Payment plan

Your most affordable college option is now even more affordable

Pay your tuition and fees in up to four monthly installments with TCC’s payment plan, administered by Tuition Management Systems (TMS). Paying as-you-go is the best way to pay your education expenses. Why make a large payment each semester, when you can spread out your expenses over smaller monthly payments?

  • Low enrollment fee

Before you sign up, read this

If your enrollment status changes for any reason, you must log in to the TMS payment portal and adjust your payment plan contract amount. 

TMS will notify TCC of your adjustment and will approve or deny the adjustment based on your enrollment as shown in SIS.

Adjustments must be completed before the adjustment deadline as indicated on the payment plan calendar above.

After the last day to increase payment plan contract amounts, the student is responsible for paying the college directly for any additional classes or those classes will be dropped.

As with any financial transaction, make sure you read and fully understand the Terms and Conditions for the tuition payment plan. Download the plan's Terms and Conditions (PDF).
