Educational Cost Information

Tuition And Fees

Tuition and fees are determined periodically by the College Board of Trustees. NCCC charges tuition and fees on a per credit hour basis. Fees are charged to maintain and enhance technology, physical facilities, scholarship opportunities, and student life. In addition, certain classes have special fees assessed to help defray the cost of materials and supplies. For a current list of tuition, fees, and special fees, see the class schedule or contact the business office. NOTE: Tuition and fees are subject to change without notice.

Payment Of Tuition And Fees

Payment Due Dates

Students should be prepared to pay tuition and fees on or about July 25 for the fall semester, January 2 for the spring semester, and May 15 for the summer sessions. Students enrolling after these deadlines must pay at the time of enrollment, or have financial aid and/or scholarships in place to cover their entire balance.

Certain courses, such as allied health courses which fill quickly, require payment at the time of enrollment.

Installment Payment Plan

NCCC also offers a convenient installment payment plan. Students who wish to use this option are required to log into their myNEOSHO account and enroll in the online payment plan. There is a $35 user fee for this service per semester. The payment plan allows the student to divide their balance into multiple payments. The $35 payment plan fee is required at the time of enrollment. Students can have up to five monthly payments, depending on how early they enroll in the online payment plan. The payment plan option is not available for the summer sessions, or intersession classes. NCCC accepts VISA, MasterCard, AMEX and Discover. 

Returned Checks

If a check made payable to NCCC is returned for any reason, a returned-check fee of $30 will be charged for each returned check. The student will be notified at their current student address if a check is returned. If the payment is not made to the College within ten days, the matter may be referred to a collection agency. The student’s records will be placed on hold until the returned-check fee and all outstanding NCCC financial obligations have been paid. Once a student has a returned check, the College will accept only cash, money order, Visa, MasterCard, AMEX or Discover as payment.

If a student has completed registration in a class and wishes to withdraw from a class or classes in which he/she is enrolled, the student refund will be based on the following:

  • 100% refund if the completed drop form is received by the registration office within 1% to 13% of the business days in the class period.
  • No refund will be given after the refund period. A specific date for the end of the 100% refund period for each semester will be published in the enrollment management calendar for that semester.

If a student is withdrawn administratively from a course, there will be no refund given.

The Vice President for Student Learning or Dean for the Ottawa and Online campuses may authorize exceptions to this policy.
