Important Notice Regarding Health Insurance For 2013 - 2014. SUNY Cortland has been notified that due to the requirements and restrictions of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the College's insurance carrier has declined to underwrite a policy for the 2013 - 2014 academic year. As a result, students, other than international students or students who will be studying abroad, wishing to purchase insurance will be responsible for securing their own coverage through a private carrier or health insurance exchange. International students and students studying abroad are covered under a different policy. Such students are required to have adequate coverage and, if needed, can purchase coverage through the school.
Important note on how you will be receiving bills. In an effort to conserve both natural resources and reduce printing and postage expenses, we do not mail bills. Your myRedDragon Account is the official location where we will post your billing statement. Email reminders will be sent to your Cortland preferred email address each time a billing statement is posted. It is therefore very important that you keep your in box available and check both your email notification and your account regularly for changes in charges, financial aid, or other billed items. For directions on how to view/print your bill, please see Beginner's Guide.
Fall 2013 bills will be available for viewing on Wednesday, July 10 (at approx. 4:00 p.m.).
Federal regulations stipulate that accounts belong to students and that we must bill the student as the primary account holder. However, students who have parents who are assisting them with payments of their bills should create authorized user accounts for any parent or guardian on QuikPay® as soon as possible. In this way, your authorized user(s) will also receive e mail notification each time a billing statement is posted. See Billing/Payment Information for directions on setting up authorized payers.
Parking Management System
The Parking Department has instituted a new, secure, and convenient online parking system. You can buy permits and appeal and/or pay all parking fines via myRedDragon. For information or instructions on how to use the system, please visit the University Police Parking web page.
Student Accounts Functions
The Student Accounts Office coordinates all functions related to student billing and payment. In addition to local management of the Monthly Payment Plan, Student Accounts processes all financial aid payments received on behalf of students, and disburses all refunds both from aid and/or overpayment. Other duties include managing the "residency for tuition purposes" function, calculation of refund amounts due to withdrawals, management of the list of accounts on "hold" for past due balances, as well as collection and miscellaneous financial functions for other College departments.

Allowing Someone Else to Pay Your Bill
For directions on how to "authorize" non-students (parents) access to student billing and account information, please refer to the Authorized Payers portion of our Billing/Payment Information page. Providing such access will also enable authorized payers to receive the same email notification students receive every time a bill is generated.
