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, log in to MyPCC and go to the Paying for College tab. Click on PCC-Pay, then click the Payment Plans tab. Sign up by clicking Enroll in Payment Plan.

  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.

To change your info, you must first add your new payment method and then change to this new method on your payment plan. To add your new payment method, log into PCC-Pay, click Payment Profile, then Add your New Payment Method. After you have added the new payment method, go back to the Home Screen of the payment portal and select your payment plan in the middle of the page, then select Update All Methods located at the bottom of the page to select your new payment method.

What if my class schedule changes?

If you add or drop classes, it’s no problem! Your scheduled payment will be automatically adjusted and you will receive an email with the new amount.

Do you have any payment plans for past due accounts?

Yes, the college offers 3, 6 and 12 installment plans for students who were unable to pay during the term. The plan has to be set up within 90 days of the end of the term and you won’t be able to register for classes until your balance is paid in full. To set up the plan, please contact the Student Account Services office. You will need to be prepared to pay your first installment plus a $25 set up fee when you contact us.
