Tidewater Community College is pleased to provide the Tuition Management Services (TMS) tuition payment plan to help meet educational expenses. The payment plan allows students taking credit classes to pay tuition in monthly, interest-free payments for a small, non-refundable fee. Different payment options are available dependent upon enrollment date. The minimum balance that can be budgeted is $100.00. The maximum is 15 credit hours. Students may enroll in the payment plan or review the available payment options by logging into myTCC, clicking on VCCS SIS, then on Self Service and then Student Center.

NOTE:   Students using the payment plan to pay tuition must enroll in classes first. After a payment plan contract has been completed, contract associated classes will be held until the guarantee date. The down payment and enrollment fee are processed immediately when you submit your payment plan contract.  Payment Plans do not automatically adjust.  You must log into your payment plan via the payment plan portal to make any adjustment, https://tcc.afford.com/.TMS will notify the school once a day of all requested adjustments and the school will either approve or deny the adjustments based on the student’s enrollment shown in SIS.  Refer to the College’s Methods of Payment website for a list of important dates.

The following rules regarding this procedure should be clear to both the student and the agency/employer.

  • The College will not accept authorizations from agencies/employers that are contingent upon acceptable student grades and/or employment status.
  • It is the student’s responsibility to present the authorization letter to the Business Office at the time of registration.

  • Students full name and social security number.
  • Course list including: course numbers and titles and the dollar amount authorized.
