Paying for College
We accept many options to pay for college. Learn more about available options on the Pay the College webpage.
Financial Aid Refunds
If your financial aid exceeds your Barton account balance, the difference will be issued to you as a refund for you to use for educational expenses. Barton Community College offers two options to receive refunds. Refunds are defaulted as a paper check so if you decide on this option please make sure your contact information is up to date in the MyBarton Portal. Barton recommends students sign up for direct deposit in the MyBarton Portal > Student Financial Center – My Account because it is the safest and fastest way to receive your refund. Please visit the Receiving Financial Aid webpage and Disbursement Policy section for more information.

In accordance of FERPA regulations, the Business Office is unable to discuss specific account information with anyone other than the student without the completion of a FERPA release form. The release form is found on the student’s MyBarton Portal. Login to your Portal and then select PAWS. Under the Student tab, select Authorize Release of Information.
Students can add an authorized user (family member, employer, etc…) who can view the online student account, make payments, and view the IRS Form 1098T on their behalf. To add an authorized user, the student will log into the MyBarton Portal > Student Financial Center – My Account. On the Summary page, there will be an option to send an Invitation to Payer. An email will be sent to the person you chose to invite with the log on information.
