Paying for College

At Jackson College, the Student Financial Services process tuition payments and provide assistance with the FACTS tuition payment plan. They also answer general questions regarding balances, refunds and payment methods.

Payment Due Date

Payment, or acceptable payment arrangements, are due by a certain date for each semester.

  • Spring 2016 – Payment due date is Monday, May 16, 2016
  • Fall 2016 – Payment due date is Friday, Aug. 19, 2016

Students who do not pay by their payment due date, risk losing the spot in the class(es) they have registered for. JC does not guarantee that you will be dropped for non-payment.

Note: After the first day of the semester, payment is due immediately.


Payment Options

Students must use the payment options below, or a combination of, each semester to cover complete account balance:

  • Pay in Full
    •  In person at any of our centers (Central Campus, Hillsdale and JC @ LISD TECH)
    • Credit card payments can be made online via FACTS.
      • Note:  To ensure the security of student information, JC will utilize FACTS to process all credit card payments.
  • Sign up for the FACTS Payment Plan (available to all students)
  • Sign up for the FACTS Pending Aid Payment Plan (available to financial aid students only)
  • Submit Third Party Sponsorship (employer, State agency, etc. THIS IS NOT FINANCIAL AID)
  • Financial Aid
    • Financial aid and scholarship students should enroll in a Pending Aid FACTS payment plan if your award package will not cover your balance in full.
    • The $30 non-refundable enrollment fee will not be assessed until your account with FACTS has been activated. Your payment plan will not be activated until after your financial aid transmits and only if your award does not pay your account balance in full.
    • If you have an outstanding balance after financial aid transmits, you will be notified by FACTS and given the option to either pay the balance in full or have the FACTS payment plan automatically activated.

Due dates for payment, or acceptable payment arrangement, are set for each semester. Students who do not have payment arrangement in place by the payment due date, risk losing the spot in the class(es) they have registered for. JC does not  guarantee that you will be dropped for non-payment.  Dropping and withdrawing from courses is the responsibility of the student.

Returned Check Policy

The Business Office will notify and bill you if your check is returned by the bank for non-sufficient funds. A $25 returned check fee will be assessed to your student account for each returned check.

Returned checks should be redeemed immediately. Students who submit two checks which are returned to the College from the bank or fail to redeem returned checks promptly will be denied check writing privileges and be placed on a “cash only” basis for future transactions with the College.
