Three Ways to Pay Tuition

Online

Pay Tuition Online by Credit Card (VISA, Mastercard, American Express or Discover).

Use the Drop Box

The drop box is located in the main hallway outside room BE1104 (Registration):

  • Fill out the payment form:
    • If paying by credit card, include your credit card number
    • If paying by check, enclose your check in the payment envelope
  • Use the envelopes provided for your payment when using the Drop Box
  • Provide your current mailing address if you would like a receipt

Pay in–person

Pay in–person by cash, check, money order, or credit card (VISA, Mastercard, American Express or Discover).

Checks returned because of stop payment will be charged $30.75, and you, the student, will be immediately withdrawn from all courses. Pursuant to state law (RCW 28B.10.293 and RCW 19.16.500) any debts to the college will be increased by costs and expenses incurred in the collection of such debts.

Automatic Payment Plan

You can sign up for an online payment plan through eCashier that will allow you to pay for tuition through a flexible, no interest monthly payment plan.

Credit Discrepancy

For Tuition paying purposes, 10 or more credits is considered full–time. For academic, Social Security, VA, and loan guarantor purposes, 12 or more credits is considered full–time.
