Payments By Mail

Make checks payable to “Delgado Community College” and mail to: 

City Park Campus
615 City Park Avenue, Building 2, Room 104
New Orleans, LA 70119 

Mailed payments must be received by the appropriate deadline. You should allow 14 days for delivery prior to the deadline. To ensure proper crediting to your account, write your student ID number on the bottom left of the check. Improperly completed checks may be returned to you unprocessed and will not be posted to your account.

Upon registration, all tuition and registration fees must be paid in full to secure classes. Alternatively, classes may also be secured with confirmed financial aid, enrollment in a payment plan through Delgado’s contracted vendor, or by having an exemption or contract applied to the account. Classes that remain unsecured by the established due dates published in the Student Handbook are subject to being deleted for non-payment.

Note: Students that make dishonored payments and/or delinquent payments may lose the privilege and convenience to pay with a check and/or pay online, including the eligibility to enroll in the payment plan.

Delgado does not mail registration bills or account statements. Electronic bills are provided to students with student account balances. This eBill can be used as proof of enrollment or for employer reimbursement programs. 

Electronic statement notifications are delivered to the student's preferred e-mail and to authorized users that have been established by the student. Transactions that occur after the eBill date will not be reflected.

A NSF Fee will be assessed for all dishonored checks. The fee is $25 or five percent of the amount of the returned check, whichever is greater. Online dishonored credit card or ACH payments will be charged a fee in the amount of $25.00 which must be paid directly to the online service provider, CashNet.

Students that make dishonored payments may lose the privilege and convenience to pay with a check and/or pay online, including the eligibility to enroll in the payment plan.

Any balance remaining after published payment deadlines (but before classes are removed from the system) may cause a $30 non-refundable deferment fee to be assessed to the student’s account.  Payments made on deliniquent accounts should be made in the form of cash, money order, or cashier's check.  

If a student has any outstanding balance, Delgado reserves the right to withhold future services including but not limited to registration, transcript requests, issuing diplomas, use of facilities, and other services as deemed appropriate by the College. 

Failure to honor payment plan dates or pay any balance in full by the end of the term may result in the account being placed with the State of Louisiana Attorney General’s Office or another outside agency for collection. Students will be responsible for all collection and/or legal fees associated with accounts placed for collection.
