Making payments & TFC Contract
What do I do if I have not received my TFC Payment Booklet to start making payments?
We advise you to come and speak with the Financial Aid Department or the Bursar. We will check the TFC website or contact TFC to find out why you have not received the TFC Payment Booklet. We also advise you that the contract you signed provides the date and amount to be paid so you should not wait for the TFC Payment Booklet.
What do I do if I cannot pay using credit or debit card?

Are there any consequences for not making my TFC payments?
NYADI internal policy is if a student is late making payments on their TFC Contract, we will reach out to that student via telephone, email or pulled from class.
