Welcome

Dear Students:

We appreciate your selecting Ramapo College of NJ to enhance your career goals and wish you much success.

Ramapo e-Mail is the official means of communicating to students at Ramapo College. We strongly recommend that you check your Ramapo e-Mail account on a regular basis.

In addition to checking your Ramapo e-Mail account, it is important to log onto the secure real-time Ramapo Self-Service portal (click here) to periodically view your student account. Account balances can change when additional charges, such as a parking fine, or financial aid is reduced. In many instances, students are not aware that they have a balance due on their account. A balance due may hold you up from registering, viewing your grades, getting a transcript, or receiving your diploma.

We look forward to serving you.

Sincerely,

The Bursar’s Staff

Philosophy

Our fiscal responsibility to the College necessitates a proactive approach to the collection of all outstanding indebtedness. By enrolling at Ramapo College, a student is accountable to pay all of the charges incurred for a given term by the published deadline. However, the Bursar’s Office makes every effort to accommodate families experiencing financial difficulties. Please communicate with the Bursar’s Office if there are extenuating circumstances that prevent you from paying your term bill on time.

It is imperative that all students and parents become familiar with our policies and procedures (available on this Website), as well as payment and financial deadlines. You should also familiarize yourself with the functions and policies of the Office of Financial Aid and the Office of Residence Life. The majority of problems that a student or parent encounters can be simply avoided by complying with established policies, procedures, and deadlines.

We trust that you or your child will have a very positive experience here at Ramapo College. If this office can be of assistance, please don’t hesitate to call, write or e-mail your concerns.
