Payment Procedures

After completing the registration procedure, a student must pay tuition fees either electronically through OneACCS or in a Gadsden State Business Office located at Gadsden State Cherokee, the East Broad Campus and the Ayers Campus.

Registration and added classes will be cancelled for students who do not pay all fees on the day they register or add classes. Added classes will not be dropped. A student is not officially registered until tuition and fees are paid or assumed by financial assistance.

GSCC accepts the following types of payment at the One Stop Center on the East Broad Campus and the Administration Building on the Ayers Campus: cash, checks drawn on domestic banks in U.S. dollars only, money orders, traveler’s checks, Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express credit cards. Gadsden State Cherokee only accepts checks or money orders.

OneACCS is available at all times 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 I.D. number or GSCC personnel will write the student's I.D. number on the check. Students who prefer not to have their 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 GSCC credits.

Online Payments

Students may pay tuition and other fees by web using a Visa, Master Card, Discover or American Express.  Payment for tuition should be made at the time of registration.  

All students/parents paying by web will need the student number and pin number to process the payment.  The pin number is a six-digit number set up by the student during the first use of the automated system.  The student must remember the six-digit number to access the student account by web.  If the student does not remember his/her pin number, the student should talk with the Computer Center Help Desk at 256-549-8341 or helpdesk@gadsdenstate.edu.
