Brightpoint does not generate a bill for tuition and fees. It is your responsibility to pay your tuition by the listed deadlines or you may be dropped from your classes.

  • On-Campus Cashier's Office payment deadline: 5:00 p.m.
  • Online payment deadline: 11:59 p.m.

Important Notes

  • Brightpoint does not generate bills or mail/email invoices for tuition and fees. You should log into your student account (SIS) for information about the tuition and fees you owe.

  • It is your responsibility to pay for the classes in which you enroll or to put other payment arrangements in place (examples: Nelnet payment plan, Third Party Billing, Veterans Benefits, financial aid or VA 529) by the posted payment deadlines.

  • If your anticipated financial aid, third-party contract, or payment plan is not sufficient to pay all tuition and fee charges, you must pay the difference by the deadline or you will be dropped from unpaid classes.

  • If you decide NOT to attend or stop attending class, you are responsible for going into their myBrightpoint account in SIS and dropping that class before the last day to drop with a refund date to ensure no debt is incurred. Refer to the appropriate semester’s Academic Calendar, which lists drop dates by class session.

  • If you fail to drop a class prior to the tuition refund deadline date, you will be charged for the class.

Ways to Pay

We offer several options for paying your tuition balance.  

Payment Policies

Brightpoint's tuition and fees are set by the Virginia Community College System; Brightpoint does not have the ability to waive fees or make exemptions for students. You must pay all tuition and mandatory fees – student activity fee, technology fee and student parking fee – at the same time to guarantee your enrollment in your chosen classes. Partial payments (for example, paying for one class out of several classes or only paying a fractional amount of one class) are not sufficient to hold all classes.
