Payment Plan

To help you meet your expenses at Onondaga, we are pleased to offer an interest-free payment plan. This convenient monthly budget plan gives you two options for making monthly payments: You can make automatic bank payments, or you can charge payments to your MasterCard, Visa, American Express or Discover Card. There is a $33.00 non-refundable enrollment fee per semester for the payment plan to fund administrative expenses related to offering this service.

The deadlines to enroll in the payment plan are as follows. Please note that the required down payment and the number of monthly payments vary depending upon when you enroll in the plan.

Pay in Full

If you choose to pay in full, tuition payments may be made in several ways.

How to Make a Payment in Full

Payment Policies

  • Review your responsibilities in the Financial Responsibility Agreement. Returned Checks will incur a thirty three dollar fee, and will require tuition payment by cash or cashier's check.
  • Onondaga Community College has a first available funds policy which states that deferred tuition and fees will be collected from the first source of financial aid to be credited to the student's account. For example: if tuition and fees are deferred under TAP and PELL but a student loan comes in first, the balance due will be deducted from the student loan. A refund check will be issued for the remainder of any aid (loans, PELL, TAP), if any, that may exist after payment of all outstanding charges. Students are encouraged to sign up for direct deposit otherwise a paper check will be issued.
