The Office of the Bursar (formerly known as Office of Student Accounts) strives to provide the highest professional, ethical, prompt, courteous, reliable and secure service to students, faculty, staff, alumni and others that comprise the campus community. These services include: handling inquiries regarding tuition, housing, and other accounts receivable issues; billing and collecting tuition, and other applicable fees; processing disbursement of federal, private and institutional aid, and refund checks. In addition, the Office of the Bursar manages deferred payment plans, tuition remission, exchange of fees with Columbia and interacts with other offices to resolve discrepancies with accounts.
Student statements are made available online in an electronic format via the myTC Portal. Student billing statements are generated on a monthly basis for any outstanding balances. eBill notifications are emailed to the student’s TC Gmail, the college’s official means of communication. The email provides instructions to login to the myTC Portal to retrieve the billing statement from a safe and secure site. Teachers College uses a third-party vendor, Higher One, for accepting electronic check payments, installment plans, eRefunds and electronic billing. We recommend that students set up their eRefund profile so that all refunds can be directly deposited into their bank of choice.
