Tuition Statement - Generated Online Only

top

As soon as you enroll in classes, your registration/billing statement is ready. ECC will no longer mail registration/billing statements. Students can access their statement anytime by logging into the accessECC Student Portal and clicking on Student Account located in the Self-Service menu. Find the statement under Account Activity. Choose the desired term and click View Statement. Students are responsible for paying the amount due on their tuition statement by the corresponding due date each term.

Other Ways to Pay Bills

College Illinois

If you participate in College Illinois, you must bring a printed copy of your current benefits statement and a written authorization in order for the college to bill them on your behalf. This must be submitted to the Student Accounts Office, Bldg B, Room B151, ECC Campus, by the tuition due date to avoid being dropped for non-payment. The student is responsible for any charges that will not be covered by the plan. It is also important to check with the Student Accounts Office whenever schedule changes are made. This must be done every semester that the student attends. The college will submit an invoice to College Illinois after mid-term to ensure all registrations are complete prior to billing.

Trusts & 529 Plans (other than College Illinois)

If you are a recipient of a trust or participate in a 529 plan (other than College Illinois), it is your responsibility to contact the provider and request that they send a check to the college to pay for your tuition. The check should be made payable to ‘Elgin Community College’ and needs to arrive in the Student Accounts Office by the tuition due date to avoid being dropped for non-payment. Please make sure that your name and student ID number are referenced on the check. The student is responsible for any charges that will not be covered by the trust or plan. It is also important to check with the Student Accounts Office whenever schedule changes are made.

Chargebacks & Joint Agreements

If you live in another community college district, you must first visit that college to obtain either a chargeback or joint agreement form. This form must be turned into the Registration and Records Office when you enroll. A new form is required each term. View Joint Agreement Programs»

Third Party Sponsors

If your tuition will be paid for by a third party, you must obtain either a voucher or a letter on letterhead indicating the third party’s willingness to be billed for your classes. The letter must include the student name and address, billing instructions along with an authorizing signature from the third party. A new voucher or letter is required each term and must be turned into the Student Accounts Office, Bldg B, Room B151, ECC Campus, the same day you register to ensure you will not be dropped from your classes. The college will submit an invoice to third party sponsors after mid-term to ensure all registrations are complete prior to billing.

Employer Reimbursed Tuition

If your employer will be reimbursing you for your tuition, you must pay your account in full and submit the receipts to your employer.
