Deferred Payment Process

The Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) is designed to give students an opportunity to pay tuition and mandatory fees in 4 payments. Students who are in good financial and academic standing may apply for this assistance.

There is a $30.00 service fee for each semester used. The $30 processing fee, any special fees, past due balances, Blue Cross Insurance, etc. must be included with the first DPP installment. DPP must be approved and set up before you will be allowed to pay with a partial payment. Tuition and mandatory fees are the ONLY charges split into 4 installments.

***** Deferred Payment Plans are not offered during the Summer Semester ***


Applications must be received 3 days before the deadline to pay your bill for the semester to avoid the loss of enrolled courses. For deadline information see page 10 of the Student Guide.

Applications are accepted throughout the registration period each semester. Our application process is now done through MyHC. Please log into MyHC, click on payment and account information and complete the application. Once your application is complete and submitted, watch your student e-mail for more information. It is the responsibility of the student to notify Student Business Services of any name or billing address changes.

Please do not estimate the payment amount. You will not be able to pay your bill unless DPP is in place and the 1st payment is paid in full through the pay option on MyHC or at the cashiers counter on the Donaldson Campus or by mailing a check with a copy of the most current registration bill.

Advance Payment

Any portion of a payment that is in excess of the amount of the DPP installment due will be applied to other current debts. The Main Cashiers Office must be notified when paying any DPP or other charges in advance.

For question regarding the Deferred Payment Plan (DPP) please contact Business Services: 406-447-6921.
