How to Pay Tuition

Coastal Alabama Community College accepts e-check and debit and/or credit cards (Discover, Visa, American Express and MasterCard). If at any point a check is returned against a student’s account, all classes and dorms will be cancelled, and the check will be treated as a nonpayment for services. A service charge will also be applied to the student’s account. In the event of delinquent student payments, no college credits, transcripts, or diplomas shall be issued or released. A student with a delinquent account shall not be enrolled in subsequent semesters, and all accounts will be turned over to a collection agency. The student will be responsible for all associated collection fees.

Tuition Payment Portal

Please Note: Students will log into the Tuition Payment Portal using the "Students and Staff" button.  Parents, guardians, and any other authorized users log into the Tuition Payment Portal using the "Authorized User" button.  Parents, guardians, or employers require student permission through the student's authorized user process. If you have any questions about the system, please send an e-mail to

Tuition Payment Plan

Coastal Alabama Community College has a tuition payment plan for those needing assistance. Through these plans the student pays at least one-half of the total term charges plus a $40 enrollment fee no later than the tuition payment deadline for the current semester registration. The payment plan can be setup through the students OneACCS portal under the Student Account Center.

Failure to meet the terms of this agreement may entitle Coastal Alabama Community College to (1) declare the full balance plus late fees immediately due and payable by law, (2) refuse subsequent registration for any classes and/or drop current classes, (3) deny future enrollment in any payment plan, and (4) withhold grades, diplomas, or transcripts from being released until the unpaid balance is paid in full (including all attorney fees, legal expenses, and other collection costs). A Collection Fee up to 30% will be added to the balance due after 90 days by the collection company. Coastal Alabama Community College currently utilizes the services of Conserve and Williams & Fudge for collection of delinquent debt.

Cost of Attendance (COA) - An average figure used to determine financial aid eligibility.

Cost of attendance is not a bill and not an award offer. COA is provided for planning purposes only and is a good faith estimate of the total costs to attend college. COA includes direct costs (billed by the College) such as tuition and indirect costs (not billed by the College), such as transportation, housing, food, personal and miscellaneous costs. COA figures are estimates and are subject to change. 

Cost of Attendance (COA) minus the Expected Family Contribution (EFC) from the FAFSA equals the unmet or financial need for need-based (Pell grant) financial aid programs. 

Please visit the Net Price Calculator for additional Cost of Attendance information.
