By registering for classes, a student assumes a legal obligation to pay tuition, fees and room and board charges (if applicable). If a balance is not paid by the due date, a hold will be placed on the account, which will prevent further registration, or release of transcripts. If the account is submitted to a collection agency, the student will be responsible for all collection costs and legal fees incurred.
Communication with Students
The email system available through the my.alfred.edu website is Alfred University’s official form of communication with all students. Visit the ITS account activation web page to activate your network account. You may contact Student Accounts anytime via email.

The cost for linen service is $18 per week and it includes one pillow, one pillowcase, one top sheet, one bottom sheet and one blanket.)
Students who require summer housing please contact the Office of Residence Life (607.871.2186) for information on how to secure housing. This MUST be done at least four (4) weeks prior to your first class. You will be notified of your housing assignment shortly before the start of the summer session you are attending. All campus housing locations are smoke-free areas. Smoking is only allowed 25' from any building on campus. Animals are NOT allowed in any building on campus, including the residence halls.
All tuition and fees must be paid in full prior to the first day of class.
Alfred University has a paperless electronic billing and payment site, hosted by “CASHNet.” Students can log into BannerWeb to access the billing and payment site. (New students need to activate their AU email account in order to receive billing notification.) The link to connect to CASHNet is on the Student Services page. If you are not the primary payer of your student bill, please log in to give access to the person that needs to see and pay your bill.
For Parents and Authorized Users - Once you are listed as an Authorized User you will receive the user name and password needed to access the CASHNet System by the email designated by your student. Once you have a user ID and password, log on to https://commerce.cashnet.com/alfredpay to see the new bill. If you already have access, but have forgotten your password, you can reset it yourself by clicking the link on the homepage, or contact your student to reset the password.
The CASHNet website has payment links for a secure and convenient way to pay the account balance for no additional cost if paying directly from your checking or savings account (this process is called ACH). A $25 returned payment charge will be assessed for each occurrence of a returned payment.
Please note that an additional 18% per annum late fee will be charged on all past due balances. A hold will be placed on the student account, which will prevent registration changes and the release of transcripts.
Arrangements in lieu of full payment including tuition remission, employer reimbursement or financial aid must be complete prior to the first day of class. (Tuition remission forms must be submitted at least two weeks before the class starts.)
In most cases, the availability of financial aid for summer school is limited and not the same as during the academic year. Students should speak with a Financial Aid staff member well in advance of classes regarding their summer aid eligibility. An appointment is usually not necessary. Most questions can be answered by Financial Aid staff on a walk-in basis or through a phone call. For further information please call the Office of Student Financial Aid at 607.871.2159.

Three-month Payment Plan
A three-month interest-free payment plan is available for summer tuition accounts. The payment plan, offered through AU, runs April through June for Summer Term I courses, and May through July for Summer Term II courses. The payment plan will be available in April 2017 through the CASHNet eCommerce System. To sign up for the summer payment plan and inquire about the enrollment fee or anything else regarding the payment plan, please contact the Student Accounts Office at 607.871.2123, or visit them at the Student Service Center in Seidlin Hall.
If you are entitled to this educational benefit through your employer, you are required to provide the AU Student Service Center with written verification of the terms of your entitlements. Students should be prepared to sign a promissory note to cover their balance and are responsible for employer billing.
Tuition Remission - Employee Benefit
Tuition remission benefits must be applied for through the AU Human Resources Office. Forms must be submitted at least two weeks prior to the first class. Approved applications are processed as financial aid. Late applications and processing may require a signed promissory note at the Student Service Center. Note: tuition remission is not available for summer independent studies or other summer courses taught by a faculty member to only one student.
Students with Past Due Balances
Registration will be denied to applicants with past due balances from previous semesters and/or to those students who have not received financial clearance for the current semester.
Auditing a Course
Some summer courses may be available for auditing on a very limited basis. Individuals wishing to audit summer courses must first find out if the course they wish to take is open to auditors and then get the approval of the instructor.
The instructor must sign the audit form. (In the case of art courses, the Dean of the School of Art and Design must also approve and sign the form.) If the student has an advisor, the advisor must sign also. Registering to audit a course cannot be done on-line. A paper audit form must be completed, approved as indicated above, and submitted to the Student Service Center. Auditors will be charged 50% of the regular course tuition. For further information about auditing a summer course, please contact the Student Service Center at 607.871.2123 or via email.
