1. What type of courses can be paid through the payment plan?

The payment plan is for credit courses only. If you are enrolling in a credit course that begins mid-session, enrollment in the payment plan must be completed during the regular session enrollment period. Noncredit program courses are not eligible for the payment plan.

The payment plan does not charge interest. There is a one-time nonrefundable enrollment fee of $35, due when you enroll. There is a $25 late fee assessed for each month your payment is late.

3. What if I miss the enrollment due date?

You can enroll on-campus during our late-enrollment period. This will require you to pay missed payments at the time of enrollment. Late enrollment is due by the tuition due date to confirm your course registration. Enrollment after this date is only open to students who are late registrants.

4. What happens if I am awarded financial aid after I enroll and make payments?

Your payment plan payments are credited to your student account. If a financial aid award brings your balance due to zero, your payment plan is cancelled and you owe no further payments. If your financial aid award produces a credit balance on your account, a refund would be issued to you according to our financial aid refund procedures. Payment plan fees are not refundable. If you still have a balance due after your financial aid award, the remaining balance is divided by the number of payments you have left on the plan.

5. Do I need to sign up on the plan if I am expecting financial aid?

If your financial aid award is pending by the tuition due date and it is enough to cover your bill in full, you do not need to make payments or enroll in the payment plan. If your financial aid award is not pending or you have a balance due after aid, you need to either pay the balance due in full (after deducting pending aid) or enroll in the payment plan for this amount. This allows you to make regular payments while your financial aid award is being processed. Failure to pay the balance due may cause you to lose your course registration.

6. Is there any penalty for prepayment?

No, there is never a penalty for prepayment.  You can pay your payment plan balance in full at any time.

7. Where do I make payments?

Payment plan payments may be made on-line through the MyNCC - go to your Tuition Bill to pay online with a credit card.

Payment plan payments may also be mailed to the address stated on your payment coupon or dropped in the Bursar drop box on the main campus. Please be sure to include your payment coupon. Payments cannot be accepted at bursar windows.
