Make College Easier to Pay For with a Tuition Payment Plan.

Make college more affordable by paying for tuition and fees over time. Tuition payment plans break down your tuition balance into affordable monthly payments. There's no interest, payment options are flexible, setup fees are affordable, and it's easy to enroll!

Tuition Management
Chaffey College is now offering the NBS Automatic Monthly Payment Plan as an alternative to a direct payment by cash, check or credit card.

NBS enables you to pay your tuition in monthly installments if you meet the following criteria:

  • You are a credit student for the summer, fall or spring semesters and have incurred tuition fees.
Depending on when you register for classes and submit your Nelnet Payment Agreement, either of the following payment plans may apply.

  • Monthly payments only
  • An immediate down payment followed by monthly payments
There are no interest or finance charges assessed, but a $30 fee will be charged for all returned payments.  There is also a nonrefundable enrollment fee of $20 per semester.  NBS will automatically deduct the funds from a checking or savings account, Mastercard, Visa, Discover Card, or American Express.

Payment Methods

  • Automatic bank payment (ACH)
  • Credit card/debit card
Payments are processed automatically on the 5th of each month.

Cost to Participate

  • $20 enrollment fee per semester
  • $2 enrollment fee for an immediate full payment
  • Nonrefundable returned payment fee if a payment is returned
A new payment plan must be set up for each semester.

You must have a minimum balance of $100 to budget through the payment plan.
