Tuition Payment Plan


Explore our convenient budget plan for 2020-2021

North Central College is proud to offer a convenient budget plan for 2020-2021 with a third-party vendor, Official Payments.  Note, the 2021-22 payment plans will become available by July 2021.  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.


Costs


The 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 semester of enrollment in a payment plan. The installment due date is the 20th 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.

In an effort to make the automatic payment plan accessible and affordable to all students during COVID-19, the College will be waiving fees for academic year 2020-2021, including absorbing enrollment fees from third party processing partner. As this is processed by a third party, the initial charge will show up on your account, and the College will credit back all automatic payment plan enrollment fees for the Fall 2020 semester.

Details


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.
