Yes, Tri-County Technical College accepts Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express. Currently, there is a 2.75% service fee when paying by credit or debit card. Tri-County also offers an e-Check payment option at no additional charge. To pay by e-Check, students must pay online by logging onto their MyTCTC under the My Payments tile.

An e-Check is an electronic direct debit to your checking account. Any checking account can be used, provided it allows for direct draft, and is drawn against an account with a US bank. We can only accept payments in US dollars. When making an e-Check payment, you must provide your routing number and checking or savings account number. Please verify this information with your financial institution.

Verification of bank account number and funds availability through the ACH (Automated Clearing House) system will take place and the debit to your bank account will occur within 3 to 5 business days after the payment transaction is completed on-line. Therefore, to avoid overdrafts, it is strongly recommended that there are sufficient funds available at the time of payment.

Equity line accounts and investment accounts cannot be used for ACH debit transactions. Please verify account information with your financial institution if you are uncertain.

There is a $30.00 NSF fee assessed to the student account for any returned e-Check payment. This will be in addition to any charges assessed by the financial institution.
