Paying Your Bill

  3. Online: Log into myACC, go to the "Student Finance" page and find the payment options box, select "pay with credit card".
  4. Have Financial Aid in place.
    1. Apply for FAFSA before the deadlines as recommended in our Payment Deadlines section. This will help make sure your financial aid is awarded before the payment deadline.
    2.  Check myACC for your financial aid award. Make sure the financial aid award covers the entire balance. If it does not, make other payment arrangements for the remaining balance. 
  5. Sign up for a payment plan. My Payment Plan.
  6. Notify Cashiers office of 3rd party agreement.

If You Don't Pay Your Bill

  1. You could be dropped from classes
    1. Fall 2019 – July 29, 2019: If you registered prior to July 22, 2019, for Fall 2019 courses with tuition and fee balances must make payment by 5:00 p.m. MST.
  2. You could have a hold placed on your account which will impact your ability to add/drop/withdraw from classes or order transcripts.
  3. You could be sent to collections and an additional collections commission of 30% would be added to the account balance.

Each semester we do our best to notify students of their outstanding balances. However, it is ultimately your (the student’s) responsibility to monitor your account. Outstanding balance notifications are sent to:

  1. Student email account (@student.cccs.edu)
  2. Phone number on file via a recorded message
  3. Text message, if you signed up to receive messages via mobile device through the ACC Notification system through myACC (to enable text messages, visit our Student Communications page for instructions)
