Porterville College offers installment payment plans to assist non-resident students in making their tuitions and fee payments over the course of a semester (e.g. Fall or Spring).
For non-traditional semesters (e.g. Summer) and additional questions, please contact the Office of Financial Aid.

Installment Plans are only for students who owe Non-Resident Tuition.

The state legislature imposed enrollment fees to all students enrolling in credit courses. (Education Code, Section 72252, Title 5, Sections 58500-58508). The California enrollment fee is dependent on state legislature action. The college reserves the right to increase or decrease “fees” based on legislative mandates. 

How do I pay my fees?

For Financial Aid Non-Resident students: The Installment Plan payment schedule dates will coincide with the Pell grant disbursement dates and will be viewed as a financial aid fee deferral.
