Tuition Payment Information

Student Account Information

When you register for classes, a student account associated with your student ID number is charged for tuition, fees, etc.  To access your account, log into the MyCalhoun Portal.  Once logged in, click on the Banner Self Service from the QuickLaunch Launchpad, then select the following:

  • Student
  • Student Account
  • Account Details for Term

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.


Payments

(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.

After each applicable payment deadline, schedules can be deleted for nonpayment of tuition and fees.  Students may not attend class if tuition or fees are unpaid.  A financial hold will be placed on the student’s account when there is any past due financial obligation to the college.  When there is a financial hold, the student will not be permitted to register for classes, receive transcripts, nor any other service from the college.

Credit or Debit Card

A student can make online student account payments with a credit or debit card. Calhoun accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express. The option to pay by credit or debit card is available online or in person only. Calhoun does not accept payments by phone. Once logged in to the MyCalhoun Portal,   click on the Banner Self Service from the QuickLaunch Launchpad, then select the following:

  • Click Pay Now button
  • Enter the Payment Amount and click Submit

The payment confirmation will be emailed to the email address entered or it can be printed once displayed on the screen. If you do not receive a confirmation, the payment has failed and payment must be resubmitted. Any future refunds will be refunded to the debit or credit card up to the total paid.

Cash or check Payments

Cash and check payments may be presented in person at the Decatur or Huntsville Campus during the Business Office hours of operation (see Office Hours and Phone Numbers page) or checks may be mailed but must be received by the payment deadline.

Financial Aid

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.
