How and When Do I Pay My Tuition and Fees?

Tuition and fees should be paid to the Cashier in the Fiscal Control Office located in the Student Services Building on the Eastern Arizona College campus. Payment should be made at the time of registration.

You may pay by phone, online,  or in person with your VISA, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover card. Note: Debit/Credit card payments will be assessed a 2.75% non-refundable fee by the card processor. Students can avoid paying debit/credit card fees by choosing the ACH (E-check) payment option available online through Gila Hank. You may also mail a check or money order to Cashier, Eastern Arizona College, Thatcher, AZ 85552-0769. Checks, drafts, and postal or express money orders should be made payable to Eastern Arizona College.

Students may also choose to enroll in an online payment plan managed by Nelnet Business Solutions. Those choosing the payment plan option pay an enrollment fee of $25 and are then able to spread their tuition, dorm and meal plan expenses over several months. Payment plans are accessible through Gila Hank by going to the "Pay Tuition/Fees" tab and choosing the "Payment Plan" link. Payment plan options include ACH (E-check) and debit/credit card (card processing fees do apply).

Registration is not complete until all tuition and fees and outstanding debts or balances are paid, or one is successfully enrolled in an online payment plan.

If you expect to receive financial aid you need to work closely with the Financial Aid Office to seek and receive financial assistance.  If you are seeking aid for the fall semester, you are advised to begin the application process early the previous spring.

Classes will be automatically canceled if tuition and fees are not paid by the fourth Monday in July for fall semester and the second Friday in December for spring semester. The Academic Calendar sections of the class schedule and catalog specify the dates by which all fees or financial aid arrangements are due. If payment is not received by these dates, your registration will be canceled. If your registration is canceled, you may not be able to get back into all your classes. Don't let this happen to you! Be sure all financial arrangements are made by the date due.
