Payment Plan Information

Payment Plan Information

The Maricopa County Community Colleges offer an automatic monthly payment plan that allows students to split up their tuition costs for payment throughout the semester. The payment plan is managed by Nelnet Campus Commerce.
Plan Details

  • $40 will be charged when starting the plan
    • $15 will apply toward the tuition balance
    • $25 is a payment plan registration fee paid to Nelnet, this fee is non-refundable
  • A separate payment plan needs to be created for each semester and each college the student is attending
  • Automatic payments will begin on the month after starting the plan
  • Payments are withdrawn on the 5th of the month
    • If the 5th is a weekend or holiday the payment will be withdrawn the next business day
  • The number of payments will depend on when the plan is started and when the student’s classes end
  • The maximum number of payments in a semester is 6
  • The tuition balance on the student account will be split evenly across the remaining payments
  • If classes are added or subtracted from the student’s schedule, the monthly payments will automatically increase or decrease appropriately
  • If a class is dropped after the deadline to receive a refund, the tuition for that class is still owed, and the payment plan will not be stopped or adjusted

Payment Methods

  • Checking/Savings Account
    • Please note that the process to withdraw funds may begin earlier than the payment due date if using this method
  • Credit/Debit Card
    • If the card is canceled or expired it can be updated online through the Nelnet website
    • It is not possible to change to someone else’s card partway through the plan
  • The payment plan requires a payment method that allows funds to be withdrawn automatically
    • Cash cannot be used for the payment plan


  • Nelnet will assess a $30 fee if an attempted payment does not clear
    • This fee is not collected by the college and will not apply toward the tuition balance
  • The missed payment will be reattempted on the 20th of the month, or the next business day if the 20th is a weekend or holiday
  • Multiple missed payments may lead to termination of the payment plan
    • A terminated plan may result in classes being dropped, or a debt that restricts services
    • Terminated plans cannot be reactivated
  • Nelnet may terminate a payment plan immediately if they discover that the account used for automatic payments has been closed
