Fall Payment Plans

A payment plan allows you to pay your tuition for credit classes in installments.  If you need to pay your tuition in installments, visit your college’s Business/Cashier’s Office to set up a payment plan. You can also set up installments online through eConnect. Please note that you may pay tuition in installments only during the Fall and Spring semesters.

Flex Term or Online Classes

It’s important to note if you’re taking Flex Term classes, the dates listed above might not apply to you — you should definitely check with the Business/Cashier’s Office for details. Additionally, if sitting in a classroom for a full 16 weeks doesn’t appeal to you, Flex Term or online classes might be the way to go, so you can still earn a few extra credits without a 16-week, in-person commitment. But don’t just take our word for it — browse the DCCCD Fall 2019 schedule to get a full sense of your options.

Why Can’t I Register for This Class Online?

There are a number of reasons why you may not be able to register for a class, but don’t fret — that’s why we are here. Some reasons include: You haven’t completed TSI assessment testing, you have academic or financial blocks, you haven’t submitted transcripts, you have fewer than 12 hours of college-level credit or you haven’t met the prerequisite for a class. When in doubt, meet with an advisor.

Why Do I Need to Send My Transcript?

We need your transcripts to see what courses you have taken at other institutions. One of the primary reasons for this is because many courses have prerequisites that must be met before you can register. Your transcripts are the main way we find out if you’ve taken those prerequisites elsewhere before enrolling in one of the colleges of DCCCD. Transcripts are evaluated by DCCCD Admissions/Registrar’s offices, and you will need to have your transcripts sent to the college you plan to attend. (Still have questions about transcripts? Check out some of our frequently asked questions about transcripts and evaluation.)
