THE CUNY COMEBACK PROGRAM (Deadline to Apply is November 1, 2021)
The Chancellor announced the CUNY Comeback Program on 7/28/21. This program will use federal Higher Education Emergency Relief Funds to remove financial barriers that prevent students and recent graduates from pursuing their educational and career objectives. Eligible students and recent graduates who incurred unpaid tuition and fee balances while enrolled at a CUNY college between Spring 2020 and the end of the Spring 2021 semester will have their remaining balances cleared. In most cases, outstanding balances will be discharged automatically by early August, allowing students to register for Fall 2021 classes and obtain their official transcripts. Students will receive a notification letter via email when the balances are cleared.
For more information about the CUNY Comeback Program, and a list of Frequently Asked Questions, please visit cuny.edu/comeback.
**IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PROGRAM, PLEASE EMAIL Comeback.Application@lehman.cuny.edu.**
