When do I pay?
Payments are made on a per-semester basis and are due with your academic tuition.
Is Financial Aid available?
Yes. Students must file the *FAFSA form, which is available on October 1 of each year for the following fall semester; be sure to file early!
When answering the FAFSA housing plan questions, do select “On Campus.” This response allows Financial Aid Services to estimate your correct Cost of Attendance (COA).
Please be advised that CUNY colleges do not prepackage undergraduate students with federal student loans; students are required to request these loans by following a specific process.
Visit the Financial Aid Services site for more information. Note: this does not guarantee you housing with Baruch College.
All degree seeking students, regardless of citizenship status, should also seek external scholarships from reliable search engines such as the ones discussed in this article.
*Undocumented and international students should not complete the FAFSA.
Is there a payment plan?
You may pay your bill in monthly installments through the Sallie Mae Tuition Pay plan, which has an application fee. To sign up for this program, go to tuitionpay.com/cuny. Please visit the Baruch bursar's website for more information.
Can I use my NYS 529 College Savings Plan to pay for housing?
Yes. You will need to contact your financial institution to have the check made out to "Baruch College." Please contact the Bursar's Office for more information.
