Payment Plan Information

Payment Methods

  • Automatic bank payment (ACH)- Payments that you have authorized Nelnet Campus Commerce to process directly with your financial institution. It is simply an automatic bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre-approved for your expenses at Southeastern Community College. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account.
  • Credit card/debit card- 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/debit card you designate.

Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full.

The minimum balance a student may budget is $100.

Cost to Participate

  • $25 enrollment fee per term (ACH & credit card)
