• Payment Options for Adult and Graduate Students

    Students in the College of Adult and Graduate Studies at Colorado Christian University have several options for paying tuition and fees for their coursework. Please review the options outlined below.

    Payment or payment arrangements for all tuition and fees charges are due in full the first day of the semester. If registration occurs after the first day of the semester, payment in full is due upon registration. If you are unable to pay the full amount upon registration, please contact the Service Central office to set up one of the following payment options. Failure to make payments as scheduled will result in finance charges assessed on the outstanding balance.

    CCU correspondence to students is primarily through e-mail. Students are responsible to keep their e-mail contact information up-to-date and to check their e-mail regularly for information regarding their CCU account.

    Students can access their billing statement online through their WebAdvisor online account. Students access WebAdvisor through the My CCU portal (student network log in required). In WebAdvisor, please click on "View Account and Make Payments" to view your account summary, including tuition and fee charges, pending financial aid, and payment history. You can also view your statement of account and make payments on an outstanding balance.

    Starting September 2014, students will receive an e-mail notification regarding their billing statement. E-Billing allows students to access their billing statement online rather than waiting for paper bills. Paper bills or statements will no longer be sent starting September 2014. For more information, please review the E-Bill web page.

    Full Payment Method

    Student pays the full semester charges (or the portion not covered by financial aid and other outside sources) at the time of registration.

    Payment can be made as follows:

    • Cash: Pay in person at the Service Central office. Do not mail cash.
    • Personal Check: Make your check payable to Colorado Christian University. Include your name, CCU ID number, current address, and phone number on the face of the check. For mailed payments, please mark the envelope “Attention Student Payments - Dept. 51101” for expedited processing.

For mailed payments, please mark the envelope “Attention Student Payments - Dept. 51101” for expedited processing.
    • Credit Card: Official Payments Corp. is an agent of the University contracted for the electronic processing of credit card payments.

You can either pay by accessing the secure online payment page on WebAdvisor (by selecting "View Account and Make Payments"), or by using a touch tone telephone and dialing a toll free number 866-480-6861. You will need to provide your checking/savings account number and the routing/transit number, which is a unique series of numbers that identifies your financial institution. Read our Online Payments FAQ (PDF) for more information.
    • Credit card convenience checks may be used as an electronic check payment. There is no service fee on any electronic check payment. Contact your credit card issuer to understand what fees it may charge for use of its convenience checks.
    • International payments: Please contact your Service Central specialist or e-mail StudentPayments@ccu.edu to discuss international payment method options.

    Third Party Deferred Payment Option for Employer Reimbursement Programs

    Many employers offer tuition reimbursement plans to employees continuing their education. Contact your company’s human resources or benefits department to see if this cost-saving option is available to you. Deferred payment enables you to carry a balance for up to one semester, interest free, while waiting for reimbursement from an employer or government agency. You must complete the Third Party Deferred Payment Option (PDF), and include a copy of your employer’s reimbursement policy. There is a $25 administrative fee to activate this plan. Each semester the plan must be updated with an additional $25 administrative fee.

    Veterans/GI Bill Benefits

    CCU is approved for federal veterans’ education benefits to qualified students. Applicants for these benefits may secure forms by contacting Service Central at VASupport@ccu.edu. Eligible students should keep in mind that benefits may not be received for a number of weeks after enrollment and should be prepared to meet University expenses until the veteran benefits arrive. Third Party Deferred Payment Option may be used for qualified students with GI Bill benefits.

    Automatic Monthly Payment Plan

    CCU offers students the option to pay their tuition and fees through a monthly payment plan called FACTS. Monthly payments will be automatically deducted from a personal bank account or credit card. The payment plan agreement can be set up for one semester or annually to allow students to budget their tuition costs monthly. Please note that to take advantage of the monthly payment plan you must complete the agreement before classes begin.

    Learn more about or sign up for the Automatic Monthly Payment Plan for students in our College of Adult and Graduate Studies.

    Cash by Class Plan

    The Cash by Class plan enables students who are paying with cash, check or credit card to enroll in all of their courses at the start of the semester without having to pay their balance in full at the time of registration. Payment for each course is due when the class begins. Students making payments on the Cash by Class plan will not accrue interest charges on their account. Please complete the Cash by Class Payment Plan (PDF) form to activate this plan. Cash by Class must be renewed each semester to remain current. There are no administrative fees to set up the Cash by Class Plan.

    Financial Aid Method

    To receive a financial aid award a student must first complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Financial Aid must be applied to the student bill. Please note: no financial aid funds can be disbursed without documentation of high school or GED completion. Overpayment will be refunded to the student. If financial aid does not pay the entire bill, the student is responsible to pay the remainder of the bill through either a Full Payment Method or a Monthly Payment Method.


    • Keep your e-mail contact information up-to-date, and check your e-mail inbox regularly.
    • Your current balance information is in your WebAdvisor account. Do not wait for a bill to make your payment.
    • Make sure your billing address is correct.
    • Students unable to meet their financial obligations to the University will not be allowed to register for future classes, and will not receive an official transcript or diploma.


    If your account has a credit balance, once all financial aid has been received and applied to your student account, your credit balance can be direct deposited to a bank account of your choice. For all CAGS undergraduate students in their first financial aid award year, any financial aid credit balance that remains after tuition and fees are covered will be refunded eight weeks after the semester start date. All other CAGS students will be refunded any financial aid overpayment after the drop deadline of their first semester course, typically the third week of the course. To request a direct deposit of the credit balance on your CCU account, simply log into your WebAdvisor account and click on “Bank Information” under the Financial Information heading. You will then be asked to enter your bank account information, which will electronically direct your refund to your personal bank account. More information can be found on the Credit Balance Refund FAQs (PDF).
