Lower Your Cost

On top of our already affordable classes, we offer ways to reduce your college costs even more.


 Financial Aid

To receive financial aid, you’ll need to complete a FAFSA and provide any required documentation. You’ll receive an award letter with instructions to follow, or you can review your award through our SOS portal.

If you need more help with finances, we can connect you to other available sources, which includes loans, scholarships and grants, and State of Texas exemptions and waivers. There is also assistance from Veterans Services and Career Services.

 Open Books

How about classes with free or inexpensive textbooks and course materials? Look for Open Books, Open Books Plus, and Open Books Low $ courses in the Open Books Program when you register. These classes will make your education even more affordable.

 

Pay for Your Classes


 Installment Payment Plan Schedule

Can’t pay all at once? Pay over time with an installment payment plan (IPP). These are available for fall, spring, and summer semesters. You can get started setting up a payment plan online or at any campus business office.

After registering, you’ll pay a percentage of the total tuition as a down payment. You’ll also pay a $25 service charge prorated over all installments and $25 for any late payments.

If you withdraw from any classes, your payments are still due on time. If you have a refund, we will recalculate what you owe, and your future installments will reflect these changes.

An installment payment plan (IPP) is available at any Campus Business Office and on the SOS Web based registration system under the Student Account Suite. When initiating the IPP the student will be required to pay a percentage of eligible tuition and charges. There is a $25 non-refundable setup charge which is prorated over the initial and future installments. The IPP will have different additional percentage payments on specified dates for each term. The College assesses a non-refundable charge of $25 for each late payment. Through the Student Account Suite, students may establish an automatic payment from their selected method of payment using a credit card, checking or savings account. Students who utilize the IPP must follow the regulations for withdrawals and refunds. Students who withdraw from or add one or more classes still must pay the installments on time. The system will recalculate any changes to the future dated installments. No installment payment plan is available for Barnes & Noble books, supplies or cash advances. The Financial Aid section describes other forms of financial assistance. Installment Plans must be paid in full before another installment plan can be initiated.

Receiving refunds for withdrawal from one or all courses does not relieve the student of making all payments under the IPP when due and payable. Students electing to use the IPP are subject to regulations regarding withdrawals and refunds (refer to the refund page for details). See the San Jacinto Community College District Catalog regarding “Refund Policy” and “Withdrawal” for further information.
