Tuition Payment Plan

Explore our convenient budget plan for 2019-2020

North Central College is proud to offer a convenient budget plan for 2019-2020 with a third-party vendor, Official Payments.  Note, the 2020-21 payment plans will become available by July 2020.  We can provide you with sensible strategies for covering the costs of college. This is not a loan program.  You have no debt and there is no credit check.


The 2019-2020 payment plan will be available to students on a semester by semester basis. A student can enroll in the payment plan each semester as outline below. The cost to budget your interest-free monthly payment plan is a $40 nonrefundable fee per term of enrollment in a payment plan. The installment due date is the 15th of each month in evenly divided installments, and the minimum plan amount is $100. There is no down payment during the enrollment periods below unless you enroll in the payment plan after the first installment is due, and then the first payment will be due immediately.

Once you enroll, please do not assume your balance will automatically be adjusted if financial aid is received or a class is dropped or added. If a class has a course fee or a program fee, that fee will not be included in your budget calculation so please contact Student Accounts. If you drop or add classes, it is your responsibility to notify the North Central College Student Accounts Office at (630) 637-5689. Official Payments will continue to deduct payments according to your original plan agreement until notification is received by Official Payments from North Central College that a change has been made to your plan agreement.
