Bill Payment, Refunds & Payment Plans

Many students pay their semester bill with financial aid, a payment plan or both.  If you need help determining your college costs or exploring ways to pay, call us at 518-564-2072 and talk with an aid advisor.

The information below explains in more detail how to pay your bill, how to choose your refund preference, and how to create a proxy account so parents or other authorized individuals can access your account activity and make a payment on your behalf.

I have been very impressed all along with the professionalism and responsiveness from all your staff. It is clear that SUNY Plattsburgh puts students and family first.

Proxy Accounts

Proxy account management allows students to grant and revoke permissions for others to view information on their records, pay bills, or speak with student financial services.

What Is a Proxy?

A proxy is someone who has been assigned by the student to view information. Proxy access is granted for a maximum of one academic year and must be renewed each year. Many students elect to create a proxy account for their parents or other individuals helping with the college process. Likewise, the student can revoke or update these permissions at any time.

It is a student’s responsibility to create and maintain proxy accounts (login with Net ID required).  Proxy access is granted for a maximum of one academic year and must be renewed each year.
