Late Fee Appeal Process

Manhattan College publishes a firm payment deadline with the first issued bill each semester.


The College will consider an adjustment of late fee charges only in cases where the College has been responsible for a delay in normal processing:

  • If you are receiving scholarships, loans, or other forms of payment from a third party and funds are not forwarded by our deadline, this is not a College responsibility. 
  • Families should consider our deferment option to prevent further late fees.
  • Families may pay the bill in full (including the late fee), then seek reimbursement if the appeal is approved. 
  • Late fee appeals for families filing the FAFSA will only be reviewed if the College received your completed FAFSA by our published deadline of April 15; allowing ample time for the processing of institutional and federal aid. 
  • If you were selected for verification, you must also respond to all requests for documentation in a timely fashion.  

Appeal Petition Process

Appeal petitions must be submitted within 30 days from the late fee assessment date on the account and only after your tuition/fee bill has been paid in full. Please do not submit a petition until the late charges have been applied to your student account.
