Tuition Payment Plan

Tuition Payment Plan


Before enrolling in a payment plan, students are encouraged to complete a FAFSA and meet with a financial aid counselor to learn about all financial aid they may be eligible to receive. 

To help ease the burden of paying for college, OCtech offers a tuition payment plan for current term balances greater than $200.  This is a payment plan and not a loan.  There are no interest or finance charges and there is no credit check.

Using the payment plan, tuition can be paid in three installments.  A down payment of one-third (1/3) of the account balance, along with a $35 fee, must be paid to enroll in the program.  Only tuition and related fees can be calculated in the account balance due.  Books and program-specific fees cannot be included and must be paid by the established payment deadlines.  The remaining balance is paid through two (2) additional payments.  

To better budget and accumulate funds for the December 11th payment, students may make multiple payments (in any amount) to their accounts prior to December 11th as long as sufficient funds have accumulated by December 11th to cover the amount due.  However, all students must sign and submit payment plan enrollment form to the College cashier.  The enrollment form should be completed and submitted with the 1st payment.  A payment plan is not considered active until both the 1/3 down-payment and the enrollment form have been received by OCtech.

For Spring 2018, tuition payments are due:

•    December 11, 2017 (1/3 down-payment plus $35 enrollment fee)
•    February 1, 2018
•    March 1, 2018

New enrollees must attend an information session before enrolling in a payment plan.  Sessions will be held in the S building (Gulbrandsen Room) on:

•    Monday, November 27 at 3 pm
•    Wednesday, November 29 at 9 am
•    Monday, December 4 at 3 pm
•    Wednesday, December 6 at 9 am
•    Monday, December 11 at 3 pm
•    Wednesday, December 13 at 9 am

The payment plan is only available for the current semester and you must not have an outstanding debt from a prior term.
