Pre-Enrollment Deposit and Refund Policy

Each new student is required to pay an advance tuition deposit of $100 and an additional $200 deposit when housing is requested. Fall deposits, which are applied against charges incurred by the student in the first semester, are due by May 1. Requests for tuition deposit refunds must be received by May 1 or 30 days after the offer of admission, whichever is later. No tuition deposts will be refunded once classes have begun.

Housing deposit refunds must be requested no less than 15 days before the start of the semester. Spring deposits are due by the date indicated in the student's letter of admission. Deposit amounts are current as of February 2009 and are subject to change without notice. Requests for refunds should be sent to:

Student Accounts/Refund Unit
261 Administration Building
Stony Brook University
Stony Brook, NY
11794-1351.

To ensure timeliness and receipt of the deposit refund request, the University suggests letters be sent by certified mail, return receipt requested.
