Financial Aid

If you are a financial aid recipient, your financial aid will be applied first to your student account in order to pay for tuition and fees. Estimated financial aid in excess of tuition and fees will be made available for the purchase of books and supplies from the bookstore during the period spanning from the first five business days before the beginning of each semester through the tenth business day of the semester.

Once tuition, fees, and book charges are paid, remaining financial aid, if any, will be refunded to you as either a check or direct deposit. However, if these primary educational expenses are not fully covered by financial aid, you will be responsible for paying the remainder, either as a one-time payment or by setting up a payment plan. If no action is taken, any remaining balance could be sent to collections within 90 days. Please see below for more informaiton regarding payment plans. 

Students may view their estimated charges and financial aid by logging in to MyBTC, selecting the "Paying for College" tab, and accessing their TouchNet payment portal. Students may also set up direct deposit for refunds in TouchNet by clicking on "Electronic Funds." Learn more about Financial Aid.

Payment Plans

Payment plans make it easier for you to afford your education through regularly scheduled payments.

Each time a payment plan is started, there is a $20 non-refundable service charge applied. Due dates vary per payment plan and may be set up to automatically withdraw from your checking/savings account. If payments are set up to withdraw automatically, any returned payments (due to insufficient funds) will result in a $25 fee charged per missed payment (due directly to Blackhawk Technical College).

To set up a payment plan, visit Registration and Records (located at Central Campus) or call (608) 757-7660 during business hours.
