Policies & Resources

See below for information about Office of Student Accounts & Bursar Services policies, procedures and resources.
  • Non-Payment Penalties

    Tuition and fees are due before the start of each term, by the established payment due date.

    Late Fees

    If your account becomes past due, a late payment penalty charge of 1% per month will be assessed on subsequent bills.

    Account Restrictions

    If your account becomes past due, a hold will be placed on your account preventing future registration, access to academic transcripts and receiving a diploma at commencement. Ultimately, upon separation from Manhattan College, any unpaid balance will be referred to a third party for collection efforts.

    Returned Checks

    If a check or e-check payment posted to the student account is returned by the bank because of insufficient funds or a closed account, a returned check fee will be charged to the student account. Upon notification of the returned item, payment for the amount of the returned check and the fee must be paid immediately by cash, credit card, certified bank check or money order. After receiving a returned check, personal checks will no longer be accepted as a payment option.

  • Tuition Liability Policies

    Students who wish to withdraw from the College must complete the required Manhattan College Withdrawal Form (obtained from their Dean's office). The date used for refund/liability purposes will be the date that the form was completed, not the last date of attendance. An adjustment to tuition may occur when a student withdraws from school or is withdrawn by the College, depending on the date of the withdrawal (please see the liability chart below). 

    A Return to Title IV aid calculation must be conducted for students who withdraw or take a leave of absence and receive federal aid and/or loans. This may cause a reduction in federal financial aid and/or loans, resulting in a balance due. 

    Tuition Liability

    Refund of tuition charges and program fee only will be made in accordance with the following schedule. There is no adjustment for mandatory fees after classes begin.

  • Tuition Insurance Plan

    Manhattan College has partnered with GradGuard to offer  an optional insurance plan, Tuition Protection Plan by Allianz Global Assistance, which helps protect you in cases of accident or illness. Your participation in Tuition Protection Plan is completely voluntary; it represents a contract between you and the Allianz Global Assistance. Manhattan College does not benefit from your participation.  

    Enrollment Instructions

    Should you decide to participate in the Tuition Protection Plan, you can learn more and obtain a quote by calling 877-232-0765 or go to www.gradguard.com/manhattan. 

    Sign-up is required prior to the first day of classes. For the 2017-18 year, August 28 is the first day of classes in the fall and January 16 is the first day of classes in the spring.

    What the Plan Covers

    The coverage complements our refund policy-providing reimbursement for eligible tuition payments, room and board fees and other nonrefundable expenses if you withdraw for a covered illness or injury at any time during the plan period.

  • Credit Balance Refunds

    Refunds due from credit balances cannot be processed until the completion of the add/drop period each semester.  The turnaround timeframe for refund availability is 10-15 business days. Refunds are mailed to the student’s permanent home address on file.  

    Refund Review Process

    Credit balances resulting from outside scholarships, federal financial aid, and private loans are subject to regulated review and approval by Financial Aid Administration and Student Accounts and Bursar Services administrators. Institutional and TAP awards are not refundable.

    The student is the legal responsible party for their tuition account. Therefore, refund checks are made payable to the student. In some limited instances, refunds of credit balances on student accounts will be issued to a separate party; this occurs when:

    • PLUS Loan credit balances are refunded to the parent who borrowed the funds.
    • Outside scholarships returned to granting agency (in cases where we are unable to apply the funds as designated by the granting agency).
    • Credit balances are due to a payment from a third party where the payment was unable to be applied in accordance with the third party’s instructions.
