Deposits, Billing & Payments

Pre-Admissions Deposit

Once you are accepted, the next step is to secure your enrollment by paying the pre-admission and residence hall deposits. The $50 pre-admission deposit and $100 residence hall deposits can easily be paid in Banner Web with a credit or debit card. The student's Cobleskill ID (Banner ID) and PIN are required to log on. Both numbers are mailed to the student upon acceptance to SUNY Cobleskill. Please contact the Admissions Office at (518) 255-5525 if you are having access issues or are unable to find your PIN and/or Cobleskill ID.

If you are unable to pay online, please send a check or money order (payable to "SUNY Cobleskill"), including the student name and ID# on the check memo to:

SUNY Cobleskill Student Financial Services 
106 Suffolk Circle
Cobleskill, NY 12043


When is the deposit due?

For Fall entry, the $50 pre-admission and $100 residence hall deposit ($150 total) is due on May 1st. The pre-admission deposit is fully refundable if a written request to the Office of Admissions is received by May 1st. The residence hall deposit is refundable if written request to the Director of Residential Life is received by July 1. For spring entry, both deposit amounts are due by January 1.


Why do I need to pay a deposit?

The pre-admission and residence hall deposits will secure your status as an incoming student and, if applicable, notify the Residential Life Office of your housing request. Early payment is encouraged and may provide students with earlier access to the next steps in the enrollment process – including course registration and housing preferences.


What if I am experiencing financial hardship and can’t pay my deposit at this time?

If you or your family are experiencing financial hardship, you can complete a financial hardship deposit waiver form.

No applications will be processed until you have submitted your FAFSA to SUNY Cobleskill.

Paying Your Bill

You will receive a bill for each semester of enrollment. E-bill notifications for the Fall semester will be sent in early July. Bills must be paid in full within 30 days. This means that all charges should be covered by loans, grants, scholarships, and/or personal payments (including setting up a payment plan). Failure to pay or have arrangements authorized by the payment due date will result in late fees and a hold on academic records.

Monthly Payment Plan

A convenient 5 month payment plan is available each semester after bills become available. There is a $50 set up fee but no interest is charged. Payment plans are available in Banner Web under the “Billing and Payments” section of the Student Services Menu.


All questions concerning the SUNY Cobleskill MPP should be directed to the Student Financial Services office at 518-255-5539.

Late Payments

A $40 fee for holding your registration will be charged to all bills not paid by the due date. A $30 late fee will be charged each month on any remaining balance.
