Installment Payment Plan

INSTALLMENT PAYMENT PLAN – REVISED EFFECTIVE FALL 2015

The Installment Payment Plan allows students to pay tuition and fees in installments.  The first payment is due at the time the student signs the Payment Plan promissory note.  The remaining balance due is to be paid in installments during the semester.  Payment plans are not offered to students who are registered in Summer Term A  or Summer Term B ONLY,  winter session or Nicholls Online.  Making a payment equal to the first installment without signing the promissory note, is NOT automatic enrollment in an installment payment plan.  A signed promissory note is required to be enrolled.

The procedure to enroll in an installment payment plan is as follows:

  • student is to go to the Controller’s Office to have the amount calculated
  • payment of the first installment – 50% plus the $50 service charge is to be made
  • payment methods – cash, check, money order at the Fee Collection Center or online using credit card or web check
  • once student provides verification that payment of initial amount has been made, the promissory note will be processed and the plan applied to the student’s Banner account

Payments not received by the due date will be considered late.    A Payment Plan late payment fee of $25 per month, not to exceed $100, will be charged for payments not received as of the close of business on the due date and the 1st  day of each month thereafter.

To request an installment payment plan, the student is to go to the Controller’s Office, 142 Elkins Hall and ask to see someone who can process a payment plan.  Students may also call the Controller’s Office at 985-448-4066 for additional information.
