Payment Options

Payment Options

Fall semester bills are available online July 1 (or the first business day if the 1st falls on a weekend); spring bills are available online in November. Both are given a due date well before classes begin. Payment is due on this date for the students to be pre-registered and avoid a $50 late registration fee and cancellation of their course registration.

Temporary deferment of payment may be granted at bill-processing time for students who have proof of financial aid or scholarships that will cover the billed amounts. Balances can be paid by cash, check, MasterCard, VISA, Discover, or wire transfer. As financial payments are received by the college, they will first be applied to any outstanding balance. Refunds will be issued only when the bill is paid in full. In a continuing effort to assist our customers, Alfred State also offers monthly payment plan options. Information regarding payment plan options is available online at

Students Receiving Title IV aid need to know: Students need to authorize the use of Title IV financial aid (federal grants and loans) to pay non-institutional charges (optional fees and vehicle registration). If you choose not to provide this authorization, you will be responsible for paying your optional fees even if you have a credit balance from Title IV financial aid. You will be asked your preference for this authorization during bill processing at

Note: Parent Borrowers (PLUS) must complete a separate authorization in order for PLUS loan funds to pay non-institutional charges.
