The Office of the Bursar is Cornell’s central billing service center for tuition, fees, and other charges incurred by students, and proactively assists families to manage their financial obligations to the university by offering dependable customer service and a variety of financial services, including the CornellCard program (a service that allows students to make purchases by presenting their Cornell ID cards), Cornell Net.Pay, the Cornell Installment Plan, and the Direct Deposit for Student Refunds Program. The Bursar also bills for and collects payment for Cornell-administered student loans, university receivables, and delinquent Bursar and CornellCard accounts.
