Payment Information

Payment Options

Northeast Community College will no longer accept cash beginning May 1, 2024.

Payment Plan

To help you meet your educational expenses, Northeast Community college is proud to offer Nelnet Campus Commerce (NCC) as a convenient budget plan.

  • There are no interest or finance charges, and a credit check is not required. NCC is the leading tuition payment plan provider in the industry, and Northeast strives to provide you with sensible strategies for covering the costs of college.
  • Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) will be used to make your monthly payment(s) on the 5th of each month through the responsible party's bank account or credit card account.
  • The NCC program is based on electronic payments developed on a predetermined schedule. Students and their families know in advance when each payment will be made as well as the amount of each payment. This allows them to more easily budget the monthly payments for tuition and related expenses. The plan requires a $30.00 per semester nonrefundable NCC Enrollment Fee. This fee will be deducted from your account by NCC.
