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.

Enrollment Benefits


  • Enroll in a payment plan so you can pay your balance in installments
  • View your current payment plan status
  • Automatic payments using a credit card, debit card, or electronic check
  • Receive email reminders about upcoming payments
  • Receive email notifications as your plan adjusts to changes in your account status

Eligibility Requirements

As classes are dropped and added, the payment plan balance will be adjusted automatically. An email with the new payment amount will be sent to the email address set up on the payment plan. A notification will be sent via email and the postal service for any payment that is returned/denied for any reason. Review payment policies
