Tuition and Fees

2018 - 2019 Tuition and Fees

We estimate the cost of books and supplies to be approximately $735 per semester. This estimate can vary, however, depending on where and how books and supplies are purchased (for example, prices may be different when purchasing books and supplies online; purchasing used books; renting books, etc). The cost of books and supplies can also vary based on program enrollment. Some programs necessitate the purchase of additional and program-specific supplies (for example, students enrolled in the Nursing program may need to purchase clinical supplies and instruments).

Payment Plans

The Bursar's Office offers deferred payment arrangements to eligible Veteran's Administration (VA) students. The VA student must submit the following to the Bursar's Office:

  • VA Letter of Eligibility - Chapter 33
  • VA Authorization and Certification - Chapter 31
  • ROTC and other Veteran programs paperwork

VA students will be allowed to register for an upcoming semester while owing a balance, if that balance is covered by the Veteran's Administration and the Bursar's Office has the necessary paperwork. Failure to make payment arrangements by the scheduled due date will result in a "Bursar Hold" being placed on the account to prevent future registrations and block the release of official transcripts. If a student anticipates a balance after Veteran's payments are taken into consideration, the student should consider Tuition Management Services (TMS). Veterans should also be filing a FAFSA form each year, as students may be eligible for Federal Grants and loans.

Veterans Benefits Payments NEW

Students who are GI Bill and VR&E beneficiaries (Chapter 33 and Chapter 31 beneficiaries) may attend a course of education or training for up to 90 days from the date the beneficiary provides a certificate of eligibility, or valid VAF 28-1905 to the Veteran Certifying Officer in the Registrar's Office. This allows a student to attend the course until Veterans Administration (VA) provides payment to the institution. Molloy College will not impose a penalty, or require the beneficiary to borrow additional funds to cover tuition and fees due to late payments from VA.

A State Approving Agency (SAA), or the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) when acting in the role of the SAA, can disapprove certain courses of education. The VA can grant a waiver to these requirements.

More information will be available on as new laws are put into effect concerning:

  • Additional provisions from the VA regarding student participation in courses pending receipt of educational or training assistance from VA.
  • College policies for students who are Chapter 31 or Chapter 33 beneficiaries concerning any additional measures needed to stay enrolled in a course pending receipt of educational or training assistance from the VA.

Tuition Assistance

Active Duty Service Members Tuition Assistance Policies

The Department of Defense requires non-directory, personally identifiable information that is protected by FERPA be reported as a condition of receiving tuition assistance. Service members must sign an authorization for Molloy to release to the Department of Defense and Service branches information on:

  • Course enrollment
  • Course withdrawal
  • Course cancellation
  • Course completion or failure
  • Grades
  • Verification of degree completion
  • Billing information

*This FERPA Release Consent Form must be authorized prior to having tuition assistance approved.

All military tuition assistance must be requested and approved prior to the start date of the course. You, the service member, will be solely responsible for all tuition costs if not approved for the funding.

Students are encouraged to verify course acceptance by Community College of the Air Force (Air Force only) or other programs, with the installation education advisor before enrolling or requesting military tuition assistance.

If you have any questions or need assistance, contact Monica Morello, Student Accounts Representative, at or call 516.323.4102. The Bursar's Office is in the Wilbur Arts Center, second floor, Room W-234.

Molloy College Military Tuition Assistance (TA) Refund Policy

Military Tuition Assistance (TA) is awarded to a student under the assumption that the student will attend school for the entire period for which the assistance is awarded. When a student withdraws, the student may no longer be eligible for the full amount of TA funds originally awarded.

To comply with the new Department of Defense Policy, Molloy College, will return any unearned TA funds on a prorated basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which funds were provided. TA funds are earned proportionally during an enrollment period, with unearned funds returned based upon when a student stops attending. These funds are returned to the military Service branch.

Instances when a Service member stops attending due to military service obligation, the educational institution will work with the affected Service member to identify solutions that will not result in student debt for the returned portion.

Schedule for Returning Unearned Tuition Assistance Funds

Molloy College returns any unearned tuition assistance (TA) funds on a proportional basis through at least the 60% portion of the period for which the funds were provided to the military Service Branch.
