Fees for Auditing a Course

Students taking credit courses for no grade will pay the same enrollment fees and tuition as regular credit students. Students age 65 and older who audit a course may request to have the enrollment fee waived.

Fee Payment

Students at Oklahoma City Community College will be charged tuition and fees for all classes in which they are enrolled as of the fee due date for the semester. Fee due dates are listed in the College Class Schedule and the College Catalog. Students who pay on their date of enrollment or by the fee due date for the semester will pay tuition and fees only. Students who choose to make monthly payments will be assessed a finance charge. Students enrolling after the initial due date must pay in full at the time of enrollment or go to the Bursar’s Office to find out the minimum payment due.

STUDENTS WILL NOT BE CANCELLED FROM CURRENT CLASSES DUE TO NON-PAYMENT OF CURRENT TUITION AND FEES BY THE FEE DUE DATE.

Instead, students will be automatically billed on a monthly basis for all tuition and fees due (see below). Students should withdraw from any classes in which they do not wish to be enrolled prior to the due date (first day of term) in order to avoid finance charges. Students will receive a refund only for classes from which they withdraw prior to or during the official refund period. See the academic calendar for exact withdrawal dates.

In compliance with the College’s fee payment policy, students WILL be canceled from any future enrollments if they have not paid in full by the final payment due date for the semester. A Bursar hold will be placed upon records and enrollment activity.

Students may choose to pay their tuition and fees prior to the beginning of the semester or by making monthly payments.

OPTION 1: Pay Fees by Due Date

Students may pay their tuition and fees prior to the beginning of the semester (see published fee due date) by the published fee due date, or on their date of enrollment, and incur no finance charges. Students enrolling after the beginning of the semester may pay their tuition and fees on their date of enrollment or go to the Bursar’s Office to find out the minimum payment due.

OPTION 2: Make Monthly Payments*

Students may choose to pay their fees on a monthly basis. Monthly payments will include a 2% finance charge on the outstanding balance. A Late Payment Charge of $20 will be applied to any payment not received by the 5th of each month. Payment in full will be required by the last monthly billing date for the semester.

In compliance with the College’s fee payment policy, students WILL be canceled from any future enrollments if they have not paid in full by the final payment due date for the semester. A Bursar hold will be placed upon records and enrollment activity.

Oklahoma City Community College does use the services of a collection agency for all past due accounts that remain unpaid after the end of the semester. Overdue account balances will be assessed all additional collection charges associated with the collection of the debt to include reasonable attorney’s fees, court costs and all other charges allowed by law. This may result in endangering your credit rating on a local and/or national level by being reported to all three credit bureaus (Equifax, TransUnion, Experian). Oklahoma City Community College also participates in the State of Oklahoma’s Warrant Intercept Program, authorized by House Bill No. 1314 of the State of Oklahoma in 1983. The Intercept System allows a state agency to take a debtor’s tax refund and apply it to their indebtedness, which may result in collection of debt many years in the future.

*Students choosing to pay tuition and fees on a monthly basis are required to comply with the payment schedule in order to enroll, or remain enrolled, in any future semesters.
