The Bursar's Office is the centralized billing and collection point for student accounts. The primary function of the Bursar's Office is managing all student accounts including processing payments and installment plans, applying waivers, generating bills, coordinating collection efforts and processing refunds.

Bursar News

As of August 2016: Gateway Community College will no longer send out paper bills. Students will receive email notifications to the college email addresses when they have a new billing statement to view. Then they can view their bill online, through mycommnet by going to Banner Self Service, Billing/Payment and clicking on Student Account and Payment Center.

Authorized user functionality is here! Does someone else help you with the bills? Now you can authorize your parents, employer, or anyone you choose to view your bill, make payments directly on your account, and even sign up for a Tuition Installment Plan. Any student can give permission to an Authorized User, even those not enrolled in a Tuition Installment Plan.

It’s easy to give someone access. All you need is a valid email address.

Important Bursar Dates and Deadlines

All Semesters
  • While GCC reserves the right to cancel unpaid registrations, as long as your name is on an official roster your account will be charged and you will earn a grade for the course – whether you attended it or not.
  • If you change your mind about taking a course(s) after your register, you are required to officially drop it whether or not you have made payment or have attended. DO NOT ASSUME THAT YOUR ACCOUNT WILL BE DROPPED FOR NON-PAYMENT. You will continue to be held responsible for all charges until you officially drop the class regardless of your payment status. Dropping is the only way to ensure that your account will not be charged!  Without exception, once your registration is cancelled you won’t be able to re-register unless there is space available in the class.
