You will be asked to acknowledge that you understand that you are responsible to pay for all charges associated with your attendance and where applicable, residence costs at the university.  If you refuse to sign the form, your enrollment will be subject to cancellation since you are not agreeing to pay the charges which you incur as a result of the services you receive at Fordham.
