The Online Payment Plan:
An Interest-Free Way to Pay for College

money-bagTo help you meet your educational expenses, WPCC offers a convenient monthly tuition payment plan through Nelnet Business Solutions. This is not a loan program or financial aid. There is no interest or finance charges associated with the plan and there is no credit check. The only requirement is that you have a minimum balance due of $100.

To use the service, you must pay a non-refundable fee of $25 per semester to Nelnet.

Learn more about the plan.

Payment Options

  • Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) – An ACH payment is one where you have authorized Nelnet to process a payment for your WPCC tuition and fees directly from your financial institution. It’s simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre-approved. The payment can come from either your checking or savings account, and they are processed on the 5th of each month as listed in your payment schedule. If you are planning on using a savings account with ACH, check with your bank before setting up the Nelnet service.
  • Credit Card Payment – If you like, you can use the Nelnet service with your credit card. This gives you the option of taking advantage of any bonus programs offered by your credit card company. Your monthly payment will be charged to your card on the 5th of each month as listed in your payment schedule.

 

Online Enrollment

You can sign up for the payment plan online. To protect your privacy, you will need to create your own access code. Before you begin, have the following information handy:

  • Your student ID number
  • The total amount of tuition and fees that you owe
  • The name, address, and e-mail address of the person responsible for the payment
  • Your bank account or credit card information
  • If you are using the ACH payments option, you need the bank name, telephone number, your account number, and the routing number for your bank. Most of this information is available on checks or deposit slips associated with your account

Make sure to carefully read through the Final Review and Terms and Conditions before you click or tap the submit button. Print your confirmation for your records. You will also receive an e-mail (if you provide one) confirming your enrollment.

Financial Aid at WPCC

Important Items

It is important to make sure your address listed with the Records Department is correct.  If your address has changed since you completed your application for admission to WPCC, you must update your information in Pioneer Pass. The directions to do this can be found at How to Update Address/Phone Contact.  

If you are unable to attend your classes, it is your responsibility to OFFICIALLY withdraw by 5:00 p.m. on May 22, 2020 to avoid owing tuition and fees.

If you register for classes but do not attend nor request a refund within the 10% period of the semester or 10% period of the class, whichever comes first, you will be listed as a “No Show” and you will still be responsible for tuition, fees and bookstore charges, if applicable.

Tips for Financial Aid Students

Dollar SignHere are some things to remember if you receive financial aid to attend WPCC:

  • Check Your Campus Email on a Weekly Basis – ALL financial aid award notifications are sent to you through campus email accounts. The Financial Aid Office is not responsible for any missed communications when you fail to activate or check your campus email accounts.
  • View and ACCEPT your financial aid package in your Pioneer Pass account.
  • If aid has not yet been awarded (and you have already completed the FAFSA), please access your Pioneer Pass account to determine what documents may be needed by the Financial Aid Office and submit those items as soon as possible.
  • If financial aid has not been awarded by the payment deadlines for the term, you should make other arrangements to pay your tuition and fees, by using either the tuition payment plan or paying out of pocket.
  • Full time enrollment for Financial Aid purposes is always 12 semester hour credits (SHC), every semester (fall, spring AND summer).
  • Only the semester hours for those classes required to complete your current program of study in the catalog year of your entry into the program will be used to calculate the AMOUNT of your financial aid award each term. Choosing to register for classes not needed to complete your program will result in a reduction or loss of your available award amount.
  • The first date Financial Aid refund checks will be mailed to students for the Summer, 2020 Semester is June 12, 2020.
