Payment of Fees

All tuition and fees are due at the time of registration. No student will be permitted to attend classes unless officially registered. Issuance of the diploma as well as transcripts of academic records will be withheld from any degree candidate who has not paid in full all amounts due for tuition and fees.

The School reserves the right to limit class size, change instructors, or cancel courses in cases of insufficient registration or in certain other situations. If course cancellations occur, students will be notified to adjust their academic schedules or will be given a complete refund.

New York Medical College offers a monthly payment plan, which provides a convenient alternative to lump-sum semester payments. Upon receipt of a $40 non-refundable semester application fee from the student, the Bursar establishes an account. Please Note: Payment Plan is only offered during the Fall and Spring semesters and you must be registered for at least 3 credits. If a student utilizes the Payment Plan, he/she may not apply for financial aid. The Payment Plan may not be used for maintenance of matriculation.

There is no deferment of tuition and fees for any reason other than a delay in processing of a certified bank loan application through the Financial Aid Office. If the loan is not approved for any reason, interest and late fees will be charged from the date of registration. The interest rate charged on outstanding balances will be the same as the Federal Stafford interest rate on the day the tuition payment was due. A late penalty fee of $100.00 will be charged to all accounts subject to interest charges.

Any student who registers for courses and does not pay for them in full, will have their student account balance placed with a Collection Agency. A 30% collection fee will be assessed to the outstanding balance.

Checks drawn on foreign banks will be accepted and credited to the student’s account as follows:

  1. Checks drawn in other than U.S. dollars will be credited to the student account in the amounts realized in U.S. dollars and credited to the College’s account by the depository bank.
  2. All special charges and costs relating to the handling of checks drawn on a foreign account will be deducted from the proceeds of the check.
  3. The student tuition account will not be credited for the tuition payment until notification has been received by the College’s depository bank of receipt of funds. Interest and late fees will be applicable during this period.
  4. Refunds to students for overpayment of tuition and fees for the applicable semester will not be made until notification has been received that the check has cleared and the funds are available for use. The time required for the clearance of checks drawn on foreign banks may exceed 30 days.

 

No exceptions to the regular tuition policy will be made in those instances where a student receives reimbursement in whole or part from an employer or other party for tuition and fees. The student is required to pay tuition and fees in the same manner as all other students.

A charge of $25 will be assessed for the first check returned by the bank as unpaid. All subsequent unpaid checks will result in a charge of $50 plus interest. Unpaid checks will be regarded as “not received” for purposes of determining applicability of interest and late fee charges.

 

Refunds for Withdrawal

If a student terminates his/her registration by an official leave of absence or withdrawal, tuition will be charged for the semester in accordance with the date written notice of such intent is received by the Office of the University Registrar. (Please note that telephone calls are not an acceptable notice of intent.)

Generally, there is a 100% refund during the first week of classes. This amount decreases over the next four weeks. Because refunds are date-driven, please see below for specific refund information.

Please note that the tuition refund policy for Physical Therapy and Speech-Language Pathology differs from the general refund policy. The $500 deposit required for the Physical Therapy, Speech-Language Pathology, and Doctor of Public Health in Epidemiology programs is non-refundable. The tuition refund tables are as follows:

Fall and Spring Semesters:

% of Full Tuition Refund for Withdrawal from the MPH and DrPH programs

During the first week of class = 100%
During the second week of class = 75%
During the third week of class = 50%

NOTE: No tuition refund will be made if a student is dismissed from New York Medical College. In such cases, tuition for the entire semester is payable in full.

Fees are not refundable.

A tuition refund will not be made until all approved documentation has been received by the Bursar’s Office.

Students who receive federal student aid are subject to both the general New York Medical College refund policy and a separate Federal Title IV Funds Refund Policy.

 

Refund Checks to Students

All checks representing the net proceeds of loans made to students under the Stafford Loan, or Grad Plus loan programs by commercial banks are made payable to both the student and the College. Government regulations require that all such checks, after endorsement, be deposited by the College. The College will apply the amount so deposited to the student’s tuition and fees account. Other receipts will also be deposited to the student’s tuition and fees account.

Refunds to students from loans or other receipts will be made if the amount received is in excess of the tuition and fees charged for the year, plus any amounts owed for prior periods and any possible late fees and interest charges. The refund will be available in the Bursar’s Office two weeks after receipt of funds with appropriate endorsements.

 

Tuition Discount/Benefits – Public Health

Regular full-time or regular part-time non-union employees with at least one year of College service are eligible for tuition benefits for the MPH and DrPH degree programs. If in full-time employment status, tuition reimbursement is 100% for up to eighteen credits a year (maximum 6 credits a semester). For those who are in part-time employment status, tuition reimbursement will be on a pro-rata basis. NYMC Employees pay all fees except for the Entrance Fee. Contact the NYMC Human Resources Office (594-4560) for information on benefits.

Prior to EACH semester’s registration, NYMC employees obtain and complete the Application for Graduate School Tuition Remission form (HR-67). This form needs to be approved by the College’s Human Resources Department (Administration Building, Room 212) in order to verify current employment status. The approved form should be submitted to the Bursar’s Office at the time of registration.

Employees of NYMC who work at an affiliated institution follow the same procedure. Employees who are 1199 union members are covered for educational benefits under the union plan. An official copy of grades received and a receipt verifying that tuition has been paid must be submitted to the union before reimbursement can be made.

Spouses and dependent children of regular full-time or regular part-time employees with at least one year of College service are eligible for the same benefits as NYMC employees (see above). Spouses and dependents pay all fees. Prior to EACH semester’s registration, employees obtain and complete the Application for Graduate School Tuition Remission form (HR-67) available from the College’s Human Resources Department (Administration Building, Room 212) or the affiliation office. All approved forms should then be submitted to the Bursar’s Office at the time of registration.

Full time employees of an affiliated hospital, not paid through NYMC, are entitled to a 10% reduction in tuition for as many as three courses per semester (fees are not discounted). A letter from a supervisor on affiliated hospital letterhead stating fulltime status must be submitted at the time of registration. This letter should be submitted to the Registrar’s Office and the Bursar’s Office at the time of registration.

The following are eligible for a tuition discount of 50%: Primary Care Preceptors for the School of Medicine and Clinical Site Supervisors for the Physical Therapy and Speech-Language Pathology programs. A memo from the appropriate NYMC office citing eligibility must be submitted at every registration. Alumni of the School of Health Sciences and Practice are also eligible for a 50% discount for course audits.

A 50% tuition discount is available for online Master of Public Health and graduate certificates for active duty members of the Uniformed Services (military and U.S. Public Health Service). Students who are veterans and eligible for the GI Bill tuition benefit are encouraged to use this benefit which typically covers their full tuition in the School of Health Sciences and Practice. In such cases no further discount applies.
