What We'll Need

In order to process an online tuition payment, we’ll need the student’s full name, Columbia College ID number, and date of birth.

How to Pay 

You may pay by credit or debit card. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express. You may also pay by E-check which will create an ACH draft from your bank account. Payments made on this site by 3:00 pm are posted to your tuition account the next business day.

Payments are first applied to any outstanding balance, which may be from a prior semester, then to the most recent balance.

We use a secure third-party site to accept payments.
