Tuition/Fees and Refunds

All tuition and fees must be paid in full by the published due date for each semester, unless a payment plan is established and the initial payment made (see *) or financial aid is pending on your account.  The college also accepts vouchers and purchase orders from any person or agency that provides a form or letter authorizing Atlantic Cape to bill them for tuition and fees. Cash, checks, money orders, American Express, Discover, Visa, and MasterCard are accepted forms of payment.  Checks and money order must be made payable to Atlantic Cape Community College.  E-checks and the above credit cards are accepted online via Self Service. *Payment plans are available for the Fall and Spring semester only.  See payment plans for more information. 

A student is considered registered and liable for tuition and fees unless the student withdraws in writing or through Self Service before the semester start date.  Making registration changes, failing or withdrawing from courses may result in the return of financial aid, scholarships or third party sponsor payments.  Any balance becomes the responsibility of the student.

Tuition and fees are charged on a per-credit basis.  Costs for a course may include laboratory fees, plus mandatory insurance fees for full-or part-time students.  For a current listing of tuition and fees, visit or contact the Office of the Bursar at
