*Minimum payment requirements that must be met by the due dates to avoid an administrative drop of all courses includes one or more of the following:

  1. Full payment online through e-Services / My Online Account on the Current Students Web Page; or in person at one of the College Bookstores; or by mail. (Payment must be received and posted to your student account by the due date.)
  2. Enrollment in the Nelnet (NBS)/FACTS Automatic Payment Plan online (credit card or ACH bank draft).  Learn more about SCC payment options.
  3. Financial aid application processed by the Dept. of Education and on file at the College.  Read more info on applying for financial aid at SCC.
  4. Payment in the form of scholarships, third party authorization, or tuition waivers reflected on the student's account that equals at least 15% of the tuition and fee balance or $300 whichever is less. (15% or $300 minimum award will save registration but will not prevent assessment of a late fee if account remains unpaid as of the 30th business day of the term.)
  5. Down payment of 15% of tuition and fee charges, or $300, whichever is less. (Down payment will save registration but will not prevent assessment of a late fee if account remains unpaid as of the 30th business day of the term.)

It is recommended that students exercise the following options:

  • File a 2014-2015 FAFSA online as soon as possible; or
  • Enroll in the Nelnet Business Solutions, formerly FACTS Management Co., Automatic Payment Plan; and
  • Monitor account/financial aid information accessed by logging in with Student Tech ID and PIN through e-Services / My Online Account on the Current Students Web Page. When you retrieve your account information, after tuition and fees have been posted, you will receive a "STOP" or "GO" message. "STOP" means that you have not met the financial requirements necessary to remain enrolled. "GO" means that, based on current information, you have met the requirements to remain enrolled. If you believe that you have met the minimum payment requirements and received the "STOP" message in error, you MUST send an e-mail to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it IMMEDIATELY.
  • Check your South Central e-mail messages regularly for important announcements. Messages may also be sent to students' personal e-mail accounts if an e-mail address is provided.

TUITION AND FEE STATEMENTS WILL NOT BE MAILED
STUDENTS ARE REQUIRED TO VIEW ACCOUNT BALANCES ONLINE
PLEASE NOTE: Individuals who have registered for courses at SCC but subsequently change their plans and choose not to attend MUST NOT ASSUME that their courses have been dropped based on this policy. Certain payment criteria may have been met that prevented their classes from being cancelled. They will then be responsible for dropping the courses they are registered for. Individuals will be held financially obligated for those classes that are not dropped by the fifth day of the term. (Summer Session classes have a shorter drop period.  Please refer to the Student Policies at http://southcentral.edu/academic-policies/drop-add-withdraw.html
