Tuition and Fee Payments

All tuition and fees must be paid in full or students must be signed up and current on a payment plan through self service before any future enrollment can be processed.  As soon as a student enrolls in classes, they can view their student account through self service.  One week before classes start students are able to make payments or set up payment plans on their student account. Students can always make payments directly to the business office during regular office hours by calling 620-276-9576, or 620-276-9619.

Tuition And Fees Refund Policy

Payment Of Obligations

Students are expected to make prompt payment of all college financial obligations such as tuition and fees, housing, food, special fees, library fines and loans. MasterCard and VISA cards are accepted for payments.

  • All existing financial obligations must be paid before enrollment will be allowed for the subsequent semester or summer session.
  • If a student leaves the college with unpaid accounts, his/her academic records will be placed on hold and no academic transcripts will be issued until the account is cleared.
  • Graduating students must clear all outstanding accounts before their diplomas will be issued.
  • Holds will be placed on records of students who have defaulted on Federal Student Loans received while attending GCCC. No academic transcripts will be issued until the default status is resolved.
  • To avoid registration delays a student, relying on financial aid to pay college costs, is responsible for contacting the Financial Aid Office and having all necessary forms and documentation completed before registration.

Residence Hall Costs

The Residence Hall Contract is a room and board contract. The cost includes actual room rent and food services. This amount is subject to change. Students interested in living in the Residence Halls should telephone the Residential Life Office at (620)276-9516 for current costs, contracts and additional information. Residential Life web page.

Textbook Costs

Textbooks are part of student fees that each student pays on a per credit hour basis. The college has partnered with Cengage and most courses have adopted e-textbooks or digital courseware. If your course uses Cengage e-textbooks or digital courseware, you will access those resources through your Canvas course link: you do not need to purchase a textbook or access code from the bookstore. Students taking online courses will have their e-textbooks embedded into the course and may access them through the Canvas course link.

Students can identify which texts will be used by searching for courses at the Broncbuster Bookstore website.  If the text publisher on the website is listed as "Cengage" and/or the text purchase is listed as "Optional," the e-book will be provided for you in your Canvas course with no additional purchase needed.  Students who are taking classes which do not use Cengage resources will still need to purchase their textbooks.

Transcript Fees

Students will be charged $5 for each official transcript requested or $5 for each faxed transcript. Transcripts will not be issued until payment is received. Transcripts will be sent by Federal Express only if an authorized account is provided, or if payment is made in advance to cover each transcript fee and actual express costs.

Returned Payment Policy

If a payment made payable to the college is returned by a bank for any reason, the student's records will be placed on hold until the financial obligations are paid in full.  The student will be charged a $20.00 returned payment fee for each returned payment.
