When students register or pre-register for study, they incur an obligation for tuition and fee charges and (for students who reside in New York State) a Certificate of Residence.

Information regarding certificates of residency is located under Admissions Tuition and Fees section. It is necessary that in addition to paying tuition charges, all students claiming residency in New York State file a Certificate of Residence or pay out-of-state (double) tuition charges.

Senior Citizens Auditing Policy

Auditing allows an individual to participate in all aspects of a course without receiving a final grade.  Individuals age 60 and over may enroll in a class at the college and not pay tuition. Seniors may register to audit classes during the college’s registration period prior to the start of each semester. However, some courses may be restricted due to space availability.

Payment and Collection

College tuition, fees, and all costs associated with books are the responsibility of the student. Bills must be paid by the term’s payment due date in order to avoid cancellation of the class registration. Tuition and fee charges can be met in several ways:

  1. The College accepts Master Card, Visa, Discover, and American Express.  Payment may be made online via the MYFM portal, by mail, or in person with cash, check, or money order.  Payment may also be made over the phone by calling:  (518) 736-3622 (Extensions 8601, 8602 or 8604).
  2. Deferral of tuition and fee charges against official financial aid award sources (PELL, TAP, SEOG, scholarships etc.). To defer, students must have an official award notification on file with the College.
  3. If part or all of the account will be paid by a sponsor, a signed sponsorship form (ex. letter, voucher, authorization) from your sponsor guarantying the payment needs to be provided to the College.
  4. The College offers a monthly payment plan through Nelnet (https://ss.fmcc.edu/PowerCampusSelfService/Home) which allows students to pay some of their educational expenses monthly with no interest or late charges. There is a $25.00 enrollment fee per semester.
  5. Any combination of the above (if financial aid or student loan are not sufficient to cover all charges, the balance must be paid by the student.)

Failure to Meet Tuition and Fee Obligations

Please be advised that missing outcomes, incompletes, or failure to complete coursework successfully may result in a change to your financial aid eligibility and result in an outstanding balance that is owed to the college.

A late penalty fee will be added to accounts that have outstanding balances after the payment due date. Delinquent accounts are forwarded to a collection agency for collection. The student is responsible for all collection and attorney fees associated with the collection of the debt, including collection costs which will be at a minimum of 25 percent of the debt plus any and all attorney and court fees.

Adjustment in Tuition and Fee Charges

Any student who registers for a semester is responsible for payment of all tuition and fees for that semester regardless of the student’s attendance or non-attendance. Tuition and fee charges will be reduced or eliminated only if the student notifies, in writing, the appropriate office listed below according to the schedule below. Please note that adjustment periods differ for fall/spring and winter/summer sessions.

To withdraw from all of your courses – Student Development Center, Visual Arts and Communications Building.

To withdraw from some of your courses – Registrar’s Office, Visual Arts and Communications Building.

1. In any semester if you withdraw or drop in writing, through the Student Development Center or the Registrar, before the first day of the College semester you are released from your obligation to pay tuition and fees for the courses you have dropped. If you have paid your tuition, it will be refunded to you several weeks after the semester begins.

2. During Fall and Spring semesters only: If you withdraw in writing, through the Student Development Center or the Registrar, after the first week of the College semester (beginning on the first day of the semester), you pay tuition for any courses for which you are still registered. You must pay all fees for courses dropped and any courses retained.
