Introduction to Nelnet Business Solutions
To help you meet your educational expenses, Community College of Aurora is pleased to offer Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) as a convenient online payment option. Students who choose to use NBS may select installment plans that are spread over several months, depending on the length of the semester. They may choose to make payments from their checking or savings account or by Visa, Mastercard, or Discover credit cards. In addition to the variety of choices available, the student also has the convenience of paying online as soon as he or she has registered.

The only cost to budget monthly payments through NBS is a $25.00 per semester nonrefundable NBS Enrollment Fee. If you wish to pay in full instead of creating a monthly payment plan there is no additional fee charged.

Visit the NBS page for CCA for additional information.

At CCA, we believe NBS will offer many advantages to our students. Here are some of them:

  1. The number of credit cards has increased. Discover may now be used to pay expenses through NBS in addition to Visa and Mastercard.
  2. Students may spread their payments over a longer time period and more payments.
  3. Students may pay online instead of having to come to a CCA campus.

When and what time will the funds be withdrawn from my bank account?

NBS specifies the date each payment will occur, but it is your financial institution that determines the time of day the payment is debited. NBS recommends you check with your financial institution to determine how far in advance funds should be deposited into your account to ensure the automatic payment clears. If a payment date falls on a weekend or banking holiday, the payment will be attempted the following business day.

How will I be notified of my payment information?

Once your agreement is posted to the NBS system, you will receive a confirmation notification of your payment amount by e-mail or letter. Payments will be processed until the total balance is paid in full. The notification has important information you must have to log on to your MyNBSAccount. The notification also serves as a reminder that a $25 (1–6 payments) nonrefundable enrollment fee will be processed from the account indicated on the agreement.

Can I pay by phone with NBS?

In accordance with the Terms & Conditions of your NBS agreement, payments are processed electronically. NBS does not accept payments by phone.

What is the NBS Access Code?

To help protect your privacy, NBS asks the person responsible for the payments to create an access code. If you should call into NBS inquiring about your NBS agreement or inquire online through MyNBSAccount, you will be required to verify your NBS Access Code. If you do not create an access code on your NBS agreement, one will be randomly assigned to you. Your NBS Access Code will be identified on your NBS Confirmation Notification. Please remember to keep a copy of your confirmation notification.
