Payment Plan

FACTS Tuition Payment Plan (available from Nelnet Business Solutions):

FACTS is a payment plan offered to help students budget tuition costs. It automatically withdraws a non-refundable $25 per term FACTS service fee, and the college tuition, from a credit card, checking account or savings account. This is not a loan program. There are no interest or finance charges. There is a maximum amount to qualify for the plan. Students are responsible to the college for all tuition and fees incurred as a result of registration. FACTS is only a convenient budget plan to assist students in managing their costs.

A deposit may be required. FACTS enrollment/payment dates for the current term are available at:

If the $25 service fee is not available for withdrawal, by FACTS, from the students’ banks or credit card, students cannot participate in the FACTS payment plan. Students not participating in the plan, must pay fees that are due on the college-wide payment dates printed in the current term's schedule. FACTS will charge a $30 “returned payment fee” for each unsuccessful attempt to withdraw funds from the students’ financial institution.

Prior to the college's published refund date, if a tuition payment cannot be withdrawn from the students' bank or credit card, the course registration will be in an "unpaid" status and subject to deregistration of classes. If a payment is not available from the students’ financial institution after the refund date, the college may proceed with collection activity without further notice.
