Paying Your Bill
Pima offers many payment options for students taking both credit and noncredit courses.
Students can pay online, in person, by mail, using financial aid, and/or veterans benefits.
Pima Community College is committed to providing students and their families a range of options for paying educational expenses. For many years, we have accepted debit and credit card payments and paid the processing charges imposed by the credit card companies. As the use of these cards and the transaction fees have increased, the processing charges have become a significant expense and, as a public institution, we believe it is in the best interest of our students and Pima County to use educational dollars in the most efficient way.
Effective May 1, 2019, the nonrefundable service fee assessed on each debit/credit card transaction made through MyAccountManager will increase to 2.85% ($3.00 minimum). The fee is being charged by our third-party processor, PayPath. This arrangement enables the College to continue to provide students with a debit/credit card payment option while reducing the overall cost of payment processing. The service fee ensures the cost of using debit and credit cards is carried only by the students using them rather than being shared by all students.
The College will continue to accept the following payment methods that do not incur a service fee:
- E-Check (ACH)
- Paper Check
- Money Order
- Cashier's Check
A payment plan may help you pay your bill by allowing you to pay in installments, rather than all at once.
Use the payment plan estimator to help understand how your payments will be scheduled based on your residency, credits and when you enroll in the plan.
*Please note the $10.00 Payment Plan Enrollment Fee is non-refundable.
Your MyPima MyAccountManager allows you to pay bills online, and keep track of your account status. You can even use MyAccountManager to authorize parents or other individuals to review your account and submit payments.
Student Account Holds
It is important to stay current with your account. If you owe Pima money from a previous term, you will be subject to a student account hold barring you from registering for classes or receiving your academic transcripts.
When in doubt, contact student accounts to find answers to your questions about paying your bill at Pima Community College.
