoid being dropped from classes.

Please contact the Financial Aid Office if you have any questions regarding financial aid eligibility or if you need assistance in filing your FAFSA application. The Financial Aid Office is located in Colston Hall [CO], Room 504 and at 718-289-5700.
