Payment plans

There are a variety of payment plans available to students. If you are currently enrolled, please log in to ePayments and click on "Payment Plans" at the top of the page for payment amounts and specific due dates.

All students are required to enroll in a payment plan.

Four Installment (per semester) Plan

This plan allows students to make payments for each semester in four installments. There is a $29 late charge assessed to student accounts if the required payment is not made on the specified due date. If the semester is paid in full, the payment plan will default to a zero balance, avoiding any possible fees.

Late Session Only 2 Installment Plan (Evening, Nationwide, and Online students)

This plan is for students with no prior Early Session registration who are enrolling into the Late Session. It allows students to make payments for the Late 8-week Session in two installments. There is a $29 late charge assessed to student accounts if the required payment is not made on the specified due date. If the session is paid in full, the payment plan will default to a zero balance, avoiding any possible fees.

Financial Aid Fully Funded Plan

This plan allows students to enroll in a payment plan in which their account will be 100 percent paid by financial aid. This plan will show the entire balance due by a specific date, which will be near the end of the semester. However, the plan will be paid in full when financial aid is posted to the student account. No out-of-pocket payment should be due from the student. If financial aid is cancelled/reduced and no longer will cover 100 percent, payment would be due from the student by the listed due date.

Scholarship Payment Plan

This plan allows students to defer the expected balance owed for a given semester, if a tuition percentage-based grant or scholarship has been awarded. Examples of percentage-based awards include, but are not limited to: EEG/GEG, Two-In-Family Grant, Associate Degree Transfer Grant, Corporate Affiliation discounts, etc. If there is still a remaining balance after all other financial aid has been deducted, the remaining balance due is payable by installments on specified due dates.

VA Benefit Plan

This plan is for any student enrolling who receives VA benefits. You will be required to schedule an automatic payment made on the due date via electronic check or credit card. The due date is deferred until after the semester is concluded to allow time for authorizations to be processed and for Columbia College to receive payments. For those who enroll in the Early Session and make the payment arrangement at that time, any further enrollment (Late Session courses) will be included within this plan and in the originally scheduled payment.

TA Benefit Plan

This plan is for any student enrolling who receives TA benefits. The due date is deferred to allow time for authorizations to be processed and for Columbia College to receive payments. For those who enroll in the Early Session and make the payment arrangement at that time, any further enrollment (Late Session courses) will be included within this plan and in the originally scheduled payment.
