Tuition & Fees

State University of New York at Old Westbury prides itself on quality education at an affordable cost. SUNY and Old Westbury recognize that the pandemic has made this a very difficult time for students and parents, therefore, have taken steps to maintain tuition at last year’s level and reduced our fees by nineteen (19) per cent from last Fall.

Tuition and fees are approved by the State University of New York Board of Trustees each year. Students pay tuition and fees for all hours in which they are enrolled. Tuition and other fees are payable by cash, check or money order made payable to SUNY Old Westbury. Payments may also be made using Visa, Mastercard or Discover credit cards and e-checks. Payments can be made online via the Finances page of the ConnectOW Portal.

A fee of $20 will be assessed for each check returned by the bank on which it is drawn. Any student whose check is returned will be required to make all future payments by cash, money order or credit card.

Failure to make payment by the due date may result in late payment fees and holds restricting registration and transcript requests.
