Payment Schedule

Registering early gives you the best selection of classes, can significantly reduce the wait time to see an advisor, and allows you to set up a payment plan that gives you up to three (3) months to pay for classes. You may register online through the MyTriton portal, in person at the Welcome Center, or by phone with the Call Center. Once you register for classes, you must pay your outstanding balance in full or make payment arrangements. Please review the following tuition payment schedules below:
