www.oswego.edu/administration/student_accounts

All students attending Oswego must pay tuition and the College Fee. In addition, all students must pay the Student Association Fee assessed by the Student Government. This fee covers organization dues, subscription to student publications including the yearbook, and admissions to special lectures, concerts, sports events, and other student activities. The Health, Athletic, and Technology Fees are mandatory. The remaining charges shown on the fee schedule depend upon the student’s choice of living accommodations, class status, and choice of courses. Certain laboratory and studio courses, and some courses with field trips, etc. require an additional instruction fee.

The College has a policy requiring all full-time students to have health insurance. To meet the needs of uninsured students a health insurance policy is available. This policy is designed to meet the needs of students at a reasonable price and will supplement services provided by the Mary Walker Health Center. All full-time students will see the charge for this insurance reflected on their bill. This charge can be removed from the student’s account by returning a completed waiver form and copy of insurance card to the Auxiliary Services Office, 507 Culkin Hall.

The cost of books and supplies, recreation, travel and other variable or discretionary expenses are not billed; however, such expenses must be considered by students in planning a realistic budget. Tuition and fee schedule may also be viewed on the Student Accounts website, click on Tuition and Fees.

Tuition

^Top

Tuition for New York state residents, matriculating on a full-time basis, is $5,570.00 per year. Tuition for non-New York State residents, matriculated, full-time undergraduate students is $14,820.00 per year. The New York State Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) and Supplemental Tuition Programs (SUSTA) are available for qualified students to offset some or all tuition charges. See Financial Aid for application process.

Tuition for undergraduate New York State residents, attending on a part-time basis is $232.00 per credit hour. The rate for non-New York State residents is $618.00 per credit hour. In addition to the above, a College Fee of $0.85 per credit hour is assessed.

Tuition for non-matriculating students is dependent on the level of the course taken. All non-matriculating students who take 12 credit hours or more are charged the full-time resident or nonresident semester rate for the Fall and Spring term. During the summer term there is no tuition cap. Use the per credit hour rate to determine the tuition charge. Tuition and fee schedule may also be viewed on the Student Accounts web page, click on Tuition and Fees.

New York State Residency

Physical presence in New York State does not constitute legal residence in the State. A college student cannot gain resident status unless it can be clearly established that the student’s previous domicile has been abandoned and a new one established in New York for a minimum period of 12 months prior to the start of the semester. Individuals do not meet the residency requirement if domiciled in New York State for the sole purpose of attending college. The domicile of a minor is, unless emancipated, that of the minor’s parents. Proof of emancipation must include evidence of financial independence. Applications for resident status are available in the Student Accounts Office or on the Student Accounts web page. Applications must be submitted to the Student Accounts Office before the last day to register for classes in the semester for which the student is applying. Failure to provide requested documentation to support resident status, upon request from the Student Accounts Office, will result in a denial of the application. For more information please refer to the Student Accounts web page, click on NYS Residency.

Payment of tuition, fees, room and board are due and payable prior to the first day of scheduled classes, unless covered by an authorized deferment. Authorized deferments include Tuition Assistance Awards; State University Supplemental Tuition Assistant awards, and other awards as authorized by the Chief Administrative Officer of the College or said officer’s designee. All costs and fees are those currently in effect and are subject to change prior to registration.

The Student Accounts Office directs all financial correspondence, statements, billings and receipts to students.

Notice Regarding Non-Payment of Obligations

If payment is not received for obligations due SUNY Oswego, this agency is required to pursue other collection alternatives pursuant to Chapter 55 of the Laws of State Attorney General’s Office, or the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance. In addition, state agencies are authorized to charge interest on the outstanding debt at the current corporate underpayment rate minus four percent (4%) set by the Commissioner of Taxation and Finance, compounded daily, on accounts considered past due. Chapter 55 allows state agencies to charge a fee on dishonored checks or like instruments.

In addition, the New York State Attorney General’s Office and SUNY Central Administration have reached an agreement which requires adding interest and collection fees on past due debt. Students are liable for interest, late fees, a collection fee of up to 22%, and other penalties on past due debt. Collection fees will be added to new past due debts transferred from this campus to the Attorney General or private collection agencies.

These terms and rates may be modified, without prior notice, as required by Legislative action or Board of Trustees’ action.

State Debt Collection Laws Affecting All Past Due Debts Owed To The State Of New York

^Top

Certain state laws that became effective on January 1, 1993 have granted additional enforcement powers to New York State agencies for collection of non-tax debts. These laws have augmented those codes and regulations that previously existed within the State University of New York. If a student has a current or outstanding debt with the University, the student is strongly urged to settle the matter immediately. Important Provisions include the following:

Interest Or Penalty On Overdue Non-Tax Debt – State Finance Law § 18

State agencies are authorized to assess interest or late payment penalty charges on overdue debts.

