Available Payment Methods

You may pay by cash, check or credit card.

Checks

Checks must show the student’s name, student I.D. number and the semester or session for which the payment is being made. College staff will write student I.D. numbers on checks where a student has not done so already. If you prefer not to have your I.D. number on your check, please submit your payment by cashier’s check, money order or cash. Do not submit cash for mail-in or drop-off payments.

Credit Cards

Visa, MasterCard and Discover cards are accepted in-person or online at my.oakton.edu or EZ Pay (requires a login ID and password).
