Has your student enrolled you in our new online billing system?

The College’s new online billing system, CCPay, debuts in July for the Fall 2011 semester. Students are automatically enrolled in CCPay, and students will need to register parents as authorized payers so parents can view statements, make payments and more. For more information, read the CCPay FAQs.
