Description of ESF Fees
The assessment of fees is necessary to provide students with services and benefits that cannot be funded by other means. Some fees are usage-based. Examples include course fees, late add/drop fees, transportation fees, and other similar fees. Other fees are mandatory and are not usage-based. Examples include the College Fee, and Student Services, Technology, Health/Counseling, and Transcripts fees. The fees listed here may not be final and they are subject to change.
Students matriculated in an "exclusively online program" that has been registered as such with the New York State Department of Education (NYSED), are assessed only certain fees. These fee differentials apply only to those enrolled "exclusively online programs" as designated by the NYSED. All other remote-learning students will be assessed, and be responsible for payment of, all standard mandatory fees.
