Student Accounts and Billing
As part of our educational program, we are available to help students understand the financial responsibilities of their Student Account.
All charges, including tuition, housing, meals, bookstore and other charges placed by various departments on campus are placed on what we call your Student Account. The student account is simply our record of student’s charges and payment to the college.
Pay Your Bill
Payments can be made to your Student Account in a variety of ways:
SNCSIS stands for the Sierra Nevada College Student Information System. This is where you will find your class schedule, bill, financial aid information and more. Sierra Nevada Financial Aid and Student Accounts are paperless. Using SNCSIS provides you with real-time data at any time and helps keep us environmentally friendly.
Your username is your student number and your password starts out as your six digit birth date.
Student Account FAQ’s
When do I have to pay tuition and fees?
- Tuition is due August 1st for fall, January 1st for spring and May 1st for summer regardless of when your courses begin. It is also policy to charge interest on student account balances after the due date. As a courtesy, interest will not be assessed at the end of the first month but will be charged mid-month beginning the 2nd month of the term at a rate of 2% per month. When reviewing your student account, we take into consideration current pre-approved payment arrangements and financial aid.
How can I check my balance?
- Your account is accessible 24/7 on SNCSIS. Your username is your student number and your password starts out as your six digit birth date. Please contact the registrar’s office if you need assistance logging into your SNCSIS.
How do I pay?
- We accept cash, checks, and major credit cards. We also can provide you with the instructions on arranging wire transfers from your bank to ours. You can also make a credit/debit card payment online at the Payment Center.
Do you have a payment plan?
- Yes, Sierra Nevada College offers payment plans with 3, 4 and 5 payments to help students and families who would like to spread out their semester charges. Enroll in a Payment Plan.
