Tuition and Payments

Tuition and Payments

Payment made easy

You can pay your tuition and fees online or in person at a Cashier Office. Payment is due once you register for classes. It is important to note that ACC does not mail bills or statements. We encourage you to pay in full or set up a payment plan immediately to avoid missing your tuition deadline. You will be dropped from any unpaid classes after the tuition deadline.

Don’t miss your deadline!

  • Check your tuition deadline to avoid losing your classes.
  • If you miss your deadline, you will need to re-register for classes. We cannot guarantee seats will still be available if you have to re-register.
  • Meningitis documents also must be processed and approved before your tuition deadline.

Payment options

  • Methods of payment

    ACC accepts cash, checks, credit cards (American Express, Discover, Mastercard, and Visa), money orders (U.S.), and cashier checks drawn from U.S. banks.

    Pay online

    You can make online payments with a credit card, debit card, or e-check.

    Pay in person

    To pay in person, visit any Cashier Office during business hours.

    Pay by mail

    Pay by mail, using a check or money order. Allow seven to 10 business days for mail and processing time.  Do NOT send cash.

    Make checks or money orders payable to Austin Community College.

    • Two-party checks, foreign money orders, or checks drawn from foreign banks are NOT accepted
    • Payment must be for the exact amount due.   Partial payments or overpayments are NOT accepted
    • You must show an official photo ID when paying by check

    Write the following information your payment: Your ACCeID number and the phone number and driver’s license number of the payment signer.

    Mail to:
    ACC/SVC Cashier Office
    9101 Tuscany Way
    Austin, TX 78754

    IMPORTANT: ACC must receive your payment at our office before your tuition deadline or you will be dropped from your classes.

    Insufficient funds – returned items or chargebacks

    A $25 service fee applies for any items returned (ACH, chargeback, stop payment) unpaid for any reason by your financial institution. Current classes may be dropped on the next tuition deadline and a student hold will be placed on your account.

    In order to remove the hold, you must pay the full amount, including service fees, by cash or money order.

    ACC refers unpaid amounts to a collection agency, which may assess further charges. You may be responsible for any resulting collection costs and attorney fees.

  • Payment plan

    ACC’s payment plan can help if you can’t pay your full tuition by the deadline.

  • Financial aid

    It is your responsibility to ensure your tuition and fees are paid in full by your tuition deadline. If you have NOT been offered and accepted aid to cover the full tuition and fees by your payment deadline, then you may be dropped from classes. See disbursement and refunds.

    When to pay tuition

    You must pay any outstanding balance at registration if:

    Confirm payment

    It’s important to confirm your financial aid has been paid by checking your billing statement online. Your classes will be dropped if your bill is not paid in full before the tuition deadline.

  • Other payment arrangements

     

    Third-party sponsorships

    If your tuition will be paid by a sponsor ( for example,  some other agency,  your employer or a government agency), be sure they complete the authorization process before you register.

    • Sponsorship agreement forms can be obtained from the Student Accounting Office  (512) 223-1093, (512) 223-1091 or email accspons@austincc.edu
    • ACC must approve all third-party sponsorships
    • Before registering, confirm with your sponsor that the sponsor agreement has been  approved.
    • If you register before the sponsor is approved you could be dropped from your classes
    • NOTE: You are responsible to pay any amount not covered by the sponsor by the next payment deadline.

    Scholarships

    Private organizations including businesses, churches, civic groups, and clubs make scholarships available to deserving students. Check with your local library, the following online search engines, and private organizations for scholarship opportunities. Visit the ACC Scholarships website for more information.

    Prepaid Accounts

    Prepaid accounts may be used to pay the amount of tuition and fees only. Students can request a copy of their tuition and fees statement by emailing accspons@austincc.edu or obtain a statement copy at a campus cashier office. Students must pay any balance not covered by these plans by the payment deadline or classes will be dropped.

    • Texas Guaranteed Tuition Fund or other states’ Sponsored Tuition Funds: Email a copy of the ID card issued by the fund or other proof of enrollment in the fund along with a copy of the student’s driver’s license to accspons@austincc.edu.

    Tuition exemptions and waivers

    See exemptions and waivers available to some Texas residents.

    Veterans benefits

    Arrange for ACC veteran services before you register.

Non-Payment

Delinquent installment contracts, unpaid returned checks, outstanding miscellaneous charges and financial aid adjustments will be sent to a third-party agency for collection.  The student will be responsible for all collection costs and attorney fees.

Per Texas Education Code 54.007(2)(d):  A student who fails to make full payment of tuition and mandatory fees, including any incidental fees, by the due date may be prohibited from registering for classes until full payment is made.  A student who fails to make payment prior to the end of the semester or term may be denied credit for the work done that semester or term.

Authorize other users

The Family Educational Right and Privacy Act (FERPA) is a federal law which protects the privacy of a student’s educational records. The college is unable to release information to others without the student’s written permission.

Students may authorize another person online access to their account by setting them up as an authorized user. Setting up an authorized user online does not grant ACC staff permission to discuss a student’s account record with the authorized user. The student may edit or delete the authorized user at any time.

1. Log in to your account.
2. Select Authorized Users, located on the right-hand menu.
3. Follow the prompts to complete setup.

In-Person Release of Student Information

The student must complete a Cashier Office Proxy Authorization Form to grant permission for the ACC cashier office to discuss the student’s account information with others. The original completed form must be presented to the Cashier Office at time of service.
