Pay Tuition

Pay your tuition by the due date! Missing the tuition deadline can mean missing out on the classes you wanted... even if you're already registered.

Tuition can be paid online or in-person at the Cashier's office in Bldg. 14.

Tuition will be applied electronically for students who have been awarded a financial aid grant or scholarship. Students receiving other tuition assistance should contact the Cashier's Office. Classes that have not been paid will be dropped to allow other students an opportunity to enroll.
If you are unable to pay tuition by the tuition deadlines: FACTS/Nelnet, a tuition payment plan, is available to students. For more details, take a look at the automatic payment plan information.  

Students enrolling with a WAIVER (staff, state employees, senior citizen -60 years or older, or SPRUCE) may not register until the date identified under the conditions of the applicable waiver. If a student registers prior to the allowed date, the waiver will not apply to the student's tuition calculation. For more information, call 253.566.5325.

How to Pay

  • In person. Stop by the Cashier's Office in Bldg. 14 between the hours of 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday. The college is closed every Friday during Summer quarter.
  • Online. Tuition payments can be made in ctcLink.
  • By mail. You may send your payment to the TCC Cashier's Office, Building 14 at 6501 South 19th Street, Tacoma, WA 98466. Be sure to include your Student ID number to insure proper payment. We do not recommend mailing a check unless you are sure it will arrive on time.
