Paying for College

Payment Options

Calculator

Ocean County College has a pay as you go policy which means that payments in full are due on the day that a student registers. We offer the Tuition Payment Plan to students who would prefer to have their payments broken down into equal installments over a pre-set date period.

Students who do not pay their tuition bills may be dropped for non-payment.

Fall and Spring Semesters

Students have several payment options available to them. If a student is enrolled in less than 3 credits, payment is required in full at the time of registration. If you are paying in full with a credit/debit card, you may pay online through Ocean Connect Self Service (My Ocean-Ocean Connect – Student Finance) or by calling the Cashier’s Office at 732-255-0324.  

Please mail any check or money order payments to:

Cashier's Office
Ocean County College
2001 College Drive
Toms River, NJ 08754

Please be sure to include your student ID number or social security number on all check and money order payments.

Payments can also be made in person using cash, check, credit card or money order. Our business hours are: Monday-Thursday 8:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m., Friday 8:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

A charge of $25.00 will be assessed for all checks returned for non-sufficient funds.

Fall and Spring Tuition Payment Plan

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.

For example:

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.
