Take advantage of this convenient method to help make paying for your education a little easier! Timing is everything, so give yourself enough time to set up the payment plan before your class starts and maximize the amount of time you have to pay for your course(s).
Payment plan options are dependent on the start and end dates of your class or classes. You can only enroll in one payment plan per term (summer, fall, winter or spring). The full guidelines are included below, but we recommend you discuss payment plan options and details with our staff to ensure you enroll in the correct payment plan.

Enrollment/Availability and Requisites
You must enroll in a payment plan before you can register for the noncredit class. There is a $25 nonrefundable administrative fee for enrolling in the payment plan, so you should make sure the class you want is not full before you enroll. Use the course search to determine if a class is still available or contact the Instructional Support Center for assistance.
Some classes require you take another class at the same time (corequisite), successfully complete a different course or attend an orientation session before you can enroll in that course (perquisite). You must make sure that you have completed the appropriate requirements to be eligible to enroll in the class before completing a payment plan. These requirements will be included in the course descriptions found on the course search.
The start date of your class(es) is important because students may not register for noncredit classes after the start date. You should not enroll in a payment plan if the current date is after the start date of any of the classes you would like included in your payment plan.
The end date of your payment plan must be at least one day before the end date of your class. The end date is the final payment in the plan you select in the Payment Schedule portion of the Nelnet payment plan creation process.
If you would like to set up your payment plan to cover the costs of multiple classes in the same term, you will need to use the earliest end date from any of the classes to determine your payment plan end date. Here is an example for your reference:
Course costs are included in descriptions on the AACC course search. Those costs are for students with residency in Anne Arundel County. If you live out of county but still within Maryland, you will need to add an additional $10 per course to your total costs. If you live out of state, you will need to add an additional $25 per course to your total costs.
It is important to calculate your total costs correctly, so please contact the Instructional Support Center if you have questions or need assistance. If you set up your payment plan for less than the total cost of your class(es), you will have to pay the difference at the time of registration. If you set up your payment plan for more than the total cost of your class(es), you will not be issued a refund until your payments through Nelnet exceed your total costs for your class(es).
Below is a checklist to complete before moving to the next step. You must answer yes to all questions to successfully create a payment plan. Additional details and instructions are included above along with contact information for the Instructional Support Center who can also help you answer these questions.
If you answered yes to all of these questions, you may proceed to the next step. If not, contact the Instructional Support Center to see if there is any other way we can assist you with your registration and payment.
Read through the step-by-step process here before proceeding to the Nelnet website:
You should register for your class(es) with AACC as soon as you receive your payment plan confirmation. Our classes can fill quickly and you will not receive a refund for the $25 administrative fee if the class fills before your registration is processed.
To register, submit your payment plan agreement with your noncredit registration form following guidelines on the Noncredit Registration page. You will not be able to register online as our online system cannot currently accept payment plan information as a form of payment. Please use any of the other available methods to submit your registration form as soon as possible.
