Payment Plan Availability

Availability of the payment plan is determined by Palomar Community College District. The college may elect not to have the payment plan during specific times and dates during registration. A student defaulting on a payment plan agreement is subject to the college’s policy for fee payments, may risk being dropped from classes, and will not be eligible to register in future semesters until all outstanding balances are paid in full.

Payment Plan Balance Adjustments

Please do not assume your balance will automatically adjust if financial aid is received or a class is dropped or added. You should review your payment plan agreement online if changes occur to your student account. Unsuccessful scheduled payments will automatically be reattempted within two weeks. Palomar College will not refund any Nelnet fees.

Students:  If someone is paying on your behalf, you MUST first set them up as an Authorized Payer.

Authorized Payers:  If you are paying on behalf of the student, the student must access or set up their account first and then add you as an Authorized Payer.
