Automatic Payment Plans

Germanna Community College (GCC) offers payment plan options through TMS.  A TMS payment plan is a convenient and affordable option, allowing you to make automatic, monthly payments to cover tuition and fees.

Manage on germanna.afford.com or call an Education Payment Advisor today at (800) 337 – 0291.

Paying-as-you-go is the best way for students to pay education expenses. The cost to participate is a $35, $40, or a $45 non-refundable enrollment fee per semester, depending on the number of payments.

    • It is the student’s responsibility to increase their plan if they add a class or decrease their plan if they drop a class.
    • Refunds of overpayment will not be processed until GCC receives the funds (*see disbursement dates below).
