Registration Cancellation

General Protocols:

Students registered for courses must meet tuition & fee payment criteria by the dates listed below for registration cancellation or they will be dropped from all registered courses.

To avoid registration cancellation, one or more of the following criteria must be met prior to the relevant registration cancellation date:

• Full payment of tuition/fees by cash, check, credit card or ACH bank draft

• Enrollment in the William Paterson tuition payment plan

• Partial payment that reduces the payable student account balance to the designated threshold or less. (Note—partial payment will save registration but will not prevent assessment of additional fees if account later becomes past due)

• Financial aid application in process with the University (only if FA eligibility is confirmed and sufficient enough to lower current balance below designated thresholds)

• Payment in the form of scholarships, third party payments or tuition waivers reflected on the student’s account that reduces the payable student account balance to the designated threshold or less

All students, including those not subject to registration cancellation, who have not made satisfactory billing arrangements (i.e., paid in full or enrollment in a payment plan) by the due dates, will be subject to the following:

• Their Pioneer cards will be frozen and they will not be able to access the funds on those cards until the bill is resolved.

• A late fee of $200 will be charged for balances greater than the designated threshold

• A block will be placed on registrations for future semesters until the bill is resolved.

Designated Thresholds:

Student payable balances are subject to registration cancellation based on multiple factors, including a minimum threshold amount, below which cancellation will not occur unless other factors overriding factors exist. The designated thresholds are:

Level Credits Thresholds
UG/FT 12 or more 2,050
UG/PT 11 or more 1,050
GR/FT 9 or more 2,050
GR/PT 8 or less 1,050
