Tuition and fees are established by the DCC Board of Trustees and are subject to change by its action. No deposit is needed to register for classes; payment in full is required by the stated Tuition Due Date, prior to the start of each semester. Students are responsible for ensuring that their bills are completely covered by payment, authorized financial aid, payment plan or a third party. Students who do not pay their accounts in full by the due date will be dropped from classes for non-payment and will not be able to reregister until full payment is made.
To help you meet your educational expenses, Dutchess Community College offers the e-Cashier Payment Plan as a convenient way to pay your semester charges. This is not a loan program. There are no interest or finance charges assessed and there is no credit check. This is a semester-based plan and is easy to enroll in through your myDCC account. Once you set up your plan, payments are made automatically. Further information about the e-Cashier plan can be obtained from the Office of Student Financial Services or on the web through your myDCC account.
