Payment Deadlines and Outstanding Balance Process

Each semester Arapahoe Community College notifies students with an outstanding balance on their student account via an automated communication system. If you register after the first payment date, you must pay your account in full or initiate a my payment plan prior to the next payment deadline.

Weekly payment deadline dates are posted online under myACC > Student Finance tab.  On these deadline dates (listed below) your classes will be dropped at the close of the business day if:

  1. Your account balance of $790.00 (or higher) is not paid in full.
    1. It is the student's responsibility to ensure all classes are dropped by the census date in order to receive a refund or not be financially responsible for the class. Do not rely on the system or drop process to cancel your classes.
    2. Students will balances less than $790.00 will not be dropped - but will receive notification for any balance greater than $.01 on the Payment Deadline Dates listed below.
    3. Students with balances less than $790.00 are still responsible for their financial obligation to ACC - unpaid balances will be sent to state collections. Students who are unsure of their drop status should contact the Cashier's Office for verification at 303.797.5638.
  2. You have not enrolled in My Payment Plan.
  3. You do not have third party billing in place.
  4. You do not have Financial Aid awarded and accepted.

Check your account balance or financial aid status in myacc logo> Student Finance tab.

Notification Process for Students with Outstanding Balance

The automated notification system consists of a communication piece sent to:

  1. Student email account (
  2. Automated voice message
  3. Text message, if enabled to your mobile device and you have signed up for the ACC Notification system via myACC (to enable text messages, visit our Student Communications page for instructions)
  • Students with an outstanding balance on their account for the current semester will be notified the day prior and the day of each payment deadline date.  If you receive notification and you believe your balance is paid by one of the methods listed above, please call the Cashier's Office immediately at 303.797.5638 to avoid being dropped from your classes.
  • Students registering between or on a payment deadline date will need to pay their balance in full to avoid classes being dropped. 
  • Dropped students will then be notified the next business morning of dropped class(es) and may not be able to re-register for high demand course(s). 
    • If the course is full, then the student will need to find other course(s) or get the instructor's approval to be added back in prior to the course's add/drop date (also known as census date). 
    • If it is after the course's add/drop date also known as census date, then a student will not be able to re-register as registration for the course is closed. Students are advise to find late starting course(s).
  • Students who complete their FAFSA less than six weeks prior to the start of the semester or are waiting for their Financial Aid to be awarded to their account are encouraged to enroll in the payment plan to avoid being dropped from classes.
    • Applying for FAFSA before the recommended FAFSA deadline as outlined in important Financial Aid dates will help ensure your financial aid is awarded before the payment deadline.
    • If you have questions regarding Financial Aid, please email the Financial Aid office at from your email account.
