Payments

Course registration is contingent upon the payment of all amounts due to the College. Students owing a balance of more than $50 cannot register for courses. Once registered for a term, payment or acceptable arrangements must be made prior to the start of the term. If a student registers after the term starts, payment is due immediately upon registration.

How do I pay my bill?

Online

The quickest and easiest way to make a payment is by paying online via the MyCC web portal.  This is available 24 hours a day and can be done in 4 easy steps:

  1. Log into MyCC
  2. Click “Finances” tab
  3. Click “My Account Balance"
  4. Click “Make a Payment”

VISA, MasterCard and Discover are accepted.

Mail

You can also mail us your payment. Checks and money orders must be made payable to Cambridge College and include your college ID number.

In Person

During business hours you can make a payment in person at our main campus, 1000 Massachusetts Avenue, Cambridge, Mass.  Payments are not accepted at any other college location.

Wire Transfer

Please contact our office if you are interested in making a payment via wire transfer.

Payment Plan

The Bursar's Office can work with you to establish a payment plan that allows you to pay your tuition and fees in up to four payments in the fall and spring terms, and two payments in the summer term. Please contact the Bursar's Office.

Resources to pay for your education

  • Financial aid (federal students loans, scholarships, etc.)
  • Employer tuition assistance programs or third party sponsor - acceptable if payment is made directly to Cambridge College and is not contingent upon grades. Please contact the Bursar's Office prior to the beginning of the term so that an invoice can be generated.
  • Veteran's benefits - If you are eligible for veteran's educational benefits, please contact the Bursar's Office to discuss your own particular situation.
  • Using your own funds - See "how do I pay my bill?" above.

When payments are due

Bills are mailed at least 30 days prior to the start of the term. Payments are to be remitted on or before the due date indicated on the statement (this date is typically one week prior to the term start date):

  Payment Due Late Payment Fee Assessed
Fall 2016 August 25 August 30, weekly thereafter
Spring 2017 January 10 January 13, weekly thereafter
Summer 2017 May 29 June 1, weekly thereafter
Late Payment Fee

Students will be assessed a late payment fee if acceptable payment arrangements are not made by the due date indicated on the statement. Acceptable payment arrangements include payment in full, pending financial aid, approved third-party billing (i.e. Veterans) and an active and current payment plan with the Bursar's Office.

Figuring Your Tuition Each Term

On our website, go to your Cambridge College location, click on your academic program, and see current tuition rates posted on the Tuition tab. Multiply the number of credits you are taking by the per-tem rate. (In some cases there may be other expenses in addition to course tuition.)

Always refer to your account on MyCC for the most up-to-date balance information.

Graduation Clearance

All tuition and other charges must be paid in full by the published graduation clearance deadline in order to receive graduation clearance from the Bursar’s Office.

Non-Payment

You will not be able to register until you have paid your bill. Once acceptable payment arrangements have been made, we can clear you to register online. Students with a balance will have a Bursar restriction ("hold") placed on their account. This restriction prevents access to grades, transcripts (both official and unofficial); diplomas, and certificates. Students are notified of impending restriction via email to their Cambridge College email addresss.

The College will make every effort to work out repayment plans. In the event a balance remains outstanding, student debts will be submitted to a collection agency if payment is not received. In such cases, the student is liable for any court costs and collection agency fees. Collection agency fees may total up to 40% of the outstanding bill, as allowed by Massachu­setts law. Cambridge College reserves the right to report account information to a credit bureau.
