Make a Payment
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:
- August 1 for the Fall semester
- December 28 for the Spring semester
- May 13 for the Summer term
You have two options to cover your remaining costs.
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 2.75% service charge for all debit and credit card payments). On June 1, 2022, the debit and credit card payment service charge will increase to 2.85%.
Note: Any authorized parties—parents, spouses, guardians, or other third-party payers—who 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.
