Paying Your Bill

When it comes to paying your tuition at Pima, you have options. 

Pima provides you 24/7 access to your student account through MyAccountManager so you can stay up to date with your charges and payments. Students are responsible for making sure tuition and fees are paid on time, regardless of who funds their education and owing money from a previous term will subject you to a financial hold. To view your student account activity, sign in to MyPima, and from the “Register & Pay” page, select MyAccountManager.

MyAccountManager is where you can make payments. Payment can be submitted up to the amount owed to your account. Once payment has been submitted, it cannot be canceled.

Web Checks are a FREE, fast, and simple online payment method allowing you to pay from your U.S. checking or savings account using your bank account number and routing number. Please note, if the account/routing numbers are not correct resulting in a failed payment, a $25.00 Returned Item Fee will be charged to the student account.

Debit or Credit Card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express) are accepted by our third-party processor, Paypath, for a 2.85% non-refundable service fee. Student account debit and credit card payments are only accepted online and are not accepted by mail, over the phone, or in person. 

International and Domestic Wire Payment:  Western Union provides a simple, reliable way to pay. Pay in your home currency, either online or by bank transfer, with competitive exchange rates. 

Personal checks, cashier's checks, and money orders are accepted by mail. Please allow 10 days for mailing time. Before mailing a check, be sure to review any applicable payment deadlines as notification of mailed payments does not hold registration or exempt a student from late charges. Online payment is the better option, especially if a due date is approaching.

  • Checks must contain the issuer’s printed name and address. 
  • Checks must be made payable to Pima Community College. 
  • Include your student identification number (A#) and College semester. College Employees will write student identification numbers on checks when students fail to add them.
  • If the check payment is returned by the bank, the payment will be reversed and a $25.00 Returned Item Fee will be charged to the student account. Returned payments may be forwarded to a collection agency or the Pima County Attorney's Office.
  • Second-party checks, out-of-country checks, post-dated checks, and payments for more than the account balance are not accepted.
  • It is the policy of Pima Community College to electronically convert and process paper checks received using the Automated Clearing House (ACH) Network, under the rules governed by the National Automated Clearing House Association (NACHA), and the Federal Reserve Bank. 

Checks should be mailed to:

Pima Community College
Attn: Accounts Receivable Services 
2202 West Anklam Road
Tucson, AZ 85709-0200

As a courtesy to our students, Pima will bill approved governmental and third-party sponsors for student tuition and fees. Qualifying sponsors include approved corporations, vocational rehabilitation offices, and government agencies including Military Tuition Assistance.

Student Responsibility

To ensure timely and accurate billing to a third party, sponsored students must complete the following:

  • A FERPA Student Authorization for Release of Educational Records to grant your sponsor access to your financial and academic information included in student account billing records.
  • Any amounts not covered by the third party must be paid by the applicable tuition payment deadline to avoid a student account hold.
Financial Aid may be used to cover some or all of your tuition and fees. If you have completed all the required acceptance steps and your estimated financial aid award will fund your tuition and fees, your registration should be protected and you will not need to enroll in a payment plan. See “Financial Aid Overview” for more information.
Paying tuition in full at one time isn't always an option but by enrolling in a payment plan, you can pay your tuition in smaller installments. Pima offers payment plans for fall, spring, and summer terms. Use the payment plan estimator to see how your payments will be scheduled based on your residency, credits, and enrollment. 

*Due to COVID-19 campus closures, please use our convenient online payment option*
