If you have charges that are not covered by financial aid or a third party benefit (like a 529 savings plan), you must cover your remaining out-of-pocket costs by:

You have two options to cover your remaining costs.

You can either pay in full or establish a formal auto-debit payment plan. 

You can do both of these using CCCPay, an electronic bill payment system that is accessible through your MyColumbia portal in the MyFinancials tab.

CCCPay accepts payments via savings and checking accounts as well as Visa, Mastercard, Discover, and American Express credit cards (note: you will be charged a 2.85% service charge for all debit and credit card payments). 

Note: Any authorized partiesparents, spouses, guardians, or other third-party payerswho have been authorized by a student can access CCCPay through the Authorized Party Login page. You will need to disable pop-up blockers to access the page. 

Returned Payment

If a payment is returned on CCCPay, you will be notified, and a $30.00 Returned Payment Fee will be automatically processed from the account provided. The Returned Payment Fee will not show on your tuition account billing.

If the $30.00 Returned Payment Fee is returned, the payment will be rescheduled.

If a personal check payment submitted via mail is returned, a $30.00 Returned Payment Fee will be assessed on your tuition account and shown on your next statement. Fees are subject to change.

If your payment history shows multiple returned payments, you will be restricted from paying with ACH or check payments.
