Payment Plans

ECC payment plans keep money matters simple!

There's no more convenient way to pay educational expenses and manage your budget. Payment plans are not loan programs. No interest or finance charges added. Instead, payments are automatic—set them and forget them. A $30 non-refundable service fee per semester applies to use payment plans.
