Tuition and Fees

After completing the registration process, a student must pay tuition fees either by Internet registration systems or in the Gadsden State Business Office at one of the following locations: East Broad Campus, Ayers Campus, Gadsden State Cherokee, or the McClellan Center. Registration is not considered confirmed until all tuition/fees are paid in full. Gadsden State accepts the following types of payment: cash, checks drawn on domestic banks in U.S. dollars only, money orders, travelers’ checks, and Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit cards. The McClellan Center and Gadsden State Cherokee do not accept cash or credit card payments. The Internet registration system is available to accept payments by Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express credit cards and can also provide the student with a current account balance. Checks must have the student’s identification (I.D.) number, or Gadsden State personnel will write the student’s I.D. number on the check. A student who prefers not to have his/her I.D. number on the check may pay tuition fees by cashier's check, money order, or cash, except for "mail-in" or "drop-in" payments. Students in default of any indebtedness to the College will not be allowed to register, graduate, receive transcripts, or transfer Gadsden State credits.

Financial assistance to attend GSCC is available to qualified United States citizens and eligible non-citizens. For information about such help, students should see the "Financial Assistance" section of this catalog.
