Paying for College: Business Office

Business Office

Welcome to Cayuga Community College. At the Business Office, we provide services such as student billing, payments, refunds, direct deposit, 1098T tax documents, scholarships, and certificate of residency. Our hours of operation are 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday for the fall and spring semesters and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the summer and intersession. Most importantly, if you have a question about any of our services, please contact either the Auburn or Fulton Business Office.

 

Ensure Your Information is Accurate

Make sure your address and telephone number are correct. Cayuga Community College uses this information to contact you about important items. You can update this information under the Personal Information tab in your MyCayuga account. Please enter the type of phone number that you are using (for example, choose cell for your cell phone number).

 

Tuition Bill

Tuition bills are no longer mailed. They will be emailed to your Cayuga Community College email account. You can sign up to receive your bill through text message to your cell phone. This is in addition to the emailed bill.

 

Sign Up for Text Messaging of the Student Tuition Bill

In your MyCayuga/Banner account:

  • Click the STUDENT menu tab and then STUDENT ACCOUNTS > STUDENT BILLING (NELNET Quickpay)
  • Click the SELECT A TERM dropdown menu and choose your desired semester
  • Choose MAKE A PAYMENT/VIEW YOUR BILL/SIGN UP FOR DIRECT DEPOSIT/SET UP BILLING SMS TEXT NOTIFICATION. This will bring the student into NELNET Quickpay.
  • Select USER PREFERENCES on the left side. In the middle section, there is an SMS option – this is for texting.
  • Enter your cell phone number with no dashes, including area code, and enter your cell phone carrier.
  • Check the box SMS under the notification section that says “When a bill arrives.” Save your changes.
  • You are responsible to update your cell phone number if the information changes.

 

How Do I Pay My Bill?

A student can pay online by e-check, credit card, Nelnet payment plan, set up an ‘Authorize Payer,’ or use financial aid to cover the tuition bill.

 

Paying Online with Credit Card or e-Check

In Your MyCayuga/Banner Account:

  • Click the STUDENT menu tab and then STUDENT ACCOUNTS > STUDENT BILLING (NELNET Quickpay)
  • Click the SELECT A TERM dropdown menu and choose your desired semester
  • Choose Make A Payment/View Your Bill/Sign up for Direct Deposit/Set up Billing SMS Text notification
  • Follow the on screen instructions for type of payment chosen. Payments must be in full. Partial payments are not allowed (except for Authorized Payer).

 

Setting up a Nelnet Payment Plan for the Fall and Spring Semester Only

The payment plan is set up to automatically deduct monthly payments out of a checking/savings or credit card account. This option is available for the fall and spring semesters only. Nelnet automatically deducts equal tuition payments (covering tuition and fees only) from your checking or savings account, or charges them to your MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card. For details, call the College Business Office at 315-255-1743, ext. 2450, or contact Nelnet directly at 800-609-8056.

In Your MyCayuga/Banner Account:

  • Click the STUDENT menu tab and then Student Accounts > Student Billing (NELNET Quickpay)
  • Click the SELECT A TERM dropdown menu and choose your desired semester
  • Click on the e-Cashier logo to set up a payment plan – follow screen instructions

Nelnet charges a $25 non-refundable fee per semester to participate. Nelnet is not a loan program. No debt is incurred, there is no credit search, and no interest or finance charges are assessed by Nelnet on the unpaid balance.

 

Using Financial Aid to Cover Tuition Bill and Fees

If you have enough financial aid to cover your tuition bill and have either a negative or zero balance on your account, you MUST confirm your charges. In your MyCayuga/Banner account:

  • Click the STUDENT menu tab and then STUDENT ACCOUNTS > STUDENT BILLING (NELNET Quickpay)
  • Click the SELECT A TERM dropdown menu and choose your desired semester
  • Click the Confirm button. This will accept your charges. The screen will show a confirmation message.

It is very important that you confirm your charges. Failure to do so by your bill due date could result in de-registration.
