Frequently Asked Questions

Student bills are no longer mailed. Your student bill will be available online about an hour after you are registered for the term. To view your bill and schedule, log in to MyTCTC and click the ‘My Bill/Schedule’ tile. If you cannot access your online bill, please call the Business Office at 864-646-8282, Option 2.

Once you have registered for classes, a seat is held in those classes until the payment deadline. Your seat in the class is secured when financial aid funding has posted to the student account, you are enrolled in the payment plan for the particular term, and/or full payment has been made of the balance owed.  If you change your schedule at any time during the drop/add period of the term, review your online bill to determine if a balance has been created as a result of the schedule change. Be aware that dropping a class may cause a reduction in financial aid, resulting in a balance due. You must be paid in full or enrolled in a payment plan at each payment deadline to maintain schedule. To view your bill and schedule, log in to MyTCTC and click the ‘My Bill/Schedule’ tile.

If it’s still within the approved registration period, you will need to add your classes back and then pay your tuition and fees. You must be prepared to make full payment or enroll in the payment plan by the next payment deadline.  In addition, there may be a late fee assessed. Payments can be made by cash or check in the Business Office or paid by credit or debit card online.

Yes, TCTC accepts Discover, MasterCard, Visa, and American Express, online only. Currently, there is a 2.83% service fee when paying by credit or debit card. TCTC also offers an e-Check payment option at no additional charge. To pay by e-Check, students must pay online by logging in to their MyTCTC account and use their bank routing number and account number.

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.

  • Log into your MyTCTC, click on the ‘My Payments’ tile.

No fees apply if you draft your bank account). You can also enroll in Auto Pay for an automatic monthly draft. If you add a class after enrolling in a payment plan, you must ‘consolidate’ your plan. Consolidating gives approval to add the additional charges to your payment plan.

  5. If the student was able to receive used items, the balance of the payment plan will be adjusted to reflect the actual amount charged in the bookstore.
  6. If a student is already enrolled in a payment plan before adding books, they must ‘consolidate’ their plan to add the book charges. Consolidating gives approval to add the additional charges to the payment plan.
