Paying for Education

Payment Plans

All tuition and fees are assessed at the time of registration for classes and payment is due by the published due date. A student may enroll in an automatic payment plan for a fee. A student using a payment plan is required to make all payments on time. A student who does not keep current with payments may not be eligible to register for a subsequent semester.

Garrett College has contracted with the Nelnet (NBS) Tuition Plan, which allows students to make payments with multiple installments. To set up a payment plan, students need to complete the online Garrett College/NBS application and pay the along with the $25 nonrefundable enrollment fee. The remaining balance of tuition and fees will be payable in the set number of installments as established by the payment agreement.

Availability of the payment plan is determined by Garrett College. Please be aware the college may elect not to have the payment plan available during specific times and dates during registration. More information about the payment plan is below:
