Prior Term Payment Plan

Fall 2018 Only

TCC is piloting a prior term payment plan for any student with an outstanding Fall 2018 undergraduate tuition account balance. This allows you the opportunity to pay off your balance with auto-drafted, scheduled, monthly installments.

Once the balance is paid in full, you will be able to register for classes and request transcripts. If, at any time, the payment plan becomes delinquent (missed or returned payment), the account is subject to being sent to a third-party collection agency immediately.

Prior term payment plans cannot be combined with any other payment plans.

This is a one-time offer and is only for Fall 2018 undergraduate tuition account balances.

Eligibility

You're eligible for this plan if you:

  1. Have a Fall 2018 undergraduate tuition account balance, and
  2. Did not participate in the Spring 2018 Prior Term Payment Plan

Any other Fall 2018 charges, or any tuition account balances from a term prior to Fall 2018, will need to be paid in full.

Missed/Returned Payments

If, at any time, the payment plan becomes delinquent (missed or a returned payment), you will immediately be restricted from future term registrations and/or may be dropped from any current registrations.

You will not receive a transcript until your balance is paid in full.

If the balance is not paid in full by the last scheduled installment, your account may be sent to a third party collection agency. You will be responsible for any collection agency 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 full payment prior to the end of the semester or term may be denied credit for the work done that semester or term.
