Tuition Payment Information
When students enroll in classes, they accept responsibility for payment of all tuition and fees due to the college. Every student must make tuition payment arrangements according to the following fees due dates to complete the enrollment process.
2015-2016 Tuition Fees Due Dates
|If you enrolled in classes
|by Jan. 15
|Pay in full by cash, check, credit or debit card, OR complete financial aid requirements, OR enroll in a payment plan.
*Failure to either pay in full, complete financial aid requirements, or sign up for a payment plan by the deadline will result in a hold on student's account. A hold means that the student cannot make schedule changes, enroll in future terms or receive a transcript until they have met one of the payment options. Students who choose to enroll in a payment plan will not be able to receive a transcript until all payments for current semester have been received and account balance is zero.
Note: Students who wish to enroll when eligible in the next semester will need to pay any balance or pending scheduled payment on their accounts.
Attention FAFSA students: Filing a FAFSA and submitting it to State Fair Community College serves as your financial commitment to attend courses at SFCC. If SFCC has received your FAFSA, you have until the fees due date of each semester to pay your account in full (by financial aid, personal payment or combination thereof) or enroll in a payment plan. Failure to either pay your account in full or enroll in a payment plan by this date, will result in a hold on your account and a potential recalculation of your financial aid award.
