Chattanooga State began processing paper checks electronically effective July 19, 2007. If you deliver a check in-person or mail it to the college, your paper check will be converted to an electronic Automated Clearing House (ACH) transaction. For your reconciliation purposes, these checks will now appear on your monthly bank statement as an Electronic Debit. If for any reason you do not wish your check to be converted to an electronic debit, please send your payment to the address noted above, with notification that you do not want your check processed electronically.  How do I Pay?

5. Can I view my account online?

Yes, students may view their account via TigerWeb Self Service

6. Does Chattanooga State offer any type of payment plan for my tuition/fees?

Yes, Chattanooga State offers an easy payment plan of three installments during the semester as follows:

  1. 50% of all fees are due at the time of registration
  2. 25% is due 30 days later
  3. 25% and final payment is due 30 days after the second payment

To take advantage of our Deferred Fee Payment Plan you must enroll prior to making your first payment. You have the option to sign up for the plan online through TigerWeb or you can sign up at any Chattanooga State campus. There is a $25 initial setup fee and a late fee of $25 for each late payment. The payment due dates will be published each semester on Chattanooga State's Web Site.

8. Can my parent or guardian make a payment for me?

Yes, a student can set up one or multiple authorized users on their Student Account Profile.

9. If a refund is determined to be credited back to me, what is the procedure to receive that refund?

Refund percentages are based on billable hours, not amounts paid. Students who officially withdraw from school entirely, full-time students who drop to part-time or part-time students who drop one or more classes may be entitled to a refund. If a student receives any financial aid, refunds will first be credited to the appropriate source. No refunds will be issued until the end of the refund period. Stopping payment on a check does not constitute proper withdrawal or a refund of fees paid. (A $30.00 fee will be charged for any returned checks.) For further information please review our Refund Information.

All refunds, excluding financial aid, will be mailed. Please notify Admissions or the Registrar of any address/mailing changes.

10. How can I make sure my class schedule is confirmed?

A confirmation number ensures you have successfully enrolled in classes and your fees are paid.

CONFIRM BY USING ESTIMATED FINANCIAL AID - You must confirm you will attend, even if fees are paid in full by financial aid, loans, and/or scholarships.  Your balance after financial aid is credited must be ZERO or a negative balance before you can confirm and receive a confirmation number.  Financial Aid Students - For instructions on how to confirm if you are a Financial Aid student, CLICK HERE.

CONFIRM BY PAYING YOUR FEES - If you owe a balance, you will be directed to a secure payment site to make payment or enroll in the Deferred Fee Payment Plan. 

Note:  Enrollment in the Deferred Fee Payment Plan requires a minimum initial payment plus enrollment fee.  For details, CLICK HERE.

You must confirm even if your fees will be paid in full by financial aid, loans, scholarships, third party, or other credits.

11. In regards to Financial Aid refunds and the Chattanooga State Discover Prepaid Debit Card…is there an ATM on campus to make withdrawals?

Yes, you may withdraw money (with no service charge) from your Chattanooga State Discover Prepaid Debit Card at the Acceluraid ATM. The Acceluraid ATM is located in the Student Center in front of the Bursar's office on the main campus. Further information on the Chattanooga State Discover Prepaid Debit Card can be found on the Bursar’s website ‘Overview’ or visit the Acceluraid website.
