Important Information about Paying Via Workday

  • Only click the submit button one time. Clicking this button multiple times may cause your card to be charged more than once.
  • If your payment was authorized, you will receive a receipt page. You can view your Bursar Tuition Bill again to see the payment reflected.
  • If you received a receipt page but your payment is NOT reflected on your Bursar Tuition Bill, DO NOT make another payment. Contact the Bursar's Office to review your account before making subsequent payments.
  • If your payment was declined, you will need to find an alternate payment method. NCC does not accept credit card payment over the telephone.
  • NCC is not responsible for multiple payments erroneously authorized by the cardholder or for any fraudulent use of a credit card. Multiple payments resulting in overpayment of an account will be verified and refunded according to the college's refund policy. Only accounts with a credit balance can be refunded.
  • Refunds may take up to 14 days to process from the date we verify a refund is due.

The Bursar's Office handles the payment and refund side of the Financial Aid process. This means that we receive the payments, whether they are loans, grants or scholarships, and then apply those funds to the financial aid recipient's tuition bill.

Any remaining funds are refunded to the student and may also be used for one of the following educational purposes:

Books & Supplies

Use up to 100% of your credit balance (maximum allowed $1,200) to purchase required textbooks and supplies at any NCC Bookstore. Amounts and percentages of credit allowed for purchases are set by NCC each semester and NCC reserves the right to decrease allowable amounts in future semesters.

Note: Certain types of third-party funding may not be available until 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester and may only allow purchase of required textbooks. 

Only students with excess financial aid can access a book credit. 

NCC Childcare

Pay for childcare services received at the NCC Children's Center.

To transfer funds to a childcare account, visit the Bursar's Office at either the Bethlehem or Pocono campus enrollment office to fill out a transfer request form.


Excess financial aid that is not used for other purposes will be refunded to the student. Read more information on financial aid student refunds.
