Payment Plan

If you are interested in setting up a payment plan for a specific course(s), you must contact Student Financial Services (SFS) at SFS will send you an email that includes information on the specifics of the Payment Plan, the email will include the payment plan link as well as a registration link.

In order to complete your registration, you must:

  • Use the Payment Plan link to sign up for a payment plan
    • Your down payment and enrollment fee must be automatically withdrawn before moving on to the next step.
  • Use the registration link to register for the course.

Your payments will be taken out automatically based on the schedule you have chosen, either the 5th or 20th of each month. When you register for the payment plan you will choose which payment plan you want based on what is available at that time. The course is a set price; however, earlier enrollment will allow students more payments at a lower cost, late enrollment will be a larger amount upfront, and fewer higher payments.

3rd Party Funding

You must first predetermine your eligibility with the 3rd party funding agency (e.g. Dutchess One Stop or ACCES-VR) and meet whatever requirements they have for selection. Afterwards, please contact the Office of Workforce Development and Continuing Education at or (845) 431-8900. We will discuss the details and expectations of the course(s) you are interested in. If both parties agree the course meets the needs of the student, our office will provide appropriate documentation directly to the agencies, to start the funding approval process. Once funding is approved, we will reach out to you with a special link to register.

Check or Money Order

You must come to campus to the Registrar and Student Financial Service Offices.
