  • You must have sufficient funds in your account on the due date for your monthly payment, or NBS and your bank will charge you an NSF fee.
  • Proceed to start an NBS payment plan Online.
Option 6 - Pay with Financial Aid

Tuition/fees will be deferred provided the following has been met two weeks before the tuition due date:

An Institutional Student Information Record (ISIR) must be received electronically
by the Financial Aid Office at least 1 week prior to the tuition due date.  This report
is the result of a submitted financial aid Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).  
Apply online ​early at www.fafsa.ed.gov and allow 2 weeks for ISIR processing.  

You are responsible for completing the Financial Aid process as requested.  Any tuition and fee balance not covered by financial aid is your responsibility.

Option 7 - Third Party Billing & Payments

Students who receive funding from scholarships, sponsoring agencies, or organizations will have their tuition deferred. Authorizations should be submitted using the Saint Paul College Authorization for Payment (PDF) or a similar form that provides the same information. It is the student's responsibility to ensure that the Tuition Office receives the proper authorization from the third party one week before the Tuition due date.

Notice to All Students

Invoices are not mailed. You must check your account balance online and pay any balance due by the posted due dates on the academic calendar.

  • You are responsible to cancel your registration by the posted due dates in the course schedule or to pay any balance due. Non-attendance or non-payment is not a cancellation and you will be held responsible to pay any amount owed.
  • A late fee will be charged if your account has any unpaid charges not covered by a deferment. For example:
    • You didn't sign up for enough money to be taken from your bank account by the NBS payment plan.
    • Your bank account was NSF at the time NBS attempted to take your payment.
    • You made changes to your registration resulting in additional charges that were not covered by one of the 7 options.
    • Your financial aid or third party award was insufficient to cover your tuition, leaving an unpaid balance.
    • You had loans available but didn't sign the promissory note to activate the loan, leaving an unpaid balance.
    • You registered for classes, didn't pay by the due date, were deregistered, and want to be registered again.
  • Re-registering after being deregistered: When you were taken out of your classes, there was a hold put on your account. You may re-register by first coming to the Tuition Office. We will lift the hold if you can provide secured funds, adequate financial aid, or authorization papers.
  • A hold on your account will be applied for any unpaid balance and your account will be turned over to an external collection agency.
