Phone-in registration is available only to part-time non-matriculated students with payment by MasterCard, Visa or American Express at the time of registration. All new students must submit a Certificate of Resident to the Bursar’s Office within three (3) days or be charged non-resident (double) tuition. Immunization records may also be required.

The county of legal residence for a NEW YORK STATE resident attending a community college contributes to the College a portion of the College’s cost for providing services to the student. The basis for assessing counties for this funding is the Certificate of Residence.

To qualify for in-state tuition, a student must submit a Certificate of Residence annually. Failure to submit a Certificate of Residence will result in the student being billed out-of-state tuition charges. Residents of Columbia and Greene Counties can show proof of residency at the Bursar’s Office to complete the process for a Certificate of Residence, but in some instances may be required to go to their County Treasurer’s Office.

To qualify as a New York State resident, a student must currently live in New York State and have lived within the state continuously for a period of at least one year. A student must also be a U.S. citizen, a permanent resident or have valid immigrant status.

New York State residents who have lived in more than one county during the past six months must submit a Certificate of Residence for each county in which they have resided.

Please contact the Bursar’s Office at ext. 3338 for special procedures or any questions you may have.


C-GCC participates in a variety of federal, state and institutionally funded financial aid programs. All full and part time students are encouraged to apply. For the Fall and Spring semesters, financial aid forms must be filed online at http://www.fafsa.gov. Obtain student and parent personal identification numbers (PINs) to sign electronically at http://www.pin.ed.gov. The FAFSA as well as the CGCC Financial Aid Form (found in the forms section of our website or available at the Financial Aid Office), should be filed by March 1 for the Fall term. Eligibility for financial aid will be determined when the aid office has received all required documents from the student. No tuition deferments will be granted unless the student has completed the entire financial aid process. Please note that student loans cannot be processed without first filing for financial aid.

Changing your schedule, i.e. dropping, withdrawing, or repeating courses could affect your financial aid eligibility. Please consult the financial aid section of the college catalog for more detailed financial aid information.

C-GCC Refund Policy

Each student is responsible for completing the appropriate paperwork to be eligible for a refund. Tuition and fees are 100% refundable prior to the first day of classes only. For more information, please see our Refund Policy.
