Payment Plans

Choose a payment plan that best meets the needs of your family.

Once you have registered for classes, the student accounts office establishes billing. Your account – if you’re full-time – will be credited any financial aid after you sign and return the financial aid award letter to the financial aid office. Keep your accounts up-to-date to avoid any holds (on access to diplomas, certificates, grade reports, transcripts and/or registration for new classes).

Semester Payment Plans

Payment in full

You can pay in full with cash, check or a credit card (Mastercard®, Visa® or Discover®). This payment is due August 22, 2017. See ThresherConnect for forms.

Deferred payment plan

Half of the semester balance is due August 22, 2017, and the remainder is due October 31, 2017. There is a $40 fee to use this payment option. Any payment received after the due date is subject to a $75 late payment fee. See ThresherConnect for forms.

Annual Payment Plan

Automatic bank draft

This is our only plan designed to pay for the entire year. Monthly payments are taken from your bank account on the 5th of each month, starting in September and ending in May. There is an annual processing fee of $100. The Office of Student Accounts will help you compute your monthly payment based on your annual charges. An overdraft fee of $75 will be charged on all insufficient fund withdrawals. A change fee of $20 will be charged to you for each change you make to this plan, e.g., stopping a withdrawal. See ThresherConnect for forms.


  • Failure to meet an installment that is due automatically cancels the privilege of class attendance and participation in athletic programs.
  • No diploma, certificate, transcript, term grade report, letter of honorable dismissal or letter of recommendation will be granted to a student who has indebtedness to the college.
  • A student who has any indebtedness to the college will not be permitted to complete enrollment for the following term’s classes.
