    NBS Tuition Payment Plan

    Students may choose to participate in the NBS Tuition Payment Plan. This plan, managed by Nelnet Business Solutions, will allow students more flexible payment options. There will be a $25 per semester, non- refundable fee for all students who sign up for the plan. Students must register for classes prior to signing up for NBS.

    How NBS Works

    You may budget your tuition and fees one of two ways:

    Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) - ACH payments are those payments you have authorized NBS to process directly with your financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre-approved for your expenses at OCTC. Payment may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 20th of each month and will continue until the balance due the college is paid in full.

    Credit Card Option - Many students and families have requested the option of charging their monthly tuition payment to Visa, MasterCard, or Discover. This enables you to take advantage of various bonus programs offered by your credit card company. Payment will be charged on the 20th of each month until the balance is paid in full.

    Note: Should ACH or credit card payment be missed, a $30 missed payment fee will be automatically assessed to your account. You will be notified by NBS of the missed payment via mail.

    To set up a tuition payment plan, please visit the Business Office. For additional questions, you may contact the Business Office at 1-855-5GO-OCTC or by email.

    Tuition payment plans are not available for the Summer Intersession.

    Employee Education Assistance Programs 

    If your employer offers an Employee Education Assistance Program, OCTC will coordinate billing information with your employer’s Human Resource Office. To qualify for this assistance, you must submit a written guarantee of payment from your employer to the Fee Payment Office each semester before the payment deadline and payment must be made directly to Owensboro Community and Technical College by your employer. If your employer would like more information regarding this type of program, please have them call 1-855-5GO-OCTC.

    Tuition Policies

    Registration is not complete until fees are paid. MasterCard, Visa and Discover may be used for payment of tuition, fees and books. 

    Students who have been approved for financial aid will have their tuition and fees deferred until financial aid is received. Students whose tuition is paid by a third party such as a government agency, scholarship, or employer should consult with Business Office personnel to make sure documentation is on file to defer their tuition and fees.
