Service Fees

Official Payments charges a service fee for processing credit card transactions.  This fee is not charged by or paid to Cincinnati State.  The service fee is assessed to cover operating costs and the costs associated with servicing thousands of credit card transactions.  You will be informed of all fees before you authorize your payment.

Official Payments charges a non-refundable service fee of 2.5% of the payment amount.  This fee will be assessed to your credit/debit card account.  Effective immediately, the college will now be able to offer Visa as a payment option. Visa recently announced that colleges and universities can now charge a percentage-based service fee for tuition related payments.  Therefore, students can use all four brands, American Express, Discover, Mastercard and Visa to make payments.

The Cashier’s Office does not accept credit/debit card payments in-person.  Credit card payments may be remitted only through the Cincinnati State online payment site via the “Make a Payment” link on the Cincinnati State MyServices portal.

An electronic check option will be offered as a no-fee alternative to credit/debit card payments.  This e-check option is available through the same “Make a Payment” link on the MyServices portal.

Apply Early

You should begin the admission process six to eight weeks in advance of the term you plan to attend Cincinnati State. This allows time to facilitate transcript requests, process financial aid, and advise you on your academic pursuits. Note that admission to the College is based on the policy “first-come, first-qualified, first-served.” Applicants are notified of acceptance by mail and via Cincinnati State email.    Site Map    Accessibility    Privacy Statement    Glossary    Driving Directions    Campus Map
