Tuition Payment Options
Generally, payment in full is due at registration. Payment can be made by check or money order.
A deferred payment plan (available for the fall and spring semesters only) allows students to pay tuition in installments: at least one-fourth of the tuition is paid at registration, and the balance is divided into three equal installments payable over the next three months. Students are responsible for making installment payments directly to the student financial services office located in Peggy R. Williams Center, by the due dates. A $200 service fee will be charged for every month an account remains unpaid after the last installment is due. No service fees are charged if the account is paid in full within the negotiated plan deadlines.
Some employers provide their employees with tuition assistance for college study. Check with your human resources office. If your employer provides tuition benefits, obtain a tuition benefit form from your personnel office, fill it out, and get all the necessary signatures. If you are employed at Ithaca College and wish to apply for tuition remission benefits, please refer to the educational benefits brochure available in the Office of Human Resources, for deadlines.
Eligible Ithaca College employees, spouses, and dependent children under age 25 may use tuition remission benefits for courses taken for credit or for audited courses. Tuition remission benefits are not applicable to special course charges such as performance study fees. Further, during the summer sessions, tuition remission benefits cannot be used for independent studies, tutorials, internships, performance study instruction, or any other type of individualized study.
Cooperating teachers may use a tuition waiver to enroll in classroom and individualized courses. However, certain restrictions apply, and additional fees, such as the performance study fee, are the responsibility of the cooperating teacher.
