Northcentral University Payment Plan

This monthly payment plan covers the direct NCU tuition costs for each course

  • At the time of the student’s Course Request, a payment plan is initiated by the student requiring monthly payments made directly to the University
  • Students cannot register for a new course until all outstanding tuition and fees balances are paid in full
  • 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:

  • 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 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 their 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
