Monthly Payment Plan

Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) Interest-Free Monthly Payment Plan

To help you meet your educational expenses, Mount Wachusett Community College has partnered with Nelnet Business Solutions/FACTS to offer a convenient payment plan. This is not a loan program. You have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The cost to budget your interest-free monthly payment plan is a $30 per semester nonrefundable enrollment fee.

Please Note:  If you make any changes to your schedule after you sign up for the payment plan, the plan will not be adjusted automatically. Please call Student Accounts at 978-630-9386 and they will be happy to make any adjustments to your FACTS Nelnet Payment Plan on the FACTS website.

You May Budget Your Tuition and Fees In The Following Ways:

A. Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) – ACH payments are those payments you have authorized FACTS 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 Mount Wachusett Community College. 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.

B. Credit Card Option – Paying with your credit card gives you the option of taking advantage of any bonus programs that may be offered by your credit card company. Your monthly payment will be automatically charged to the credit card you designate. Payments will be charged on the 5th of each month until the balance is paid in full.
