Undergraduate Payment Plans

Pay-in-Full (Length of Program)

Students may pre-pay the tuition for their entire degree program at the beginning of their program at Northcentral University. Such pre-payment will confirm the tuition rate for the duration of the student’s entire program (excluding additional or retaken courses).


Tuition is due at the time the student requests his or her course(s). The University reserves the right to change tuition rate as it deems necessary.

Northcentral University Payment Plan

This monthly payment plan covers the direct Northcentral University tuition costs for each course only.

  • At the time of a student’s Course Acceptance, a payment plan is initiated by the student requiring monthly payments made directly to the University.
  • The University reserves the right to change tuition rates as it deems necessary.

Procedural Steps for the Northcentral University Payment Plan:

Step One: At the time attendance is confirmed in the course, the student submits the initial payment plan fee and schedules the subsequent monthly payments as required by the payment plan. The first payment and payment plan fee are processed on the eighth (8th) day of the course.

Step Two: The student’s two remaining monthly payments will be processed in 28-day increments beginning 36 days from the start of the course.

Other Important Details about Northcentral University Payment Plans:

  • Credit Card: The student’s credit card on file is charged automatically each month until tuition and fees for the term are paid in full.
  • Fees: A $25 Late Payment Fee will be charged for each month that a payment is not received on time.
  • If a credit card payment is declined or a check is returned due to insufficient funds, a $25 Declined Credit Card or Returned Check Fee will be charged.
  • If a student who has prepaid tuition withdraws or is dismissed from his or her degree program prior to graduating, any tuition reduction applied to such tuition prepayment is invalid. The student is charged the applicable tuition for all completed courses based on the full tuition rate in effect at the time each course began. The difference resulting from any tuition reduction and the amount charged at the full tuition rate in effect at the time each course began is deducted from the remaining credit balance prior to the refund payout.
