Tuition Payment Plan:

Students who are unable to pay the full amount of their bill at registration can choose the Essex County College Payment Plan. The ECC plan allows you to divide total lump sum tuition bills into two easy to manage payments during the Summer terms and three payments during the Fall or Spring term with no interest charges – just an enrollment fee. Please contact the Bursar’s office at (973)877-3381 to obtain a detailed description of the plan or obtain information via the web at


Mail Drop Payment System

If you are paying your bill by money order, cashier check, certified or personal check, it is not necessary to wait on line. Use the tuition payment mail drop system available for your convenience in Room 4121, the Main Campus Bursar’s Office or the West Essex Bursar’s Office window. Simply follow the instructions imprinted on the envelopes provided to ensure proper credit to your tuition account. If any of your previous personal checks were returned to the College dishonored, you can still use the tuition payment mail drop system but you must pay by money order, cashier’s check or certified check.
