Payment Plan

Beginning Summer 2023 all payments are subject to a 2.85% servicing fee.

No charge ACH options are available through your MyHCC account. Please login and choose the Finances tab and then Make a Payment for more details. 


Highland Community College offers payment plans as yet another way to make college more affordable. Any student taking an HCC course may finance their tuition, fee and main campus housing via one of the payment plans. There is a $30 non-refundable fee plus 10% of your total anticipated balance due immediately to establish a payment plan for fall, spring and summer semesters.

Guidelines for Use of Payment Plans

  1.  Students must be paid in full or signed up for the Payment plan by Move-in/Registration Day each semester.

  2. Students who have not signed up for the plan or paid in full by close of business on registration day may be dropped from classes.

  3. Students may finance 90% of their semester bill and must *pay 10% of their semester bill upon signing up for the payment plan (*for fall and spring semesters only).

  4. Students defaulting on payments may be dropped from classes (including campus housing & meal plan) immediately upon default. (Note: Drops may be made after the second try to debit the card which will be equivalent to about the 27th of each month.)

  5. Students defaulting on payments may not be allowed to access the payment plan for subsequent semesters.

  6. There will be no monthly service fee acessed for a payment plan set up to charge via ACH (bank account)
