Upon registration, all students are required to pay the entire balance of their accounts (after financial aid awards are considered) by either full payment or through the deferred payment plan. A $35 late registration fee is charged to all students registering on or after the first day of classes.

Columbia College offers several options for financial aid and scholarships. Visit the Financial Aid Web site for more information.

Outstanding balance from a previous semester

Until the balance is paid, the student will not be allowed to:

  • Register for any subsequent semester.
  • Obtain a transcript of academic work.
  • Apply for a residence hall room.

Fees are reviewed on an annual basis and are subject to change without notice.

Each semester's fees are due in full at the time of registration. Arrangements may be made to use a deferred payment plan.
