Paying for College

Updated: 03/21/2016

Calculating what you owe, researching applicable funding options, selecting options for paying for college, and paying tuition and fees before the deadline!

Part of being a student is researching options for financing your college courses prior to registering for classes for the semester.

Planning includes researching, learning, and discussing with experts to understand college resources and opportunities available to aid you in reaching your educational goals.

You have four easy ways to pay your tuition and fees:

    1. Make online payments using your Online Student Center, where you can use any of the four major credit cards to make your payment.
    2. Make a payment in person at the college cashier's office using cash, credit card, or a check.
    3. Enroll in a monthly payment plan (Nelnet Business Solutions).
    4. Use financial aid funds such as scholarships, grants, and loans, all of which apply to the balance of your tuition and fees automatically when awarded.

    For more information on paying your tuition and fees, view the Payment Methods article here.

    If you cannot pay the balance of your tuition and fees yourself, there are a variety of resources that can help you pay for college. Many students receive some type of financial aid (more than one in every three) and also typically use a blend of the resources to help fund their education. If you are interested in applying for financial aid, Maricopa Community Colleges’ financial services staff are here to help you sort through all of the information to make financially responsible decisions!
