Payment Plan

Tuition and fees must be paid in full by the first Friday of the first week of the semester. If financial aid, third party authorization or personal payment does not fully cover the tuition and fees, the balance remaining is expected to be paid or have an approved payment plan contract. Students will be dropped from courses if there is an outstanding balance and no payment arrangement has been made by the due date, following the payment dates and deadline procedure.

The payment plan is a contract to defer tuition and fees for students with outstanding balances that will allow them to stay in their courses and make college more affordable.  A minimum of a $100 payment is required to be made on the student account (personal, third party or financial aid) prior to approval of the payment plan application.  There is no additional cost to the student if the payment plan is set up by the Friday before classes commence. However, a late payment plan enrollment is an option during the first week of school for a $25 non-refundable enrollment fee. 

If a student is still in the process of obtaining financial aid after the due date, the student is required to set up a payment plan. The established student payment plan requires a minimum of a $100 payment to be made on the student account (personal or third party) prior to acceptance of the payment plan application. When the financial aid process is completed and the loans/grants cover the remaining balance, the contract will be completed in satisfactory status. However, if a student has a remaining balance due, the payment is due in full by the 10 th business day after the award is applied to the student account. At this time the student may also request to have the payment plan revised to reflect the balance due.

Payment plan options are 4 months, 3 months and 2 months.  Payments are due on the 1 st of every month. However, if the first is on a weekend the payment will be due on the first following business day. The payment plan amount is determined by taking the total of the current amount due and dividing it evenly by the months of the payment plan request. A $25 late charge will be applied to the student account for any payment plan payments not received on the due date. A Business Office hold will be placed on the student account until the student becomes current with the payment plan contract. Student will also be removed from enrolled future courses.

Payments can be made online with a credit/debit card, or e-check, in the student’s MyGCC account 24/7. Check payments are accepted in the Business Office in person or by mail. Mail needs to be in the Business Office on or before the due date. Cash payments are accepted in the Business Office at the Ironwood Campus only.

If a check payment is returned, for any reason, a $25.00 returned check fee will be applied to the student account.  A Business Office hold will be placed on the student account and will remain until satisfactory completion of the payment plan contract. The student will also have check writing privileges revoked on their account.

A student with a payment plan contract that is in unsatisfied status at the end of the semester will retain a Business Office hold until the past due balance is paid in full. The student will not be able to register for future courses, receive transcripts or have transcripts sent to another institution, or business, until the Business Office hold is removed. Furthermore, any accounts past due over 120 days will be sent to collections.
