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.

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

All schools that qualify the Tuition Assistance Program are required to have a Tuition Assistance Refund Policy. Molloy College's Tuition Assistance Refund Policy is described below.

Military Tuition Assistance (TA) benefits are paid to the school by the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, and Coast Guard on behalf of eligible military student recipients. The student is awarded the TA benefit under the assumption that the student will participate throughout the entire length of the period. If a student ceases attendance during an enrollment period, in accordance with the Department of Defense (DoD) MOU, the College must return unearned funds based on the date on which the student stopped attending. The unearned TA funds must be returned on a proportional basis through at least the 60 percent portion of the period for which the funds were provided. Performing this calculation may result in the student owing a balance to the College. The College will handle the removal or collection of this balance based upon the cause of the leaving event. In instances for which a student ceases enrollment due to a military service obligation, the College will work with the affected service member to identify solutions that will not result in a student debt for the returned portion. The treatment of balances caused by other leaving events are described within this policy.

Calculating Unearned Funds

The College will calculate the amount of unearned Tuition Assistance funds from the date of the student's last participation in the course (which determines the number of days completed) as documented by the Office of the Registrar.

Tuition Assistance eligibility is determined based on the following formula, which calculates the Percent of TA earned: Number of days completed Total days scheduled

Scenario (for example): if a student enrolled in the fall term that is 104 calendar days in length and participates for 45 days, the percent earned is 43% (45/104=.43). Therefore, the College will return to the TA program 57% of Tuition Assistance paid to the College. During the first week of fall term, 100% of Tuition Assistance will be returned in compliance with the military add/drop policy. On day 63 of the fall term, the student has completed 60% of the course and the DoD does not require the College to return funding to the TA program.

The College does not penalize military students for early withdrawal if a reservist or active duty enlisted service member is called to active duty that take him/her away from campus.  The student may withdraw from courses without academic penalties.  Students withdrawing from all course in a given terms, should submit a Withdrawal Leave Form with the Registrar's Office.

Withdrawals from the College for military students receiving other types of financial aid are handled by the federal and state policies for all students.  Remaining financial obligations to the college, caused by charges incurred during the term in which the student stopped attending, will be reviewed upon receipt of proper documentation.

Students may request a grade of "Incomplete" depending on the program, how close the student is to completing the course and subject to the instructor's approval and depending on whether the student is near completion of the course.  Courses in the majors such as education, nursing, allied health and internships may need to be repeated in a later term.

As with Return of Title IV funds due to withdrawal, Molloy College completes Return of TA calculations within 30 days of when the school has determined that a student has stopped attending.  Any unearned TA funds are returned to the Department of Education with 45 days.  The calculation is based on the last date of attendance as reported by the professors.
