FAQs

  • If you are a resident of New York State, your bill may include two charges for tuition. To remove the Tuition – No Proof of Residency (or Part-Time Tuition – No Residency) charge from your bill, you must obtain and submit a Certificate of Residence from your home county. If you fail to obtain and submit this document prior to the term, or no later than 30 days into the semester, you will be responsible for this additional charge.

  • The Certificate of Residence is valid for one calendar year. Students must complete this requirement annually.

  • The only way to qualify for the in-state rate of tuition and remove the additional No Proof of Residency charge from your bill is to obtain and submit a Certificate of Residence from your home county.

  • Your due date can be found in the upper right corner of your bill. By the bill’s due date, you must:

    • Pay your bill in full
    • Have verifiable financial aid sufficient to cover charges
    • Enroll in the Tuition Payment Plan
  • All students with unsettled charges by the end of the first week of classes are subject to the $50 payment deferral fee.

  • All students who receive Title IV federal financial aid must be regularly attending classes to earn financial aid. Federal financial aid (Pell Grants, SEOG, and Direct Student/Parent Loans) is not fully earned until the student has attended over 60% of classes for the semester.

  • The Department of Education defines attendance in online classes as:

    • Posting in classroom discussion threads
    • Submitting homework assignments
    • Taking online tests
    • Emailing the instructor regarding course content (not classroom policy and procedure inquiries or comments)

    The act of logging in and viewing course content does NOT constitute attendance for federal financial aid purposes!

  • Your financial aid will be recalculated as a percentage of classes attended, and all unearned financial aid will be returned to the Department of Education. If the portion of aid you earn is not sufficient to cover the charges you incur, you will be responsible to pay the uncovered charges out of pocket. A hold will be placed on your records until these charges are paid in full. You will not be able to receive grades, transcripts (unofficial and official), or register for any further classes until your bill is paid in full.

  • Due to the short length of these semesters, we are unable to accept a payment plan. These classes must be paid in full prior to their start.

  • That depends. If the College can directly bill your employer for expenses incurred at Herkimer College, we can show an authorization of this payment and defer payment for the amount that they are sponsoring you for. Students must provide sufficient information for us to defer payment.

    If the employer reimburses the employee, the college will not defer payment. Employee reimbursement is just that, the employee pays for the course and the employer reimburses the student. You must make satisfactory payment arrangements prior to the start of classes.

  • You can track your account and make payments online by logging into Student Online Services.

  • You may set up a payment plan for the fall and spring semesters by utilizing the Tuition Payment Plan. Information regarding this plan will be included with your fall and/or spring bill.
