The money order should be made payable to JOHN JAY COLLEGE and include the eight digit EMPLID #.

Certified Bank Check
A certified check is written by a bank account holder, drawn on the account and guaranteed by the bank. The bank verifies that the signature is genuine and that the check writer has enough money for the transaction. The certified bank check (cashier's check, teller check) should be made payable to JOHN JAY COLLEGE and include the eight digit EMPLID #.

Personal Check
A personal check is a form of payment that is drawn against an individual's checking account. Unlike a money order or certified bank check, there is no guarantee to the recipient (John Jay College) that the payment is valid. Funds are not drawn from the checking account immediately. Instead, the check must be presented, processed and accepted. This process can take anywhere from 3-10 business days. This should be made payable to JOHN JAY COLLEGE and include the eight digit EMPLID #.

!! Returned checks will be subject to a $20.00 reprocessing fee. Students will then be required to make all subsequent payments by cash or certified check. Past due balances paid with a personal check will delay hold clearing for ten (10) business days !!

Partial payments are accepted leading up to the term posted due date, by which the entire bill must be paid in full. Partial payments are NOT considered a payment plan and DO NOT prevent course cancellation, accrual of late fees and/or the placement of a Bursar hold.

Payment Plan (CUNYfirst-QuikPay)
The payment plan is easy, convenient and low cost option to budget tuition & fees. It is not a loan program. There is no interest assessed and there is no credit check. The only charge is a one-time enrollment fee (per semester, $40.00 Checking Account Plan; $95 Credit Card Plan)

Failure to attend class, merely giving notice to the instructor or stopping payment on a check is not considered an official drop or withdrawal.
