Securing Courses & Payment Options

Requesting TA does NOT secure your courses.  TA students MUST take action.  Below are options you may choose to secure your courses:

Payment Deferment (Payment Extension) Request for Pending MyCAA

This is NOT A PAYMENT, it is a request for additional time to pay.  Army MyCAA students may request a Payment Deferment to secure courses through payment deadlines. 

MyCAA will be applied to the student account when received from the Army.

Payment Plan Option

Our colleges offer payment plan options to split tuition and fee payments into smaller, more manageable amounts, over a defined schedule.

Pay My Tuition (See My Tuition Payment Plan)

Self-Pay Option

As a last resort, all students may opt to pay for their courses through their student account in ACES by credit/debit card or by electronic check. 

Those with Financial Aid Awards will have the aid applied to their account balances first before any disbursements (refunds) are processed.  Please check with your college Financial Aid Office if you have questions. 

MyCAA received after self-payments, will be applied to the student account and refunded to the student.
