The LRP is part of CUNY's "Continuing Education" system, and payments and registrations are not handled like they are for other classes.  Please be aware of the following:

* The program does not accept 'audits', even if you do not take the course to pass an exam, you are responsible for paying tuition.

* Payment is required in order to be registered

Classes fill up quickly sometimes, and registration is first come, first served.  If the LRP has not received your payment, you are not enrolled in a course. 

* Payment method

Payment is by check or money order. (Sorry, we do not take credit cards, bitcoin, etc)

On the check or money order itself:
**Make out the check to "CUNY Graduate Center."  
**Make sure the student's name and the course are written somewhere on the check or money order

* Delivering the payment

You must mail or bring your check directly to the LRP.  Do not bring your check to the Bursar's office.  You may mail your check or money order to the following address:

CUNY Graduate Center
Language Reading Program, Room 4414
365 5th Avenue
New York, N.Y. 10016

If you wish to bring your tuition payment in person, please email for an appointment:
