The campus spending account is designed to give students an account to manage college expenses like books, supplies and special meals. CSA funds save time and hassle and can be spent at the Campus Stores, vending machines, dining facilities and with our campus partners. When you pay your bill, we recommend a CSA amount, but that amount can be completely deleted from your bill, or you can add to it. The minimum amount that can be added to the card is $10. The student photo ID card is swiped like a debit card when you make a purchase using CSA funds. As purchases are made, the account balance is reduced by that amount.
It is mandatory for all students to live on campus unless they are waived due to special circumstances. Examples of special circumstances include residing with a parent or legal guardian and commuting fewer than 60 miles one way, married, age 24 or older, or have children. Students may also live off campus if they meet the academic eligibility criteria. A housing waiver application must be completed for the Residential Life Office to consider off-campus housing.
New York State law requires anyone born on or after 1/1/57 and taking six credit hours or more to provide the Health Center proof of two measles, one mumps, and one rubella immunization administered after their first birthday.
Public Health Law 2167 requires students to sign a meningitis response form. A meningitis immunization is not required; however, if you have received one, please place the type and date of immunization on the form.
Students must submit a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). The FAFSA may be filed electronically at http://www.fafsa.gov/. For detailed instructions, please see our Paying for College page.
During the week, our first operation opens at 6:30 a.m. and our last operation closes at 11 p.m. Food is available throughout the day and evening. On the weekends, our first operation opens at 11 a.m. and the last operation closes at 11 p.m.
Notify the Health Center staff about your special diet. A special diet must be submitted to the Dining Services management staff. They will review the diet with you and make sure we have the proper items available so that you get good nutrition. We can accommodate any kind of diet restriction. Communicating a special dietary need early is important to ensure proper nutrition is being met.
Our meal plans are designed to fit different eating habits of individuals. The 18 meal per week plan is excellent for on-campus freshman and frequent diners. If a student goes home most weekends he/she may want to consider a nine meal per week plan. Students who eat frequently, but lightly, may choose a five meal per week plan with $500 in the declining balance portion. You can change your meal plan during the first two weeks of the Fall Semester. After that, the only time you can change your meal plan is when you process your bill for the Spring Semester. New students in the Spring Semester would have the first two weeks of the Spring Semester to change their meal plan.