Collection Fee - State Finance Law § 18

State agencies or their representatives may charge collection fees to cover the estimated costs of processing, handling and collecting delinquent debts. The amount can be as much as 22% of the outstanding debt.

Authority to Hold Transcripts and Deny Registration – Section 302.1 (j) of Chapter V, Title 8 of the Official Compilation of Codes, Rules and Regulations

No student shall receive credit or other official recognition for work completed satisfactorily, or be allowed to register, until all tuition, fees and all other charges authorized by State University have been paid or University student loan obligations have been satisfied.

Referral of the Debt to the Tax Department – State Tax Law § 171-f

State agencies are authorized to certify to the Department of Taxation and Finance that past due legally enforceable debts should be offset against any tax refunds, contracts or other State payments.

Returned Check Charge – State Finance Law § 19

State agencies are authorized to charge a returned check fee when a check is dishonored.

If a student wishes to avoid these measures, the student MUST make arrangements to resolve any outstanding debts as soon as possible. For questions regarding debt, please contact the Student Accounts Office at 315-312-2225.

Refund Policy

^Top

Any registered student who decides not to return must officially withdraw from the College before the beginning of the semester to avoid any financial liability. Failure to do so in a timely manner may result in a financial obligation to the State of New York. Consult the Office of the Attorney General or the State Education Law, paragraph 302.2, regarding this matter.

According to State University Administrative Policies the semester begins with the first day of classes listed in the Official College Calendar. Students who are given permission to cancel their registration shall be liable for payment of tuition in accordance with the following schedule:

Tuition Liability Schedule

(Begins 1st day of term)

Calendar Days Week # % of Tuition Liability
  1-7 1st week 0%
  8-14 2nd week 30%
  15-21 3rd week 50%
  22-27 4th week 70%
  28 on 5th week 100%

Fee Liability: 100% beginning the first day of the term.

Students Not Receiving Title IV funding

Fees are non-refundable as of the first day of classes. Students must withdraw before the start of the semester to avoid liability.

Room rent is prorated after the first week of school on a quarterly basis. Contact Residence Life and Housing Office for details. Charges for board are refundable on a prorated basis for the number of weeks left in the quarter for which the student has paid. Refund details are available from the Student Accounts Office.

Students with Federal Title IV funding

Students receiving Title IV financial aid award payments and who withdraw from the College shall be obligated to return a portion of the award. Oswego determines the percentage of earned aid by taking the total number of calendar days a student is registered divided by the total number of calendar days in the semester to determine the percentage of aid the student will receive. If the calculated percentage is greater than 60% the student will receive 100% or the aid that was approved and the student was authorized to receive. Fees are nonrefundable as of the first day of classes.

FINANCIAL AID OFFICE

The Financial Aid Office at Oswego State believes that the talents, hopes and ambitions of our citizens are among the most valuable resources this nation possesses. With this thought in mind, the office continues to promote scholarship, loan, and employment opportunities for its qualified, deserving students who need assistance to attend college. The goal is to make it possible for students who would normally be deprived of a college education because of inadequate funds to attend SUNY Oswego by using strategies that access all financial aid programs. In so doing, it is essential that we adhere to federal and state legislative requirements, as well as looking at all other resources that might be available to the students through scholarship opportunities, to ensure an equitable distribution of funds.

The Financial Aid Office finds that cooperation with the student and the family is imperative. Occasionally there are situations that affect a student’s ability to pay because of changes in their personal or family’s circumstances. These situations include dropping a class, possible withdrawal and changes in income through loss of employment, death, or separation. Students are encouraged to notify our office if there are any concerns or changes in a family’s situation.

Professional and courteous staff are available to discuss issues in person, by phone, or E-mail. Information on the types of aid available, how to apply and the opportunity to check your personal awards and applications is available on the Financial Aid web page. Students are encouraged to continue their learning opportunities by promoting good fiscal sense and awareness of their financial aid status and responsibilities.

As college costs rise, more and more people are exploring the availability of financial aid. Oswego students who are New York State residents realize substantial savings by attending a state university college. In addition, there are many programs of direct financial assistance available in the form of grants, scholarships, loans and employment. Over 85% of Oswego students receive some financial aid.

The following information is provided as a general reference to financial aid at Oswego and is based on statutes, regulations and policies current at the time these materials were prepared for publication. These descriptions are, however, subject to change and there may be changes that affect you. We strongly recommend you review the Financial Aid Office website, www.oswego.edu/financial, for additional information. Please contact the Financial Aid Office for the most current information. 

