Paying Your Tuition

Tuition and fees will be charged to your student account at the time you register.

Payment Due Date: Before the first day of the term or within ten days of registration (whichever is later) to avoid a $25 late fee. Additional late fees will be applied each term on unpaid accounts throughout the term. See more information on the late fees page.

Billing/Invoices: In general, we do not send paper invoices to students owing for course tuition and fees.  We send monthly (and often more frequently) e-bill notifications to students.  Students can review all their statement history online.  E-bills are sent to student MyChemeketa emails and to any other email address they have set up in their profile in Nelnet. E-bills are also sent to Authorized Payers. 

Payment Options for Students

Online: Credit card (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover) and E-Check payments may be made at My Chemeketa through Nelnet. International students may also choose to pay with a wire transfer in their home currency by selecting the FlyWire option.

Mail: Check payments may be mailed to:

Business Services
Chemeketa Community College
P.O. Box 14007
Salem, OR 97309-7070

To ensure proper credit, include your student ID number (K#) with the check. Please do not send cash.

In person: Enrollment Center, Building 2, second floor, Salem Campus, or any Chemeketa location. We can accept credit cards ((Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express), checks and cash for in person payments.

Authorized Payers: If you have been authorized by a student through Nelnet to pay the student account follow this link. When a student authorizes you to access their student account and make payments on their behalf you will receive an e-mail notification from Nelnet Campus Commerce. The e-mail will include a link to Nelnet to accept the invitation.

Failure to Pay

A past due account may result in denial of future college services including registration, withholding of transcripts, denial of future credit, impairment of credit history, and additional assessment of collection charges and attorney fees.

By registering for any class at Chemeketa you acknowledge that tuition, fees, and other applicable charges incurred will be considered an educational loan between yourself and Chemeketa Community College that is non-dischargeable under Section 523(a)(8) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. You further agree that, if you fail to make any payments as prescribed above, your student account may be submitted to a collection agency and applicable collection charges may be added to your account balance due. In case legal action is instituted to collect on your account, you agree to pay, in addition to the costs and disbursements provided by law, such additional sums as a court of law may determine as reasonable for attorney's fees and court costs. Oregon state law applies to any dispute over payment and charges due.
