Payment Plan

Don’t stress over your Tuition! Use NOVA’s Payment Plan to make tuition manageable. By entering the Payment Plan earlier, your tuition cost is spread over a longer period and your payments are lower. We want you to be thinking about English, Math, History, and IT – not tuition! Start planning now for an affordable payment option with our payment plan.

NOVA's Payment Plan

The best way to manage your college expenses without having a ton of debt when you are done.

NOVA IS DOING IT AGAIN! NOVA is paying the enrollment fee for all students who enroll in the Payment Plan for the Spring 2023 Semester. This is the fifth semester in a row that the college has paid the enrollment fee so students don't have to. Joining the Payment Plan is easy. It is all online and there is no credit check and no interest charges. You can spread out your payments and it will cost you nothing to enroll.

How Do I Manage My Expenses?

We know that it is tough to manage all of your expenses while going to College, but you can do this! If you get in a pinch, and need a few extra days to make your regular scheduled Bi Monthly or Monthly Payment, no problem. All you need to do is log on to your Nelnet Payment Plan Account, select your payment schedule and click on change payment date. You can also call Nelnet and make the request on the phone.

Payment Reminder

Nelnet will not attempt to collect your payment for an additional five days after the regular scheduled date. You must make the request at least two business days before your regularly scheduled payment date and you can only request the delay two times in any semester.

For Spring 2023, we are offering 10 different payment plan options. Find the one that is right for you.

  • Increases or decreases to your Payment Plan Account automatically change your payment plan budget amount and your semi- monthly or monthly payment amount will also automatically change based on enrollment changes, financial aid changes, and other changes.
  • Increases will change your upcoming payment plan payment if the increase occurs at least 10 days before the next scheduled payment.
  • Decreases will change your payment plan payment if the decrease occurs at least 2 calendar days before the next scheduled payment.
  • Nelnet will charge a $30.00 non-refundable fee each time your payment is returned by your Financial Institution for any reason (i.e. non-sufficient funds, closed bank or credit card account, incorrect bank account number, stop payment).

Payment Methods

  • Automatic Debit Payments via savings/checking accounts (ACH) - There are no service fees for payments made by ACH.
  • Credit Card/debit card – MasterCard, VISA, or American Express - A service fee of 2.85% will be added to each transaction.

Cost to Participate

  • The enrollment fee for all students who enter the payment plan is ZERO for the Spring 2023 semester. NOVA is paying the enrollment fee for the Spring 2023 semester so you don't have to.

Additional Plan Information

  • At the time of the enrollment in the payment plan, the payment plan budget amount reflected will be equal to the SIS student account balance net of any financial aid and/or payments.
  • Students or authorized payers will be notified by Nelnet of returned/missed payments. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure all payments are current to avoid termination of their payment plan.
  • If your payment plan is terminated for a failed deposit amount, you will be required to re-enroll as long as the payment plan enrollment period is still open. A new enrollment fee and down payment will be required. If your plan is terminated for a failed deposit amount and the payment plan enrollment period is closed, you are responsible to pay NOVA directly, online, or in-person the total amount due on your student account minus any payments that Nelnet successfully collected that have not been credited to your student account.
  • All payment plan participants are reminded to closely monitor your payment plan account, your college enrollment, and your college e-mail for any notification from Nelnet Campus Commerce or NOVA. Deadlines for terminating a plan account, making changes that effect the next payment, and certain dates and deadlines CANNOT be adjusted or changed.
  • For any questions about the payment plan or if you need help setting up your payment plan account, students or authorized payers should call Nelnet Campus Commerce at 800.609.8056.
