Spring 2023 Payment Plan

Ramapo College offers two monthly payment plan options for the Spring semester beginning November 16, 2022, a five-month plan beginning in December and a four-month plan in January. The five-month plan is open from November 16, 2022 and will close on January 8, 2022.  Our four month plan will open on January 1, 2023 and will close on March 14, 2023.

The Ramapo Tuition Payment Plan (RTPP) requires a non-refundable $60 set-up fee and a down payment at the time of enrollment (20% for the five-month and 25% for the four-month plan). Students must enroll in the plan prior to the appropriate posted payment deadline for the semester. Enrollment in the payment plan must be done online by signing into Ramapo Self Service. The terms of the plan are as follows:

  • Enrollment and the down payment for the plan is due by the appropriate payment deadline, with additional payments due on the 15th of each month thereafter. You must pay your down payment along with your non-refundable $60 set-up fee at the time of enrollment. Students who do not enroll by the payment deadline may be subject to a $200 late fee and/or deregistration from their courses
  • Enrollment in the plan beyond the due date for the down payment requires payment of any missed installments at the time of enrollment. As an example, enrollment on February 22 requires payment of the down payment, the February 15th installment, and the non-refundable $60 enrollment fee at time of enrollment
  • Past due balances from previous semesters of $500 or greater must be paid prior to a student being eligible to enroll in the plan. The College reserves the right to deny enrollment in the plan to students based on past payment history
  • The College does not send monthly paper statements for upcoming installments. Billing reminders are sent via email to the student’s Ramapo College email address only. It is the student’s responsibility to make monthly installment payments by the 15th of each month. A late fee of $35 will be assessed for each late payment
  • Information about your individual payment plan and upcoming installment dates are available on the Payment Plans tab of the Account Info/Pay Bill section of Ramapo Self Service
  • Plan participants may elect to have their monthly installments withdrawn automatically from the checking or savings account (automatic payments). Please be aware, incurring additional charges or reductions to pending financial aid on your student account will result in automatically increased monthly installments
  • Student account balances for use in monthly payment plans are reduced by memo’d and authorized financial aid posted to your student account. Incurring additional charges (tuition, fees, room, board, etc.) or reductions in your financial aid will automatically result in an increase to your plan amount. Notification will be sent to your Ramapo College email account of any changes to your plan balance and subsequent increase of your monthly payments. Students are responsible for any and all of these changes to their payment plans
  • Questions can be directed to the Office of the Student Accounts at (201) 684-7495, or by emailing us at

Employer Sponsored Tuition Assistance Programs

Any student whose employer is providing payment for semester charges, must present written documentation on company letterhead to the Office of Student Accounts prior to or at the time of registration to be considered for deferment. The agreement must contain the student’s name, social security number, semester for which the payment will be made, and the terms of the agreement. If there are any charges that the employer will NOT pay, such as lab fee, parking, etc., the student is responsible to make payment for any unqualified charges by the payment deadline (see deadlines link below). The College will NOT honor any type of agreement that contains conditions that delays or precludes payment. An example of such a stipulation is, “remittance will not be made until grades are received.” Under these circumstances, it will be the responsibility of the student to pay the College in-full and seek reimbursement from the employer. The College will send an invoice to the company. If the employer does not remit payment by the due date, a hold flag will be placed on the student’s account. It then becomes the student’s responsible to make payment in-full before the hold flag will be removed. It is important to present authorized documentation and provide payment of unqualified charges as per the above instructions to avoid deregistration. Direct your questions to the Office of Student Accounts at (201) 684-7495.

Authorized Deferments

Veteran’s Deferment

Any person, who is eligible and has applied for veterans’ benefits under any of the programs administered by the Veterans’ Administration offering education and training assistance allowances, may defer payment of tuition and fees (but not room and board fees). Once the Financial Aid Office verifies a student’s eligibility, the student must proceed to the Office of Student Accounts to sign a special deferred payment agreement. The agreement will allow the veteran to defer payment on a monthly basis. If a veteran does not sign an agreement, the student will be subject to deregistration. Any delays with receipt of the veteran’s monthly allowance, does not exempt the veteran from making payment in accordance with the deferral. Deferments are not given for a veteran’s first semester at Ramapo, unless circumstances are discussed with the Veteran’s Administrator. Documents should be brought to  the Financial Aid Office for verification. If you have any questions, you may contact the Financial Aid Office at (201) 684-7549.

Winter Deferment

Ramapo College provides the option of utilizing excess financial aid from the Spring semester to cover Winter tuition and fees. The aid/loan must be posted to the student’s account for Spring and must be enough to cover both the Spring and Winter charges. The deferment can only be used for tuition and fee costs, and will not be processed until the student is registered. In order to participate, you must contact the Office of Student Accounts to verify eligibility. The deferment form must be submitted and any amount not covered by financial aid/loans must be paid by the payment deadline. Please click here for the Winter Deferment Form (pdf).  Please print out the form and return it to the Office of Student Accounts for processing.

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

Department of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR)

DVR students may defer payment for the current semester once the Office of Student Accounts has received verification of their eligibility from the State Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. Direct questions to Chanel Carter in the Office of Student Accounts at (201) 684-7173.
