Signing up for a payment plan in PCC-Pay

Going to college does not have to be a financial burden. Our interest-free payment plans are a smart way to pay college costs. Payment plans let you spread the cost of your education into affordable monthly or bi-weekly payments. Use the tuition calculator to estimate what your payments will be.

How to sign up

A new payment plan must be set up each term. To be eligible for a payment plan, you must owe at least $150 in eligible charges.

  1. Sign up in PCC-Pay

    During the enrollment period, login to MyPCC and go to the Paying for College tab. Click on PCC-Pay, then click the Payment Plans tab. Sign up by clicking the green Enroll Now button.

  2. Choose your plan

    Choose either the three or the five installment plan. A $20 per term non-refundable fee is due upon enrollment. Any down payment you make will reduce the amount of each scheduled payment equally - it will not pay off your first installment. Enrolling late? You will be required to pay your first installment immediately.

  3. Be prepared to pay

    The money will be automatically deducted from your bank account on the installment due dates - make sure there is enough in your account to cover the charges. A fee of up to $25 will be charged if a scheduled payment is missed.
