Financial Aid

If you completed a financial aid application (FAFSA), any financial aid awarded will first be applied to your student account paying tuition, fees, and book charges as available.

Once tuition, fees, and book charges are paid, any remaining financial aid will be refunded to you as either a check or direct deposit. However, if these primary educational expenses are NOT fully covered, you will be responsible for paying the remainder all at once or by setting up a payment plan. If no action is taken, your remaining balance could get sent to collections within 90 days. Learn more about Financial Aid.

Payment Plans

Payment plans make it easier for you to afford your education through regularly scheduled payments.

Each time a payment plan is started, there is a $20 non-refundable service charge applied. Due dates vary per payment plan and may be set up to automatically withdraw from your checking/savings account. If payments are set up to withdraw automatically, any returned payments (due to insufficient funds) will result in a $25 fee charged per missed payment (due directly to Blackhawk Technical College).

To set up a payment plan, visit Express Services (located at Central Campus) or call (608) 757-7660 during business hours.

Agency or Third-Party Sponsored Students

If you enroll in a payment plan before receiving an agency's authorization, please be aware that the amount authorized by the agency may not cover the whole tuition balance.
