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:
Our colleges offer payment plan options to split tuition and fee payments into smaller, more manageable amounts, over a defined schedule. TA will be applied to the student account when received. Pay My Tuition (See My Tuition Payment Plan)
Active Duty members can utilize their GI Bill™ benefits for tuition purposes. Service members must apply directly to VA at VETS.GOV. We recommend calling the VA prior to using VA benefits at 1-888-442-4551.
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. TA received after self-payments, will be applied to the student account and refunded to the student. Pay My Tuition.
