Full payments for tuition and fees are due when you register for classes, or partial payments can be made through the Tuition Installment Plans. Please log into MyMC to view your charges per term. Montgomery College does not mail paper invoices for the current term’s charges while a term is in session. Montgomery College will periodically send an e-bill. Go here for registration and payment processes for non-credit courses.
E-bill is the official billing method of Montgomery College. It is a convenient and reliable alternative to paper bills. E-bills provide faster and easier service to our students and their parents or guardians. Montgomery College sends an e-mail notification to the student’s official College e-mail account when an e-bill is available for viewing. Students have the ability to give access to authorized users to view their e-bills and or/make an online payment. You can add authorized users in the Pay My Bill area of MyMC. If you are having issues accessing your MyMC account or your Montgomery College e-mail account, please contact the IT Service Desk at (240) 567-7222.

Partial payments can be made by enrolling in the interest-free Tuition Installment Plan (TIP) using a debit/credit account to pay for installment payments.
MC TIP allows students to pay charges in several payments. Each term is independent and must be enrolled in separately. Enroll in a TIP by the payment deadline. The TIP due dates are fixed and cannot be changed. NOTE: MC TIP is not available for the Winter Session.
- For summer terms, the non-refundable enrollment fee is $20.00 per term. There will be 2 payments per summer plan. This includes a down payment due at the time of enrollment in the MC TIP and one other payment several weeks into the term.
- For fall and spring terms, the non-refundable enrollment fee is $35.00 per term. There will be 3 or 4 payments for full term plans. This includes a down payment due at the time of enrollment in the MC TIP and follow-up payments later in the term.
To view and enroll in the MC TIP to pay for credit courses only, log into MyMC and click on Pay My Bill. If you are enrolled in both credit and noncredit courses, do not enroll in a TIP online. You must go to the Cashier’s Office to enroll in a payment plan. If you are enrolled in noncredit courses only, visit the Workforce Development and Continuing Education (WDCE) TIP page for more information in enrolling in a payment plan.

If you have an employer or other agency assisting you with your tuition and fee charges and they require an invoice to send payment, you will need to provide Montgomery College with authorization from your sponsor. The authorization must include the following information:
- Your name and student identification number.
- The name and billing address of the organization sponsoring you.
- A contact name and phone number from the organization.
- A specific statement that authorizes Montgomery College to bill the organization.
- The total dollar amount to be billed to the organization.
- Billing requirements from the organization.
- Official signature (electronic signatures accepted) from organization.
Sponsor authorizations that do not include all of the required information will be returned to the sponsor and your organization will not be billed.
Sponsor authorizations may be submitted either by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
or by fax to 301-545-0536 (Accounts Receivable Office fax). Email is our preferred method of sponsor authorization submission.
- If your sponsor authorization is based on course completion or attainment of a certain grade before payment is made, you need to pay for your classes and wait to be reimbursed by your employer.
- Montgomery College does not defer tuition while you wait to be paid by your employer.
- Montgomery College requires you to submit new documents for each term you attend. You cannot submit one document for an academic year or multiple terms.
- If your sponsor is not paying 100% of your tuition charges you will be required to pay your portion of the charges to the Cashier at the time your form is submitted. Also, it is your responsibility to supply your sponsor with grades or certificates of completion. This is not done by the College , even if the documentation from your sponsor authorizes the release of such items.
- If your sponsor has indicated that they will pay for book charges, keep a copy of the documentation and submit it to the Follett Bookstore when you purchase your books.
- Once your documentation has been received, an indicator will be placed on your account that will hold your classes until the charges are billed. If you decide not to attend a specific class or classes once you have submitted paperwork, then you must drop the class by the specified refund date in order to not be financially responsible for the charges.
- Sponsors are billed after the fourth week of classes during the fall and spring term.
During the summer terms, sponsors are billed after the second week of classes. In
the case of noncredit (WD&CE) classes, sponsors are billed after the refund date for
the particular class has expired.
