Q: I’m receiving calls and emails saying my tuition is due, don’t I have until the 31st to enroll in the payment plan?

fees?

A: Yes. Authorized financial aid and company billing will be included when calculating the
installment payments. Please note that if your financial aid or company billing status changes,
you are still responsible for the increased installment payments.

Q: Can I enroll in the payment plan if I have a past due balance from a prior semester?

A: No, you cannot combine a prior term balance in a current term payment plan. Prior term
balances must be paid in full before you are eligible to enroll in the current term payment plan. 

NOTE: If your past due balance is $500 or less for the 2018 Spring term, please contact the Bursar’s Office at 215-751-8130 or bursarsoffice@ccp.edu. We may have an option to assist you in securing your Summer and Fall registration.

Q: Can I make a payment on my account prior to the payment plan enrollment date?

A: Yes, payments may be made to your student account prior to the payment plan enrollment
date. Any payment to your student account prior to your enrollment in the payment plan will
reduce the amount owed for the semester. Your installment payments will be comprised of the
remaining account balance.

Q: How do additional charges or payments on my student account affect my monthly
installment payment amounts?

A: The payment plan recalculates based on any changes to your student account. Any charges
or payments made to your student account will automatically adjust your remaining payment
plan installments when you login to review your balance.
NOTE: Monthly installment amounts will NOT adjust 7 days or less prior to a payment due date
even if new charges are added to your account during that time. Future installments will be
adjusted to take into account these balance changes and the new payment amount will take
effect with the following month's installment payment.

Q: Where can I find the dates and amount due for my future payments?

A: You will receive a reminder email that your monthly installment is due 7 days prior to the
installment due date. To view all due dates and installment amounts, login to the MyCCP portal.
From the Student menu choose Financial Services then choose Pay My Bill. Once inside the
payment portal, the Installment Payment Plans menu is on the right side of the page; choose
the Enroll in/View your Payment Plan link to see your plan details.

Q: I just priority registered for a future semester. Can I enroll in the payment plan earlier than
the published enrollment dates?

A: No, the payment plan requires that the student’s charges appear on their account for the
proper payment plan calculation. Tuition charges are expected to be assessed in late June for
the Fall semester, mid-October for the Spring semester and late March for the Summer
semester. Once tuition has been assessed for the semester, we will open that semester’s
installment payment plan for registration.
