Payment Plan

Although all charges are due and payable in full at the beginning of each term, students in good financial standing at JSCC may request the deferment of up to 50% of their tuition and fees for the fall and/or spring semesters.

The Nelnet Payment Plan is not available for summer terms.

To enroll in the Payment Plan:

 

Eligibility

To be eligible for the Nelnet Payment Plan, each participant must have a balance of $400 or more and be prepared to make a minimum down payment of 50% of the tuition and fees allowed for deferment. All financial aid awarded and disbursed (including loan funds) must be applied toward payment of tuition and fees before a deferment plan will be considered. Prior term charges and non-deferrable charges must be paid in addition to the 50% down payment.

Terms

The amount deferred will be payable in two monthly installments to be determined each semester by Business Services. Jackson State is not obligated to send reminder notices before the payment is due.

Participants in this plan must apply all discounts, waivers, credits and financial aid, including student loans, toward payment of registration fees before a deferment will be considered. Financial Aid and other credits received after the initial payment will be applied to the remaining balance, and future amounts due will be recomputed. No refunds can be made until all fees are paid in full.

Students will not be withdrawn from classes for failure to pay the 2nd or 3rd installments. However, Jackson State will withhold grades and transcripts until current payments are made. Also, the balance must be paid in full before the student can pre-register for future terms even if pre-registration is prior to the due date.

For a breakdown of fee and tuition charges please visit our Tuition & Fees page.

Service Charges and Fines

Each participant will be charged a $25.00 deferment service fee each term. This fee is payable along with the 50% down payment on or before the registration fee payment deadline. Students who make payments with checks that are returned will be charged a $30 return check service fee as well as any applicable late fees.

If a payment is not satisfied by the scheduled payment due date, Jackson State will withhold all services from the students, including grades, transcripts, and future registration until the fees have been paid in full.

All existing rules and policies pertaining to returned checks, refunds, withdrawals, dropped classes, and collection costs are applicable to the Nelnet Payment Plan.

Upon receipt of a Statement of Account/Class Schedule, students who desire to participate in the Nelnet Payment Plan should pay the minimum amount due shown on the Statement of Account. The statement will also show subsequent payment amounts and their corresponding due dates. Students may pay the full amount due or the minimum payment.

Refunds/Withdrawal from Classes

Students who drop or withdraw from classes will still have a balance due under the deferred payment plan. Fees are adjusted based on the drop or withdrawal date. The refund percentage is NOT applied to the amount of payment, but rather as a percentage of adjustment of total fees. A refund would only be issued to the student if the newly adjusted amount of fees is less than the amount that has been paid by the student.

To avoid ineligibility for the deferred payment plan in future terms, the student should continue to make payment by each due date. Refer to the Nelnet Payment Plan Page for the new payment amounts after drop or withdrawal. Remember, withdrawal from classes does not negate the student's responsibility to pay the balance of fees after the semester has begun.

Delinquent accounts are referred to a collection agency and credit bureau. Any account referred for collection will not be eligible for the deferred payment plan in future enrollment periods.
