***IMPORTANT NOTICE: YOU WILL NOT RECEIVE A STATEMENT IN THE MAIL FOR YOUR CLASSES.
TO CHECK YOUR ACCOUNT BALANCE
You may obtain your balance on our website, www.southplainscollege.edu. Login to MySPC and choose Texan Connect, then Student Billing/Refund Choice. From here you can view account information or make a payment by clicking on the corresponding link. If you do not have a zero balance, or if you are not an installment contract (payment plan) by the semester deadline, your schedule will be cancelled. It is important to check your balance if you make ANY CHANGES to your schedule. Deadlines are listed on the Business Office homepage according to semester.
If you plan to pay in full on the web, you must do so by 3:00 pm on the deadline for the semester in which you are enrolled. We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and American Express on the web. To pay in full, follow the above directions for checking your account balance. Once you select "Make a Payment" on the Student Billing screen, click "Continue to Payment Center" link on the next page to be directed to our payment processor, TouchNet/Heartland ECSI. You will then see an option to make a payment or enroll in a payment plan (if available).
Installment payments are available for students online through Texan Connect. There is a $30 non-refundable enrollment fee per semester. This will appear as an additional charge with the initial payment. Payment will automatically be drafted on the predetermined due dates to the credit or debit card provided at the time you entered into the contract. A $30 late fee will be assessed for each missed payment. All plans will require a 50% down payment (or option of 25% down for 16-week terms only) based on the remaining balance of your bill after any accepted aid, scholarships, exemptions, or partial payments.

We have partnered with TransferMate to provide seamless international payments through your online student account. Log into your student account, select “Make A Payment”, choose “INTL- TransferMate” from the payment method dropdown menu, and follow prompts. For more information about making international payments, please download the step-by-step instructions, or watch this video for easy instructions.
TransferMate is prohibited from both receiving or sending funds to the following countries: Cuba, Islamic Republic of Iran, Democratic People's Republic of (North) Korea, Myanmar, the Russian Federation, Syrian Arab Republic, Venezuela. In addition, delays have been experienced with the following countries: Angola, Cameroon, Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, China, and Columbia.
*SPC recommends initiating an international payment at least two weeks prior to the payment deadline to provide additional time for any unforeseen delays in the transaction processing.
Can a payment through TransferMate be used to establish a payment plan?
NO. However, TransferMate is available for full balance payments, international application fees, and housing deposits. If partial payments are made, the student will still be subject to losing their schedule due to non-payment if the remainder of the balance is not reflecting paid in full on their bill in Texan Connect by the deadline.
Can I use an international account for refunds/overpayments on my student bill?
At this time, international accounts cannot be used for student refunds. Any credit or overpayment on a student account will be refunded to the U.S. checking or savings account designated through your Texan Connect, or a paper check will be issued if an account is not established.
Who can I contact for assistance?
For transaction-specific questions, contact TransferMate via Skype, Live Chat,
Email or Phone.
For questions relating to your student bill on Texan Connect, contact the SPC Business Office at email@example.com.
Will I be charged for using this service?
All international payments made through TransferMate are completely free of charge. However, you may be charged by your bank for making a local transaction. This is unfortunately out of our control. In addition, domestic transactions are subject to a $20 fee to cover costs.
Why do I need to provide identification?
By law, TransferMate is required to identify the person transferring funds to their bank account. Your identification will ensure that you and SPC are protected against Money Laundering attempts.
How will I know if my payment has been successful?
Once your payment has been received by South Plains College, the pending status will be removed, and the payment will be posted as a completed transaction on your student bill in Texan Connect. Additionally, you will receive an email confirming that your payment was successful.
How long does a transaction take?
Once TransferMate has received your payment into their local bank account in your country, TransferMate sends your payment the same day from that account to South Plains College. These payments are generally received by SPC the same day if payments are received into TransferMate’s local account in your country before 2pm GMT. However, SPC recommends initiating your payment at least two weeks prior to the payment deadline due to processing delays from certain countries.
When will my payment be posted to my student account?
Your payments will automatically be posted to your student account within 24-48 hours from payment completion.
If you have questions, please call the Business Office at (806) 716-2400 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
