Debit card numbers are NOT account numbers! Account and routing numbers can be located at the bottom of your checks. If you do not have checks, you may need to inquire with your financial institution.

     
Credit Cards NO

Effective March 13, 2016, you will NO LONGER be able to use a credit or debit card to make payments directly to John Jay College for tuition or fees. As of this date, ONLY cash, check or money order will be accepted for payment at the Bursar's Office, New Building RM. L70.

Credit Cards may still be utilized through a Payment Plan (see below). Students who wish to use a credit card without a payment plan may inquire with their bank/card provider about a cash advance or convenience checks. This is the most effective method of utilizing your credit card.

*Please be advised, cash advance/convenience checks are drawn from your card account and may come with additional costs and/or interest charges*

A Payment Plan is an easy and convenient way to manage your semester bill by providing a low cost option to budget tuition & fees. It is not a loan program- there are no interest or finance charges assessed and there is no credit check.