Applying for Financial Aid

^Top

Applicants for Financial Aid at Oswego need to file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), listing Oswego, federal code number 002848, as a school authorized to receive the information. Students should apply online at www.fafsa.ed.gov.  Students must apply each academic year. We highly recommend that all students complete the FAFSA. As a result of filing the FAFSA, students will receive the results of their application to review and instructions on how to make any necessary changes. Students should review the FAFSA results for accuracy and make any appropriate changes. 

If the Financial Aid Office needs additional information from students and their family, they will be notified and told the necessary information and documents to submit.

Students should keep copies of the completed FAFSA, all tax forms and all correspondence and documentation used in completing the FAFSA in case corrections are needed or verification of information is required. 

Financial Aid Award Process

^Top

All financial aid is awarded in a fair and equitable manner in accordance with all Federal, State and College regulations and guidelines.

The Financial Aid Office will begin sending award letters to prospective students beginning on or about March 15. We will begin sending letters to continuing students on or about April 1. The award letter will indicate all aid the student is eligible for and outline how to accept certain types of aid. It is important to follow any instructions on the award letter in a timely manner. Oswego always has more students needing funds than there is money available. Awards that are not accepted in a timely fashion, as defined in the award notice, are canceled and offered to other students. Consideration for discretionary funds is given to our neediest students and those who apply by March 1.

All applicants will be considered for the Federal Pell Grant and the Federal Direct Stafford Loan. Students who have filed the FAFSA by March 1 (November 15 for spring admissions) will also receive priority consideration for Federal Work Study, Perkins Loans, and Supplemental Educational Opportunity Grants. If tax information is not going to be available by March 1, applicants should complete the FAFSA with estimated information. If applicants use estimated information, they will need to provide actual information as soon as it is available. New York State residents will be given the opportunity to complete the electronic TAP Application for New York’s Tuition Assistance Program (TAP) when completing the FAFSA. Oswego’s TAP code is 0935.
 
As part of the financial aid award letter, students will receive instructions on how to obtain information about all programs they have been awarded, the conditions of all awards, cost of attendance information and other information necessary for them to make the best decisions and choices.

If accepting a Federal Direct Stafford Loan for the first time, student will receive information on how to complete the electronic Master Promissory Note (eMPN) and loan entrance counseling. These instructions will be mailed to students beginning in June before their first semester. This process should be completed as soon as possible so there is time for the loan to be approved before the college bill is due.

For New York State residents, student TAP awards will likely be estimated by Oswego on the award letter. The New York State Higher Education Assistance Corporation will begin to process TAP applications each year after the New York State budget has been signed. Award notices will be mailed directly to the student.

Verification

About thirty percent of all applicants will be selected for verification. If selected, students will receive a Verification Worksheet and a request for copies of income related documentation. All aid processing will be held up until this information is received. A student’s eligibility for assistance can be changed by the verification process. Students may be asked to document their citizenship and/or Selective Service registration status.

Formal withdrawal, drop or failure to complete the term

Students who have federal financial aid and withdraw, drop hours or stop attending classes during the term may have their awards adjusted and the appropriate amounts returned to the programs according to the federal redistribution formula in effect. We closely follow the Federal Return of Title IV funds calculations and return aid to the programs as required. All students considering changes to their enrollment status, should contact the Financial Aid Office  before doing so.

Statement of Educational Purpose

Recipients of federal financial aid must be matriculated and are required to sign a Statement of Educational Purpose on the FAFSA. The content of the current statement is:
All of the information provided by me or any other person on this form is true and complete to the best of my knowledge. I understand that this application is being filed jointly by all signatories. If asked by an authorized official, I agree to give proof of the information that I have given on this form. I realize that this proof may include a copy of my U.S. or state income tax return. I also realize that if I do not give proof when asked, the student may be denied aid.

I certify that I will use any Federal Title IV, HEA funds I receive during the award year covered by this application solely for expenses related to my attendance at the institution of higher education that determined or certified my eligibility for those funds.

I understand that I may not receive any Federal Title IV, HEA funds if I owe an overpayment on any Title IV educational grant or loan or am in default on a Title IV educational loan unless I have made satisfactory arrangements to repay or otherwise resolve the overpayment or default. I also understand that I must notify my school if I do owe an overpayment or am in default.

Transfer Students

Students who have attended a post secondary institution prior to attending Oswego will have their loan history reviewed through the National Student Loan Data Service to assure the College does not allow a student to exceed the annual and aggregate student borrowing limits.

Consortium Arrangements

Students wishing to receive financial aid for courses taken at or through another campus must file a Consortium Agreement (available from the Financial Aid Office) with a completed Course Approval Form from Academic Affairs in addition to meeting all other eligibility criteria. Consortia are not usually available for summer study.  Students will be required to provide proof of course completion and final grades.

Study Abroad

Students may be eligible for funding while attending an approved study abroad program. Contact the Financial Aid Office for details.

