New Online Payment Plan Features Launch Summer 2016

Online access to student payment plan accounts is just one new feature coming this summer to students at all MCCCD campuses. Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) and Maricopa Community Colleges are adding new payment plan features beginning in the Summer 2016 term.

Improved features include:

  • Online access to student account information from any device, at any time
  • Same-day payment posting means no waiting for account updates
  • Separate log-in for authorized, non-students like family or friends who make payments on an account
  • Ability to update account preferences or make payment plan adjustments online
  • Access to 24-hour telephone support

Payment plans are specific to each term and include as many as 6 monthly payments per semester.

Contact your campus Cashiers Office with any questions about the new online payment plan. Detailed instructions on how to enroll in the new online payment plan will be updated on this page in the coming weeks.
