How to Pay

Cash, Check, or Credit Card

Payments can be made in person at the Cashier's Office, located in the Student Center, by cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express).  Mail-in payments can be made by check (no cash, please).  Please include the student's name and ID# for all mail-in payments.  Credit card and Echeck payments can be made online through OwlNet (All About Me tab, in the My Account channel) or via telephone (credit card only) by calling the Cashier's Office at 443-412-2208.  Early payment is encouraged. 

NBS/FACTS Tuition Plan

The College has contracted with NBS/FACTS Tuition Plan which allows students to make payments with multiple installments for the fall and spring semesters only.  Students need to complete an online NBS/FACTS application form (including application fee) and pay the College one third of the tuition and fee balance by the payment due date for that semester.  The remaining balance will be payable in two or more installments depending on your application date.

This HCC/NBS application must be completed for every semester that you plan to use HCC/NBS.  Your HCC/NBS payment will come directly out of your designated account. The $35.00 HCC/NBS fee will be immediately withdrawn at the time the account is setup.

Changes in your account balance with the college can affect your FACTS payment.  Adding/dropping classes and other charges that affect your balance due to the college may automatically be updated with FACTS and increase or decrease the payment as appropriate.  Please note that automatic updates to FACTS are not guaranteed.   To ensure the FACTS payment is adjusted for adding and dropping classes, the student should fill out a "Change of Status Form" at the Cashiers’ Office.

For students with pending financial aid:  If the financial aid has not been authorized or a Stafford Direct loan has not been posted to your HCC account, the update/termination of your Facts/Nelnet agreement will not automatically occur.  The student should complete a "Change of Status Form" at the Cashiers Office.

Email Notifications:  The student will be notified of changes in their FACTS payments by email.  It is important that the student provide a valid email address and check their email for correspondence regarding their FACTS agreement and upcoming payments.

After your payment plan is established, you can view your agreement online at www.mypaymentplan.com.

The Application must be completed online.  You may apply for the Fall 2014 semester beginning April 28, 2014. The last day to apply for NBS/FACTS for Fall 2014 is September 8, 2014.  The NBS/FACTS website will be closed and unavailable on July 22-23, 2014.  NBS/FACTS is not available for summer or winter sessions.
