Make a Payment
If you have charges that are not covered by financial aid or a third party benefit (like a 529 savings plan), you must cover your remaining out-of-pocket costs by:
- August 1 for the Fall semester
- January 5 for the Spring semester
- May 13 for the Summer term
You have two options to cover your remaining costs.
You can do both of these using CCCPay, an electronic bill payment system that is accessible through your MyColumbia portal in the MyFinancials tab.
CCCPay accepts payments via savings and checking accounts as well as Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express credit cards (note: you will be charged a 2.85% service charge for all debit and credit card payments).
Note: Any authorized parties—parents, spouses, guardians, or other third-party payers—who have been authorized by a student can access CCCPay through the Authorized Party Login page. You will need to disable pop-up blockers to access the page.
If a payment is returned on CCCPay, you will be notified, and a $30.00 Returned Payment Fee will be automatically processed from the account provided. The Returned Payment Fee will not show on your tuition account billing.
If the $30.00 Returned Payment Fee is returned, the payment will be rescheduled.
If a personal check payment submitted via mail is returned, a $30.00 Returned Payment Fee will be assessed on your tuition account and shown on your next statement. Fees are subject to change.
If your payment history shows multiple returned payments, you will be restricted from paying with ACH or check payments.
