FALL 2018 TUITION PAYMENT DEADLINE:  

All tuition and fees for the fall 2018 term must be paid, or payment arrangements must be in place, prior to midnight on AUGUST 12, 2018. Students who have registered for fall classes, but have not paid by the due date, will have their registration cancelled. See payment options below. If cancellation occurs, and student requests reinstatement of classes, a $75 reinstatement charge will be applied to the student account.

Payment Options

  • Pay in full through Student Self Service, https://students.kctcs.edu
  • Sign up for an automatic payment plan through Student Self Service,
    (NOTE: The payment plan is available for the fall and spring semesters only and NOT available for bi-term courses or summer sessions.)
  • Defer tuition/fees to financial aid, if Somerset Community College has verified your eligibility for federal student financial aid
  • Submit a Third Party Billing Authorization to the Third Party Coordinator, or 
  • Submit verification of an outside scholarship to cover tuition and fees to the Scholarship Coordinator in the Financial Aid Office.

NOTE: If students decide not to attend their classes, it is their responsibility to drop them. Students are responsible for the payment of tuition and fees for all courses not dropped during the first 100% refund period (See Academic Calendar), regardless of whether or not the student chooses to attend the class. If you decide not to attend, please do not rely on the "registration cancellation for non-payment" process as a way to drop your classes.
