Payment made easy
You can pay your tuition and fees online or in person at our Student Accounts Office (located downstairs in the Administration Building). 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 the student’s responsibility to look online or verify with the Student Accounts Office, the payment deadlines for your group of classes. You will not receive payment deadline information when you speak to an advisor or see someone in another office.
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.
Don’t miss your deadline!
- Check your tuition payment deadline to avoid losing your classes.
- If you miss your deadline and your classes are dropped for non-payment, you will need to re-register for classes. We cannot guarantee seats will still be available if you have to re-register.
