Interest-Free Monthly Installment Plan

Muskegon Community College has partnered with Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) to provide MCC students with payment plan options to pay for tuition.Your payment plan is valid only for the semester. You must sign up for it EACH SEMESTER, if that is how you choose to pay your tuition and fees.

Manage Your payment Plan buttonTO ENROLL:
Login into WebAdvisor and select “Financial Information.” Look for and click on “Manage Your Payment Plan” and follow the instructions.

 

Students who choose to use a payment plan may select installment plans that are spread over several months, depending on the length of the semester. Payments may be made from checking or savings accounts or by Visa, MasterCard, American Express, or Discover credit cards. In addition to the variety of choices available, students also have the convenience of paying online as soon as they are registered. The payment is automatically deducted on the 5th or the 20th of each month (depending upon the semester) Please note: Check, Debit, and ATM Cards may be returned unpaid due to daily limits restrictions imposed by your bank.

The only cost to budget monthly payments through a payment plan is a $25 per semester non-refundable enrollment fee and a 2.75% non-refundable service fee if you choose to make your payments by credit/debit card.  If you select the ACH option to have your payments come from a checking or savings account, there is no service fee, only the $25 enrollment fee. If you wish to pay in full with E-Check instead of paying by credit card, there is only a $2 fee.

If your payment is not successful, it will be reattempted within 15 days of the first attempt. Any time a payment is returned, you will receive notification from NBS on how the returned payment will be handled. Your payment plan agreement will be processed until the balance owed is paid in full.

For each returned payment, NBS assesses a $30  Returned Payment Fee. NBS Returned Payment Fees are automatically deducted from the account you have provided. If your NBS Returned Payment Fee is returned, it will be reattempted. NBS Returned Payment Fees are payable to NBS.

NBS Enrollment Fees and Returned Payment Fees are subject to change in future academic years or semesters, unless otherwise agreed by NBS and Muskegon Community College. Interest earned on all custodial funds held by NBS is payable to NBS.

You may budget your tuition and fees one of two ways:

1. Automatic Bank Payment (ACH)—ACH payments are those payments you have authorized NBS to process directly with your financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre-approved for your expenses at MCC. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 5th or the 20th of each month (depending upon the semester) and will continue until the balance is paid in full.

2. Credit/Debit Card Option—Many payers have requested the option of charging their monthly tuition payment to their credit card. This enables you to take advantage of various bonus programs offered by your credit card company. If you elect to use this option, your monthly payment, along with a 2.75% service fee, will be automatically charged to the credit/debit card you designate. The non-refundable service fee is in addition to the non-refundable NBS Enrollment Fee. Payments will be charged on the 5th or 20th (depending upon the semester) of each month until the balance is paid in full. If you wish to use this option, you may enroll by registering online through WebAdvisor. Credit card payments are processed by American Card Services, Inc.
