Electronic Payment Portal

This payment portal is available for use by students to pay for various non-tuition related items (e.g., graduation fees, child care services, print charges, test charges), for a parent to pay for child care services or a third party/grantor to pay student related charges.  please click on the icon below to make an online payment via credit card (Visa, MC, and Amex) or via e-check.

Please note:
  • You will be redirected to a secure webpage customized for City Colleges of Chicago but operated by the Illinois State Treasurer’s Office.
  • Payments will be processed within 1-2 business days.
  • Once you enter the site, please go to the bottom of the page to start the payment process by clicking the campus/location related to the specific charge/bill.
  • An email address is required to make a payment since an automatic receipt will be generated and sent electronically once the transaction is finalized.
