Pay Your Tuition

This page provides helpful information about how to pay your tuition, including options for paying for college, key dates, and information about other options for tuition help, including our payment plan. You can view your account information and amount owed any time by logging into your MyMSTC account. 

Options for Paying for College

  1. Complete tuition arrangements with financial aid or other outside funding.
  2. Pay tuition online: Log in to the Student Account Suite using your MyMSTC username and password. To access your student bill, please check your email as Mid-State does not send paper bills. The eAccount Management system will help you manage your bills and payments.
  3. Pay your tuition to Mid-State Technical College (Mid-State) at the Student Services & Information Center at your campus, or by mailing payment so that it is received by the tuition due date. 

Mid-State’s preferred method of payment is online via an electronic check or debit card. You will be asked for your information including bank routing and account numbers or a debit/credit card number. Enter your balance as shown on your MyMSTC account.

Other Options for Tuition Help

Payment Plan

Students with a balance of $250 or more may participate in the Installment Payment Plan (IPP). Students are able to enroll in the payment plan online at MyMSTC in their E-Account Management Portal. Please reach out to the Student Accounts department for assistance in setting up a plan.

  • Summer 2024 Semester: First Installment due June 3, 2024

  • Fall 2024 Semester: First Installment due August 19, 2024

  • Spring 2025 Semester: First Installment due January 20, 2025

Financial Aid

Students attending Mid-State on financial aid must have a completed financial aid application by August 23 (fall semester) and January 3 (spring semester) to have their tuition and fees deferred. If financial aid does not cover the entire amount owed to Mid-State, the student is responsible for the immediate payment of the balance. Students will be sent an electronic monthly invoice until tuition and fees are paid in full.

Agency/Employer Sponsorship

If financial assistance is provided on behalf of a student by an agency or an employer, written authorization from the sponsor must be on file before the first day of classes to allow the student to defer payment of tuition, fees and books (per the sponsor authorization). The sponsor will be billed directly for the authorized costs. If the sponsor does not cover the entire amount of the charges, the student must choose from the other payment options for the remaining balance.

Other Resources

Mid-State is here to help you weather financial stress and emergencies and stay enrolled. Check out our Financial Resources page for information about emergency funding, food pantries, and childcare resources.

Important: If you have not made full payment or arranged for a payment option (as described above) by the assigned tuition due dates, a $40 late fee will be assessed to your account.

The College may refer students with past due and outstanding tuition and fee obligations to the Wisconsin Department of Revenue, an outside agency for collection, and/or credit bureau reporting agencies.
