Payment Plan

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 $25 non-refundable fee plus 10% of your total anticipated balance due immediately to establish a payment plan for fall and spring semesters.

Guidelines for Use of Payment Plans

  1.  Students must be paid in full or signed up for the Payment plan by 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 will 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 will be dropped from classes (including campus housing & meal plan) immediately upon default. (Note: Drops will 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. A $30 late fee will be charged for every payment missed. 
  7. Balances more than 90 days past due will be sent to collections.
