Online Payment Options
- It is your responsibility to present the purchase order, tuition assistance form or letter of intent at the time you pay your tuition.
- The purchase order, tuition assistance form or letter of intent must state your name, social security number, amount to be paid, billing address, and original signature of the person or persons authorizing payment.
- The bookstore is an independent entity from the college and must be paid directly by the employer. It is your responsibility to present a separate purchase order, tuition assistance form or letter of intent addressed to the Campus Bookstore.
- In the event the employer refuses to pay after receipt of the bill, the student becomes immediately responsible for all tuition and fees.
- If there are any questions regarding this procedure, please contact the Student Accounts Office.
- Financial assistance at CCC may include scholarships, grants, loans, or work-study employment. A student must apply for financial assistance and may be offered a single type of assistance or a combination package, depending on the level of need and eligibility requirements. Aid may be provided by the college or through federal and state agencies, foundations, corporations or other organizations.
- Apply early to be sure to access all the assistance you are eligible for.
- Financial aid applications should be submitted at least three weeks before your start date or the college cannot guarantee that your financial aid will be available by your first day of class.
- If your financial aid has been processed, you should see on your bill the amount of grants, scholarships and loans for which you are eligible. Your aid is finalized each semester on the last day of free add/drop period.
- Grants, scholarships and loans will be credited to your account. Any remaining aid balance will be refunded approximately two weeks after you begin classes. Students placed in work-study positions will receive biweekly paychecks.
