Here is a great way to budget your college tuition-Academic and Continuing Education Payment Plans.   

Academic Payment Plans   

Payment Plans are available online.  There is a Payment Plan for everyone.  Payment Plans are available for each semester and has preset dates that determines the payment due date.  There is a $25.00 charge due when a contract is set up. The first payment is due when the contract is initiated.  This action is needed prior to your payment deadline.  (It is an easy way to prevent from being purged from your classes.)

PAYMENT PLANS  

Once a payment plan has been set up, you can schedule the additional payments to be automatically deducted from your checking account or applied to your credit card.  Remember, if you choose this option, all payments will be made prior to the payment deadline and no additional actions are necessary.

In addition, there is a $10.00 Late Fee charged when a payment is not paid by the payment deadline.

Accounts not paid by the final due date are subject to be sent to one of the Alamo Colleges Collection Agencies and you are responsible for any additional fees assessed.

Payment deadlines vary based on when you registered and the plan you have chosen.  You choose a plan based on your registration or when your classes are offered.
