Tuition Payment Schedule: Registration is not complete until you have paid your outstanding balance in full or made payment arrangements (see options below):
- If you fail to make payment arrangements within the specified timelines, you may be dropped from your selected classes.
- If you are dropped from a class, the college will send an email notifying you of the need to re-enroll.
- If you re-enroll and again do not follow the 2-day payment deadline, you may continue to be dropped for non-payment.
- If your have been dropped from a class, and the date to re-enroll has passed, you may petition for reinstatement.
College Scorecards in the U.S. Department of Education's College Affordability and Transparency Center can be used to find out more about a college's affordability and value.
Registering early gives you the best selection of classes, can significantly reduce the wait time to see a counselor, 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:

*The payment grace period ends approximately three weeks prior to the start of the semester. After that, tuition is due within two days (48 hours) of the date that you register. If you are unable to make payment or setup a payment plan, your classes may be dropped and you would have to register again.
