Tuition and Fees

check markChecklist Item: Pay your tuition!

If you find it difficult to pay your tuition by the due date, our payment plan lets you pay over time.
(NOTE: The payment plan is available for the fall and spring semesters only.)


All tuition and fees must be paid in full, or payment arrangements must be in place, prior to midnight on AUGUST 17, 2014.  Please access the Student Self-Service website for online payments:

Should financial aid or third party agencies not cover the full amount of tuition and fees, the student must pay the balance prior to midnight on AUGUST 17, 2014, to avoid cancellation.

Failure to pay by the deadline will result in the cancellation of all classes for the fall term offered through Somerset Community College. Students cancelled for nonpayment will be assessed a reinstatement fee to re-enroll in the cancelled classes.
