The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA) is printed in the General Catalog. The intent of the Act is to define the types of information about students which may be released without their prior consent. An Authorization to Release or Withhold Information Form can be completed in the Admissions Office which serves as student consent for records to be released to a parent, legal guardian, other tuition providers, or other indicated individuals. This form may also be used to opt out of directory information disclosure.
Please refer to the semester specific ‘Important Dates’ information for tuition payment deadlines
Students may make arrangements for outstanding balances on their student account to be paid in several ways.
Calhoun allows students to access their MyCalhoun account 24 hours a day. Use this site to view your account balance details for the term, make payments to your balance, or setup a payment plan.

Mail checks payable to Calhoun Community College to:
Calhoun Community College
PO Box 2216
Decatur, AL 35609-2216
Please ensure that a correct physical address, phone number, and Driver’s License number are presented on the check as well as the student’s ID number on the memo line of the check. In the event your check is returned from the bank, your account will be assessed a $30 return check fee.
For payments made by check, any applicable refund will be placed on hold for a period of 30 days from date of the payment to ensure the check is honored prior to issuing any refund.
Calhoun has partnered with TouchNet to provide payment plan options for tuition and fees. The only cost to enroll is a $40 nonrefundable enrollment fee. All down payments and enrollment fees are processed immediately with a credit/debit card. Regularly scheduled payments will process on the 20th of the month. Visit the payment plan page for more information about the payment plan, and payment plan details.
Students who intend to use financial aid to pay tuition and fees must complete all financial aid processes by the due date. Financial aid awards appear as authorized aid on your student account once you have completed all financial aid requirements and accepted your awards. You will also need to ensure that you will have enough financial aid to pay your balance. Any remaining balance that will not be covered by financial aid MUST be paid by the due date to avoid deletion of your schedule. If you have any questions about your financial aid, contact Student Financial Services.
