About Online Payments
If students fail to pay their student account balance or any monies due and owed to Texarkana College by the scheduled due date, and fail to make acceptable payment arrangements to bring their account to current, Texarkana College may refer their delinquent account to a collection agency. Student is responsible for paying the collection agency fee which may be based on a percentage of delinquent account, together with all costs and expenses, including reasonable attorney’s fees, necessary for the collection of the delinquent account. The delinquent account may be reported to one or more of the national credit bureaus.

Texarkana College allows students to enroll in a payment plan to pay their tuition and fees for the current academic term in installments. This payment plan option is available to all students enrolled in regular academic semesters (fall, spring, and summer) and in subterm modules that fall within those semesters. All student payment plans are set up online using the myTC student portal and cannot be set up in person.

For password or login assistance, contact the Service Desk at 903-823-3030.

Texarkana College requires the payment plan to be paid off in full no later than the end of the semester.  A student who fails to make full payment for their balance due, including incidental fees, by the final payment due date will be prohibited from registering for classes until the balance due is paid in full.  A student who fails to make payment prior to the end of the semester may be denied credit for the work done that semester.

The payee (Texarkana College) reserves the right to withdraw the student from class if the Note (balance due) is not paid in full by the final payment due date.  If the Promiser (student) is withdrawn and subsequently pays the balance due in full, the Promiser may petition the Registrar, through Enrollment Services, for reinstatement.  Students who default on an installment plan may have future installment plan privileges revoked by Texarkana College or Herring Bank.

To set up a payment plan using College Green via Herring Bank:

  • Go to my.texarkanacollege.edu
  • Log in and go to the Student tab
  • Select Billing and Payments from the menu
  • Look for the Setup a Payment Plan heading
  • Click My Account Balances to update your account balance
  • Select the Year and Term from the dropdown
  • Click Setup a Payment Plan

If one of the other methods is not convenient, students can pay in person at the Student Accounts window located downstairs in the Administration Building on campus.

We accept the following methods of payment in person:

  • Cash
  • Check
  • Money Order
  • VISA
  • MasterCard

If you have financial aid and you have received notification from our Financial Aid office that your award has been processed, you should be able to view these awards online. Once your awards have been finalized, Financial Aid will process this onto your Student Account. You will not have to come on campus to take paperwork from one office to another as you did in the past. This process in now online and your financial aid will post to your account as a payment against your tuition/fee charges.

You should go online to review your account to make sure your charges and financial aid have posted properly. If there is an issue you can notify the proper office regarding your question. If your financial aid award is more than your charges, you will receive your refund onto our new Higher One Card. (See Refund Section)

Check Your Financial Aid Status on the Financial Aid portal.

Payments using exemptions and waivers
State law requires that students who receive exemption and/or waivers to tuition and fee charges make due progress toward the completion or a degree or certificate in order to continue receiving benefits. At Texarkana College, students receiving exemptions and/or waivers to tuition and fee charges must maintain all requirements listed in the Financial Aid Standards of Academic Progress (FA SAP).

Payments using third party referrals
If you have a Third Party paying for your tuition (for example, Texas Rehab, WIA, or others), we must have the paperwork (referral) from the agency in order to post that to your account. It is your responsibility to make sure the agency has provided this document to the Texarkana College Business Office by the deadline of your payment.

Once the Business Office has your referral, it will be posted to your Student Account as a payment against your tuition/fee charges – depending on what your Third Party agrees to pay.

You should go online to review your Student Account to make sure your charges and Third Party payments have posted properly. If there is an issue you can notify the Business Office regarding your question or your Third Party if needed.

Refunds

To be eligible for a refund, students must officially drop individual courses or completely withdraw from the College by the deadline in the Refund Schedule. Students may find the specific dates for the Refund Schedule online for each term. Specific provision of the Texas Administrative Code, Title 19, Part I, Chapter 21, Subchapter A, Rule 21.5 “Refund of Tuition and Fees at Public Community/Junior and Technical Colleges,” governs the refund schedule. Only the Texas Legislature or the Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board, authorized by the Legislature, can alter this schedule.

Certain fees are not refundable. Please check with the Student Accounts Office for specific fees. A class day is defined as any day which classes are held at the College – not just the particular class you are enrolled in and have dropped – (classes are normally Monday through Friday).

The College will process refunds only after completion of all other registration responsibilities.

To make a refund choice, log in to your myTC account. You have two choices when you log in:

  1. Have your refund go to your own personal bank account; or
  2. Have your refund go to your new myTCmoney card issued by Herring Bank.

If you choose the student checking account offered by Herring bank, your student refund card will be mailed to you (the address on file with Texarkana College). Please make sure you keep your address current and if you move, notify Herring Bank and the Enrollment Services office at Texarkana College.

Unlike grant aid, Texarkana College disburses all student loans in two payments per semester rather than just one. Students will receive refunds from the first half of their loans a little over a month after school begins. Refunds for the second half of student loans will occur shortly after midterm.

Grant and scholarship aid disbursements will not be affected by this change.

The College will process refunds only after completion of all other registration responsibilities.

  • 100% refund – Prior to the first class day (less $15 matriculation fee)
  • 70% refund – First through fifteenth class day
  • 25% refund – Sixteenth through twentieth class day

The Official “Last Day to Drop” is not the same as dropping a class and being eligible for a refund. Contact Student Accounts for dates applicable to your semester and drop date to see if you might be eligible for a refund. Dates and percentages vary depending on the length of the semester.

Any term other than a 16-week term will have refund dates adjusted according to state refund policies.

Please look online for term specific refund dates or contact Student Accounts.

If you are on the Installment Payment Plan and have no made all installments, your refund may apply to any outstanding payments.
