Payment Plan


Georgia College is aware of the financial burden of a college education.  In an effort to offer an alternative payment option, Georgia College partners with Nelnet Business Solutions to offer our students and families a tuition payment plan each semester.  This plan will allow students and families to avoid the traditional lump-sum payments and spread this payment evenly for up to four months.

The Nelnet Tuition Payment Plan option permits students and families to budget costs for tuition, fees, room and board that may not be covered by other financial aid.  The program is not a loan so there are no interest or finance charges, and there is no credit check.  The cost to enroll in this plan is $50, $60 or $70 per semester (depending on when you enroll), and monthly payments can be made from an automatic bank account draft or charged to a credit card.

Payment plan enrollment beginning and ending dates vary year to year and are communicated to students via email as well as displayed on our website each semester.  Typically, the enrollment dates are as follows for each semester:

 Fall Semester – begins mid-May and ends the first week of August
 Spring Semester – begins mid-October (in conjunction
 with registration) and ends  in late December
 Summer Semester – begins early March (in conjunction with
 registration) and ends in early May

The payment plan option is most beneficial when participants enroll early.
