Billing & Payments

See how easy and in-expensive it can be to attend Texarkana College.

Payment Deadlines

You must pay any outstanding balance by the payment deadline if:

  • You have not yet received and accepted a financial aid award offer.
  • Your registration bill exceeds your financial aid award offer.
  • You do not qualify for financial aid.

Payment is due once you register for classes.

Payment deadlines may be different for each part of term.

  • For example, if you are taking a 16-week class, the payment deadline might be one date. If you are also taking a class that does not start until later in the semester, those classes may have a different payment deadline.
  • It is important to note that Texarkana College does not mail bills or tuition/fee statements. We encourage you to pay in full or set up a payment plan immediately to avoid missing a payment deadline. You will be dropped from classes if not paid by the deadline.
