Payment Options

Before classes start each semester, you need to pay your tuition or set up a payment plan. Use this helpful guide to find out more.

Payment Penalties

  • You must pay your tuition and fees on or before the payment deadline stated on your registration.
  • Late fees will be applied to your student account for each month during the semester that your tuition and fees aren't paid in full or have a payment plan.
  • You are not guaranteed placement when you reregister.

*Please visit Student Fees to learn more about mandatory fees the College charges Auraria Campus users each semester.


Setting up a payment plan with a down payment and monthly installments will prevent you from getting charged late fees. See the Payment Plan Options tab for more information.

Tuition Refund Policy

You may receive a full refund of your tuition and fees for any classes you drop and for any classes canceled by the College through the census date. The census date for standard classes is listed on the Academic Calendar. The census date for all classes can also be found online through your CCD Connect account.

No refunds or financial credits are given after the census date or for courses concentrated into one week or less. Financial Aid students may have your aid adjusted; check with the Financial Aid Office.

You should receive a refund through the BankMobile Disbursements refund process. In some cases, a refund will be credited back to the same credit card that was used to pay tuition.
