To help you meet your educational expenses, Muskegon Community College is pleased to offer FACTS as a convenient online payment option. Students who choose to use FACTS may select installment plans that are spread over several months, depending on the length of the semester. You can make payments from checking or savings accounts or by MasterCard or Discover credit cards. In addition to the variety of choices available, students also have the convenience of paying online as soon as he or she has registered.

The only cost to budget monthly payments through FACTS is a $25.00 per semester non-refundable FACTS Enrollment Fee and a 2.75% non-refundable service fee if you choose to make your payments by credit/debit card.  If you select the ACH option to have your payments come from a checking or savings account, there is no service fee only the $25 enrollment fee. If you wish to pay in full with E-Check instead of paying by credit card, there is only a $2.00 fee.

The payment is automatically deducted on the 20th of each month from a checking or savings account. You may also have your payment charged to your credit card. If you elect to use your credit card, Visa, MasterCard, American Express or Discover Card may be used. Please note: Check, Debit, and ATM Cards may be returned unpaid due to daily limits restrictions imposed by your bank.

If your payment on the 20th is not successful, it will be reattempted on the 5th of the next month. Any time a payment is returned, you will receive notification from FACTS on how the returned payment will be handled. Your FACTS agreement will be processed until the balance owed is paid in full.

For each returned payment, FACTS assesses a $25.00 FACTS Returned Payment Fee. FACTS Returned Payment Fees are automatically deducted from the account you have provided. If your FACTS Returned Payment Fee is returned, it will be reattempted. FACTS Returned Payment Fees are payable to FACTS.

FACTS Enrollment Fees and Returned Payment Fees are subject to change in future academic years or semesters, unless otherwise agreed by FACTS Management Company and Muskegon Community College. Interest earned on all custodial funds held by FACTS is payable to FACTS Management Company.

You may budget your tuition and fees one of two ways:

1. Automatic Bank Payment (ACH)—ACH payments are those payments you have authorized FACTS to process directly with your financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre-approved for your expenses at MCC. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 20th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full.

2. Credit/Debit Card Option—Many payers have requested the option of charging their monthly tuition payment to their credit card. This enables you to take advantage of various bonus programs offered by your credit card company. If you elect to use this option, your monthly payment, along with a 2.75% service fee, will be automatically charged to the credit/debit card you designate. The non-refundable service fee is in addition to the non-refundable FACTS Enrollment Fee. Payments will be charged on the 20th of each month until the balance is paid in full. If you wish to use this option, you may enroll by registering online through eCashier. Credit card payments are processed by American Card Services, Inc.
