Tuition Payment Information

How to Pay

This page contains information for Academic students. If you are a Training student, the price of the individual course and payment details are listed on the course page.

Methods of Payment

The easiest way to pay is online through your MyMTC account.

Payments may be made online with an electronic check, VISA, American Express, MasterCard or Discover or by calling 803.732.5200. A 2.5% service fee will be applied to all card transactions used to pay tuition and fees. All transactions are processed as a credit card transaction. Tuition and fees may also be paid with cash, in-state checks, or money order. 

Payment Plans

Nelnet allows you to make automatic monthly payments toward the cost of a course instead of paying it as a lump sum.


NELNET is a tuition management plan that provides you with a low-cost option for budgeting tuition and fees. It is not a loan program. You have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The cost to budget monthly payments through NELNET is a $25.00 per semester nonrefundable NELNET Enrollment Fee. The NELNET Enrollment Fee and Down Payment are automatically deducted from your account immediately.

You may pay your tuition and fees in the following ways:

  • Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) - ACH payments are those payments you have authorized NELNET to process directly from your financial institution.
  • Credit Card – Your monthly payment will be automatically charged to the credit card designee.

Termination of NELNET Payment Plan

To terminate your NELNET Payment Plan, you must go to the Cashier's Office on any campus to sign a NELNET Change of Status form five business days prior to payment due date. Your plan cannot be terminated without your signature. Termination of your plan may be necessary should your Financial Aid Award change.

Upon your completion of the NELNET payment plan online, you will receive a confirmation email. Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full.

Tuition & Fees FAQs

Q: When is tuition due, and when are statements mailed?
A: Tuition and fees are due upon registration. Statements will not be mailed for current semester charges. You can view your current account balance at any time through MyMTC.

Q: I have never attended classes, why was I charged?
A: Payment will be required if you do not attend class and do not officially withdraw by submitting the Drop/Add/Withdrawal Form to the Student Records Office. If you do not withdraw, and your classes were held by financial aid, the aid will be removed, and you will be held responsible for the tuition and fees. Please remember to submit the Drop/Add/Withdrawal Form if your schedule needs to be changed to avoid any fees.

Q: I owe the college a past due balance and cannot pay it in full, what are my options?
A: You have 90 days to pay your balance in full. If a balance remains after 90 days, the account will be moved to collection status. Once in collection status, you will need to contact the Cashier's office to make a full payment.

Q: How do I get my financial aid refund?
A: Financial aid disbursements are refunded to you via BankMobile Disbursements, a technology solution, powered by BMTX, Inc.
