Ocean County College offers a payment plan that divides the tuition and fee payments into equal installments, after pending financial aid and scholarships are considered, and the initial deposit. At the time of registration, the student should sign up for the payment plan, and set their due dates. The earlier a student registers, the greater the number of due dates will be available. The first payment plus the contract fee will be due upon setting-up of the plan.
If the student registers on April 4, he/she will have 5 payment dates available. The due dates will be 4/4, 7/4, 8/4, 9/4 and 10/4. The 4/4 payment will be a starting deposit and the contract fee. The remaining four payments will be 1/4 of the remaining balance each.
If the student registers on August 10, he/she will have 3 payment dates available. They will be 8/10, 9/10 and 10/10. The first payment will be 1/3 of the tuition plus the contract fee. The remaining two payments will be 1/2 of the remaining balance.
Final payment due dates cannot extend past October 31. If the due date falls on a weekend or holiday, payment must be made online. Late payments will incur a $20 late payment fee.
If you registered for classes via Student Planning, Tuition Payment Plans are available on-line by logging into Ocean.edu, clicking on My Ocean, Ocean Connect, Financial Information, Student Finance and Pay for Registration. Additionally one can visit the Cashier’s Office or fax the PDF form (see Paying For College) to 732-864-3847. After the form is faxed, please contact Cashiers at 732-255-0324 to make your first payment. All remaining payments can be made on Ocean Connect, at the Cashier’s office or by mail. Please mail checks a week ahead of the due date to ensure they are received by the due date, to avoid a late payment fee.
