Important Note Regarding Cash Transactions

The College is required by Federal law to file a Form 8300 to the IRS for any student who pays more than $10,000 in cash (either lump sum or series of payments) within a 12-month period. The Office of Student Accounts will send a written or electronic statement to each person named on a Form 8300 by January 31 of the subsequent calendar year.

  • Checks and money orders should be made payable to RAMAPO COLLEGE. Include the Student ID Number on the front of the check or money order to insure proper crediting to the student’s account. The Student ID Number is nine characters long, beginning with a capitol letter “R”.
  • If you choose to pay after regular business hours, you can leave your check in the night deposit box outside the Office of Student Accounts, first-floor D-wing. DO NOT LEAVE CASH
  • If a bank returns a check for insufficient funds, the check will be redeposited and a $15 charge will be assessed. If the check is returned a second time as unpayable, a charge of $40 will be assessed and personal check payment privileges at the College will be revoked. This constitutes nonpayment of charges. Payment must then be made by cash, bank check, or money order within five working days of notice. Failure to correct the delinquency will result in deregistration.
  • Stopping payment of a check as a means of dropping/withdrawing from classes does not relieve the student of registration charges.

The College reserves the right to change costs, dates and procedures at its discretion.
