Below are descriptions of the five most common Non-Tuition Related Fees.

The amount of the charge depends on the course. Most course fees are $75.00. The Dean of each School or the Director of Athletics determines the courses that will be assessed a course fee.

The Nursing Program assesses a course fee for each lecture course and lab fee for each lab course. In addition, an ATI Testing Fee and a one-time Criminal Background Check Fee will also be assessed on courses specified in the Course Catalog.

Credit Card Service Fee

This is a service fee that is charged by the credit card processor to the cardholder at the time of payment. The service fee revenue is not shared by the college.

Note: A service fee is not charged if payment is made by electronic debiting of a checking or savings account (ACH).

Finance Charge

This is a supplemental charge that will be assessed against the account of any student with an outstanding Account Balance. This Finance Charge shall be calculated and assessed for each month that the balance remains $100.00 or greater. There will be a grace period of 25 days without finance charge on new charges. Each monthly Finance Charge will be calculated by multiplying 1.5% by the amount of the outstanding Account Balance. Finance Charges will not be assessed for students who participate in the Ramapo Tuition Payment Plan and have kept their account current. If a student has been terminated from the plan, he/she will be assessed a Finance Charge commencing with the next billing cycle.

Late Payment Fee

Failure to pay according to published payment deadlines may result in the assessment of a Late Payment Fee for each missed payment deadline. A student could be assessed multiple late fees per term if more than one deadline is missed.

Schedule Reinstatement Fee

An administrative fee will be assessed to reinstate a deregistered schedule after the Add/Drop period is over.
