Pay Your Tuition

Tuition Deadlines

You must pay your college tuition by the applicable tuition deadline or your classes will be dropped. Your tuition deadline depends on when you register classes.

  • If you register between March 16 and August 10: You must pay for your tuition by 11 p.m. on August 10
  • If you register between August 11 and August 17: You must pay for your tuition by 11 p.m. on August 17
  • If you register on or after August 18: You must pay for your tuition by 11 p.m. on the day you register for classes

Remember:  Your classes will be dropped if tuition is not paid by the applicable deadline.

Exceptions: If you have sufficient approved financial aid (identified as anticipated financial aid in your myTCC Student Center), a current tuition assistance agreement (third-party contract), a senior citizen waiver, or are enrolled in TCC’s Tuition Payment Plan, your classes will be protected.

If your anticipated financial aid, third-party contract, or payment plan is not sufficient to pay all tuition and fee charges, you must pay the difference by the deadline or you will be dropped from unpaid classes.
