Proceeds originating from financial aid in excess of your account charges will be refunded beginning on Friday, February 03, 2023. For a faster more secure means of receiving refunds, students should sign up for eRefund through the myTC Portal. For students who do not indicate a refund preference, refunds will be mailed to the permanent or local address on file. Please verify your address on the TC Services tab via the  myTC Portal. Refunds that are delivered by mail will be delayed.
The last date to pay all tuition-related charges for Spring Term 2023 is Friday, February 03, 2023. Payments MUST be received by this date, whether you receive a statement (schedule/bill) or not. If you are a new registrant or make changes to an existing registration resulting in increased costs (after the payment deadline(s)), you are required to make full payment of the difference when the changes are made.

If you are a new student and planning to reside in Teachers College housing, you are required to pay your rent in full for Spring Term 2023 by Friday, February 03, 2023.
