Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) Payment Plan

To Enroll...

Login to MyCCA, click on the Student Finance Tab, select the NBS Payment Plan link, and finally NBS Payment Plan Sign-up.  This will bring you to eCashier. 

Introduction to NBS
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.

How NBS Works

First you must register online through MyCCA. Next, within MyCCA, select the Student Finance tab. Under Payment Options select NBS Payment Plan Sign-up. Select your term and review your statement for accuracy, then click on the "eCashier" logo. You will be taken to NBS' eCashier payment portal.

After you click the "Pay by NBS" button, e-Cashier will lead you through the process of creating a NBS agreement. You will need to have the following information available:

  • Nine character Student ID (S########).
  • The name, address, and e-mail address of the person responsible for making the payments.
  • Information to create your NBS Access Code.
  • Account information for the person responsible for payment.
    • If paying by automatic bank payments you will need the bank name, telephone number, account number, and the bank routing number. Most of this information is located on your check.
    • If paying by credit card, you will need the credit card number and expiration date.

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

  1. 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 Community College of Aurora. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full. 
  2. Credit Card Option—Many payers have requested the option of charging their monthly tuition payment to their credit card. This enables you to take advantage of various bonus programs offered by your credit card company. Payments will be charged on the 5th of each month until the balance is paid in full. If you wish to use this option, you may enroll by registering online through e-Cashier. Credit card payments are processed by American Card Services, Inc.

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.
