Paying for College

Payment Options


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.

Students enrolled in 3 or more credits, have the option to enroll in the Tuition Payment Plan (PDF) or pay in full at the time of registration. Students enrolling in the Tuition Payment Plan must come to the Cashier's Office to enroll in this plan.

If you are paying in full, you may pay online through Ocean Connect or you may call the Cashier’s office at 732.255.0324 to pay by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover are accepted).

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.

Tuition Payment Plan

The payment plan initial deposit amount is dependent upon the payment plan enrollment date.

Tuition Payment Plan payments can now be made through Ocean Connect, once your plan has been set up and your initial deposit has been made. If you are paying by mail, please be aware that the payment must be received by our office by the end of the due date business day. Students should plan an adequate amount of time for mail delivery.
