Your Payment Deadline

Tuition and fees are typically due after the add/drop deadline. You may select the Deferred Payment plan, which allows you to distribute your required payments over separate installments. Please visit the Office of Bursar's website to see details about payment deadlines and options. 

You can make a tuition payment on the Office of Bursar website, using one of Teachers College's accepted methods of payment: check, money order, cash, or international wire transfer. All payments are made on a semester basis. If you want to see details about payment deadlines as well as important disbursement information, visit the Office of the Bursar website.

Sponsored Students

You may need to coordinate additional documentation to pay your bill, if you are a sponsored international student. If your tuition and fees will be billed to a third party (such as a home government ministry), then you will need to provide a copy of their scholarship award letter. Please contact the Office of the Bursar and request a Third Party Billing Agreement. You must submit this form before your tuition payment deadline, even if your bill will be paid at a later date.
