NSCC requires that the student sign a deferred payment contract each semester. Deferred payment plans are NOT available for the summer or other short terms.
Processing and Payment
The Bursar’s Office must process the deferred payment contract before the deposit can be made. Payment must be made the same day the student registers or all classes will be dropped. If online payment of the deposit is desired, please sign the deferred payment contract, fax to 615-353-3727 before 4 p.m. on the day the student registers, and mail or bring the original contract to the Bursar's Office.
Under 18 Years of Age
If a student wishes to use the deferred payment contract and is under 18 years of age, the parent’s signature is also required on the contract.
Guidelines for Deferred Payment
The Bursar’s Office guidelines for the deferred payment plan for Spring 2012 are as follows:
To be eligible for the deferred payment plan, students must owe at least $250 after all financial aid is applied, be in good financial standing with NSCC, and have no outstanding balances due from previous semesters.
After the initial deposit** is received at the time of registration, the remaining two payments are due on or before March 1, 2012, and April 1, 2012. There is no grace period. Do not wait for a billing statement to make your payments. When due dates fall on Saturday or Sunday, payments may be made by accessing myNSCC on the website.
If payments are received late, there is a $25 late fee for each payment that is late as well as each 30-day period past the second installment up to $100 if the payments are not received. To avoid these late fees, please ensure that payments are made by the due dates. The first payment is due on campus by 5:30pm on March 1, 2012, or by 8:00pm on March 1, 2012, if paying online. The second payment is due on campus by 12:00pm on March 30, 2012, or by 8:00pm on April 1, 2012, if paying online. There is no grace period.
Students who choose to early register from November 14 through 12:00 Noon, Thursday, December 15, 2011, must complete the deferred payment contract and pay the deposit by 12:00 Noon, Thursday, December 15, 2011.
**The initial deposit includes 50% of maintenance fees, technology access fees or online fees, and out-of-state fees (if applicable) plus a $10 deferred payment fee. All other fees are due at the time of registration.
PLEASE NOTE THAT FEES MAY BE DEFERRED FOR FALL AND SPRING SEMESTERS ONLY.
If there is a change in the student’s schedule that results in a refund due, the refund will be applied to the outstanding balance before a refund check is processed. Refunds are based on total fees assessed, not on the amount paid. Students who drop classes after the 75% refund period will have a balance due to the college. Please refer to the contract for specific information regarding the terms of the contract.
