Payment Plan Option for Classes

College of DuPage students have the option of either paying for their course tuition in full or using the Automatic Payment Plan option. This option is available to students with a minimum tuition balance of $100.

Payment Plans

College of DuPage offers affordable payment plans for students. The payment plans provide the student the ability to make payments throughout the semester. If you are eligible for financial aid (i.e. grants, loans, or Veteran Benefits) you may be eligible for a deferred payment plan if your financial aid account is in good standing, your Expected Family Contribution is less than 2501, or you have accepted your loans, or you are a qualified Veteran. The deferred payment plan scheduled payments usually do not begin until seven weeks after the start of the semester to allow time for posting of all financial aid to a student's account. All students who enroll in the active or deferred payment plan will have payments automatically charged to a checking/savings account or debit/credit card. A late fee will be charged for all missed payments. Failure to make the payments as agreed upon may result in your classes being dropped for non-payment for the amount owed.

Active Payment Plan

  • Enroll through MyAccess.
  • A set-up fee of $25.00 will be charged at time of enrollment.
  • A down payment will be required at time of enrollment.
  • Payment plans are for one term only.
  • Payments are automatic.

Deferred Payment Plan for qualified students

  • Enroll through MyAccess.
  • A $5.00 down payment will be required at time of enrollment to verify financial information. The $5.00 will be refunded if financial aid covers 100% of the billed amount. For students whose aid does not cover 100% of the billed amount the $5.00, will be applied to the outstanding balance.
  • A set-up fee of $25.00 will be charged if first scheduled payment is processed.
  • Payment plans are for one term only.
  • Payments are automatic.

Company Sponsored Billing Option

Sponsored Billing is available for those students whose employers will pay for their tuition and fees regardless of grades or class attendance. If grades or attendance are required for reimbursement, the student will need to pay for the classes and get reimbursed from their employer. The student will be responsible for all charges on their account.

 The student and sponsor must accept the terms and conditions of the Sponsored Billing Agreement.

  • The Sponsor understands that the College of DuPage does not monitor grades or attendance.
  • All courses the students registers for in the term listed will be covered unless otherwise noted on the Sponsored Billing Agreement.
  • The Sponsored Billing Agreement must be signed by both the student and the Sponsor to be effective.
  • The Sponsor agrees to pay 30 days from start of term.
  • A letter from the Sponsor on company letterhead must also be provided.

 Process for Sponsored Billing

  1. Download the Sponsored Billing Agreement and Company Letter.
  2. Complete all sections of the Sponsored Billing Application including student and sponsor signatures.
  3. Fax, mail or return in person the Sponsored Billing Agreement and letter on company letterhead to the Registration Office at College of DuPage. Addresses for submitting the application are on the front of the Sponsored Billing Agreement.

Upon receipt of the Sponsored Billing Agreement, your tuition will be deferred and your sponsor will receive an invoice for your tuition. The student will be responsible for any charges not paid by the sponsor. If the sponsor does not pay, the student will receive an invoice and have a hold placed on their account until paid in full.
