are allowed to sign up for an installment plan for tuition and fees through
NELNET Business Solutions, a third party tuition management firm. Students
should contact the college Business Office for details on the NELNET system and
the contract to qualify for the service. Several guidelines have been
established for the NELNET Installment Plan:
Before applying for the installment payment plan, the student
will need to obtain a personal identification number (PIN) from the Registrar’s
Office. Students enrolling for the first time will be given a PIN as soon as
their application is processed and they have been admitted to Brazosport
Use of the NELNET Installment Plan requires the student to have
either a checking, savings or credit card account.
The student must pay a down payment of the total tuition and
fees on NELNET by the dates published in the annual Brazosport College Course
A separate $25 non-refundable fee is charged by NELNET for
processing the installment plan at the same time the down payment is collected.
The remaining tuition and fees are due per the designated
contract after the original down payment.
Students with payment plans who add, drop or cancel their
classes will have their contract automatically adjusted before the next payment
NELNET will assess a $30 missed payment fee for any rejected
Any unpaid balance will be turned over to a collection agency.
The student will be responsible for any collection costs.
By Texas law, “A STUDENT WHO FAILS TO MAKE A FULL PAYMENT OF
TUITION AND FEES, INCLUDING ANY INCIDENTAL FEES, BY THE DUE DATE MAY BE
PROHIBITED FROM REGISTERING FOR CLASSES UNTIL FULL PAYMENT IS MADE. A STUDENT
WHO FAILS TO MAKE PAYMENT PRIOR TO THE END OF THE SEMESTER MAY BE DENIED CREDIT
FOR THE WORK DONE THAT SEMESTER.” Texas Education Code, 54.007(d)
The college will prohibit release of an official transcript
of all credits earned until full payment of all amounts due and payable
under the agreement have been made.
Tuition Installments Payment Plans not paid in full by the final
payment date will be assessed an invoice fee by The College equivalent to one
hour of In-District tuition. ($62 for 2016-2017).
