The BMCC Financial Aid Office establishes yearly standard student budgets as a basis for awarding financial aid funds. The following budgets are based on full-time enrollment for fall, winter, and spring term. The budget is prorated for less than full-time attendance.

By definition, full time is 12 or more credits in a term. However, for purposes of establishing a budget, full time costs have been calculated based on 15 credits per term, which has been shown to be the average credit load for full time students at BMCC.

The Cost of Attendance (COA) Budget is the estimated cost of attendance at BMCC. The COA is not an exact statement of what it will cost to attend, nor is it necessarily what will be offered in awards. It is merely an estimate of expenses and the ceiling, or maximum, a student can be awarded in aid.

A budget adjustment can be requested if documented acceptable expenses that are not included in this budget exists, such as childcare costs. Budget adjustments are automatically made by the Financial Aid Office for programs of study with special budgetary needs such as Diesel Technology and Nursing. For any COA budget questions, contact the Financial Aid office at 541-278-5779 or email at

The COA is based on the following average direct and indirect costs:
Tuition and Fees: Set annually by BMCC’s Board of Education. (Direct cost)
Books and Supplies: An estimate of average costs for the academic year. These costs incorporate: books, course materials, supplies and equipment, (Direct cost)
Living Expenses: An estimate of average food and housing costs based on double occupancy and off-campus housing. Students living at home will have this amount pro-rated. (Indirect cost)
Personal and Transportation: An estimate of possible expenses for personal items, clothing, recreation, and travel. (Indirect cost)

These services include use of the college student union, computer laboratories, library, laboratory and course equipment, materials in connection with courses for which the students are registered, and admission to some events sponsored by the college. By college policy, there is no reduction in fees for students who do not intend to avail themselves of these services.

Paying Tuition

Tuition and fees are payable in full by cash, check, or credit card (Visa or MasterCard) by the end of the fifth class day of each term, or the equivalent percentage of days of terms or classes of varying length. Students may also use financial aid funds or third-party agency funds to pay their tuition and fees if they are eligible for these funds. Payments can be made at any location, by mail, or through the Student WolfWeb.

Deferred (Tuition) Installment Plan: BMCC’s tuition installment payment plan is designed to assist students in paying their tuition and fees by setting a reasonable timetable and structure for payment. Students may sign up for this installment plan at any BMCC location or through the BMCC website.  An agreement is not binding for the college until a representative of the Business Office has signed the completed form. Upon signature, BMCC will return a copy of the official signed installment plan to the student. The installment plan will consist of a down payment of $100 plus a $20 processing fee. The balance of tuition and fees will be paid in two installments due at the fourth and seventh week of the term (or equivalent for terms of varying length). Late fee penalties of $15 will be charged for each late payment.

Starting with Spring Term 2018:

  • Students who sign up for a deferred (tuition) installment plan will have the ability to register for subsequent term(s) classes while still making payments on their current term balance. In addition, those on deferred installment plans avoid any late fees if paid according to the agreed upon payment plan. These deferred installment plans allow a student to spread the tuition over three payments with $100 due when signing up, ½ of the remaining balance due Friday of week four, and the other half due Friday of week seven.   
  • Deferred (Tuition) Installment Plans are due Friday of the first week of the term. However, the deadline is being extended until Friday of the second week of the term for Spring 2018 Term only!
  • Please Note: If payment is not made in full before Monday of week eight, the college will automatically drop the student from the next term(s) courses and the student may not be eligible to defer tuition in future terms.

Current Term Tuition Installment Dates and Deadlines can be found on the Academic Calendar

Please contact Student Accounts to learn more about this opportunity!

Late Fee/Interest Penalties: Students who have not paid or made payment arrangements by the end of the fifth class day, or the equivalent day of terms or classes of varying length, will be assessed late fees.  The fee is 3% of the balance due assessed monthly until the balance is paid. The minimum charge is $10, and the maximum charge is $75 per term. 

Financial Holds: If your student account is not paid in-full by Monday of the second week of the term, a financial hold will be placed on your account preventing you from registering for the upcoming term.  Other financial holds may be placed on your account if items are not returned to departments at the College (such as the Library or the MAC Center) or if you have a bad address listed on your Student WolfWeb account.  Please contact Enrollment Services about how to resolve the financial hold on your account.

For questions, please email Student Accounts

Residency (In State Vs Out-Of-State)

To determine your residency status for tuition purposes, please review the information below.   

In-State Residency: You, the student, must meet at least one of the following requirements to be considered “in-state” for tuition purposes:

  1. Resided in the state of Oregon at least ninety (90) continuous days prior to the first day of the term.
  2. You or a member of your immediate family, hold title to property as a permanent Oregon residence.
  3. Filed an income tax statement with the Oregon Department of Revenue for the most recent reporting year.
  4. Been a veteran that has established residence within the college district within one (1) year of separation or discharge from the Service.
  5. A dependent of parents or legal guardian who has established residency within Oregon.
  6. A resident of one of the following states: Washington, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, and California

Out-of-State Residency: Students will pay out-of-state tuition if they list their state of legal residence as a state other than Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Nevada, Montana, or California. This excludes students who have provided documentation to establish In-State residency as indicated by this policy.

To apply for In-State residency, complete BMCC’s Proof Of Oregon Residency web form below.

International: Students who are citizens of another country and are attending BMCC on a F-1 or M-1 student or other visa will pay the international tuition rate.

Guidelines: Students who graduate from a high school other than in Oregon, Idaho, Washington, Nevada, Montana, or California within the last two years will be considered out-of-state residents and may be required to provide proof of Oregon residency.

Residency criteria requirements apply to readmission of students who have established residency in another state since their last enrollment at the college. This will be checked at the time of readmission to the college.

Students attending on F-1 or M-1 Visa’s do not qualify for in-state residency.

Students that establish their 90-day residency requirement during their current term of enrollment will be granted in-state residency status for their following term of enrollment for the academic year in which they applied for residency. (Example: student meeting 90-day residency requirement during fall term 2018 will be eligible for in-state residency winter term 2019 or their next term of enrollment for the 2018- 19 academic year).

Alaska residents who wish to receive the Alaska Permanent Fund Dividend while attending BMCC should consult their state agency prior to applying for in-state residency as it may affect their ability to receive these funds.
