NBS-Payment Plan

St. Louis Community College offers a simple, secure and easy way to spread your maintenance fees (tuition) over a period of time with an NBS-Payment Plan. The payment plan is offered by Nelnet Business Solutions and is available for fall and spring semesters. 

You are responsible for payment upon registration. You must drop the class before the term starts to avoid responsibility for payment of fees.

If you register for a class after the payment due date then payment is due at time of registration.

    • Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account.
  • Credit card

Automatic Payment Plan   

How the Automatic Payment Plan Works

  • A $21 enrollment fee and required down payment (if applicable) are processed IMMEDIATELY upon enrolling in the Automatic Payment Plan.
  • Payment is processed AUTOMATICALLY on the fifth of each month.
  • If your payment on the fifth of the month is not successful, it will be re-attempted on the 20th of the month.
  • Your payments will continue to be processed until the balance owed is paid in full.
  • The student is responsible for all class fees incurred and payments will be deducted according to the payment agreement.
