Costs and Payments

Student Account Payment Policy
In order to guarantee enrollment, it is the policy of Tulsa Community College that students must make college approved payment arrangements for classes or they will be dropped for non-payment (effective October 2011).

How to Pay for Classes

  • Students can sign-up online to pay in full or pay cash in person at any campus Bursar Office. There is no administrative fee if the student is paying in full up front.
  • Students can go online and choose a payment plan. There is a $35 dollar non-refundable service fee for students who select a payment plan. 

Students who have met priority financial aid deadlines by turning in all requested documents and are qualified to receive financial aid will not have their enrollments dropped for non-payment.

Financial Aid Priority Deadlines:

  • June 1st - Fall Semester
  • November 1st - Spring Semester
  • April 1st - Summer Semester

Students can use a third party method of payment under the conditions that the college can verify the payment source or that the student can provide acceptable documentation of the payment source.
