Pre-Admission Deposits - Undergraduate Program
January 30, 1985
This policy item applies to:
An advance deposit of up to $150 shall be required from each new student admitted to any state-operated campus. This deposit is payable upon tentative or conditional acceptance into an undergraduate program and is applicable against charges incurred by the depositor when he/she commences attendance at the University.
I. Which Advance Deposit Must be Paid
1. For terms which begin between June 1 and November 30, payment is due not later than the preceding May 1, if the student is notified of acceptance on or before April 1. If the student is notified after April 1, payment is due 30 days after notification of acceptance.
2. For students who are admitted into terms which begin between December 1 and May 31, payment is due not later than the preceding November 1, if the student is notified of acceptance on or before October 1. If the student is notified after October 1, payment is due 30 days after notification of acceptance.
3. Whenever the pre-admission deposit due date as established in 1 or 2 above is later than the registration date, the pre-admission deposit is due and payable before registration.
C. Campuses which choose to require a deposit prior to the dates indicated in section A above must allow the applicant not less than 30 days after notification of acceptance for making the pre-admission deposit.
Pre-admission deposits will be deposited in the local depository and will be forwarded to the State University of New York Income Fund in accordance with the requirements of the NYS Finance Law (Revenue Classification 12811 - Tuition Advance Deposits).
When a student's fees and charges are supported by a state or federal program, and when advance payment as required by this schedule would cause undue hardship to the student, the campus president may in his/her discretion allow waiver of the advance payment until receipt of the payment by the student from the state or federal authorities.