Repeated Courses for Federal Financial Aid

Students are allowed to receive Federal Title IV aid to repeat a course once if they have previously received a passing grade in the course.

Courses must apply to program of study 

Courses that do not satisfy a requirement for the students academic program do not count toward the semester credit hour enrollment for financial aid purposes.

Satisfactory Academic Progress

Students receiving federal and/or state aid are required to be in good academic standing and making satisfactory progress toward their degrees as defined below.  New York State Pursuit of Program information can be obtained from the Student Accounts Accounts Office.  Federal guidelines are defined below. 

Guidelines for Federal Satisfactory Academic Progress

Students must meet the College’s academic standards for satisfactory academic progress and good standing as defined in the section “College Standards and Policies “  published in this catalog. Students are considered to be in good standing and making satisfactory progress toward the degree for Federal Title IV aid if they are permitted to continue enrollment at the College based on academic guidelines defined in that section.

If a student fails to meet the College’s academic standards, they are considered “Academically Disqualified”. This disqualification determination and notification by the College is also considered determination and notification that a student is ineligible for continued Federal Title IV aid from any of the Title IV programs which include Federal Pell Grant, Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (SEOG),  Federal Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant, Federal Work Study, Federal Perkins Loan and/or Federal Direct Stafford and PLUS loans. 

Grade Point Average

Students receiving assistance from Federal Title IV programs (Pell Grant, Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant (SEOG), Federal Work Study, Federal Perkins Loan and/or Federal Stafford and PLUS loans) must maintain the minimum grade point average required for matriculated students based on their cumulative registered credit hours as defined in the section “College Standards and Policies  published in this catalog. Depending on their initial eligibility criteria, students may need to maintain a 3.25 cumulative GPA to continue to receive the Federal TEACH grant.

Maximum Timeframe

Students receiving assistance from any Federal Title IV programs identified above may not receive financial aid to attempt more than 150% of the necessary timeframe for program completion.  The College allows students to enroll for up to 12 fulltime semesters, or 150% of the expected 8 semesters required to successfully complete a program of study. Part-time students do not have a maximum number of semesters to complete a program, but are subject to the the 150% of program length attempted hours. For most students, Federal Title IV aid cannot be received for more than 183 attempted credit hours toward degree completion.

Student receive warnings from the College if it appears the student will have difficulty completing the program prior to exceeding the maximum timeframe. If at some point the student is deemed mathematically unable to complete their current program in the maximum timeframe, they will be determined ineligible for Federal Title IV aid.

Students who lose eligibility for Federal Title IV aid are eligible to appeal the determination.  See the “Mitigating Circumstances” section below.

Mitigating Circumstances

If a student fails to meet the College’s Satisfactory Academic Progress requirements, they will be notified with instructions regarding the process to petition the appropriate Academic Dean for reinstatement and to have the academic standards temporarily waived. The student will receive directions from the appropriate Academic Dean on how to pursue this appeal at the time the student is determined to be academically disqualified. The student will need to document the reason for not maintaining satisfactory progress and explain the circumstances that have changed to allow future success. If a student is allowed to return to the College and receive Federal Title IV aid, the student will be required to regain Satisfactory Academic Progress or successfully pursue a plan agreed to with the appropriate Academic Dean. Failure to regain satisfactory progress or successfully complete the agreed-to plan will result in a determination that the student is not making Satisfactory Academic Progress in subsequent terms.

 Transfer Credits

Only courses accepted for transfer from a previous school that are applicable to the students current program of study will be used in the maximum timeframe calculation as both attempted and completed hours.

Frequency of Review

The College reviews a student’s academic progress at the end of each semester.

It is designed to provide supplemental financial aid to residence-eligible New York City students enrolled as full-time matriculated in degree-granting institutions of higher education. The amount of each award ($100-$650) is based on financial need as indicated by the student’s Pell Grant index and the cost of education. Application is made to any of the contact agencies mentioned above (ARIC, ASPIRA, or N.Y.U.L.) in the summer proceeding each academic year.

Eligible clients may receive services including but not limited to counseling and guidance, evaluation of vocational potential, physical and mental restoration services, transportation, placement assistance and instruction and training including that given at institutions of higher education.

The Office of Vocational Rehabilitation will consider college training for clients when an appropriate specified vocational goal requiring this level of training has been established through the counseling and planning process between the eligible disabled individual and his vocational rehabilitation counselor. The training may involve full- or part-time study at the baccalaureate level leading to a degree or certificate; graduate training is usually not provided. Training costs at institutions of higher education may be paid through the vocational rehabilitation program only after efforts have been made to secure grant assistance to cover these costs in whole or in part from other sources.

OVR policy establishes a maximum payment toward tuition for a client in any one academic year. In some cases, clients are required to share the expenses of college training according to the general OVR economic need policy.
