Tuition Payment Plan


Wake Tech is proud to offer a tuition payment plan as a convenient tool for budgeting and meeting your education expenses. The tuition payment plan will be available November 1st - January 3rd for Spring 2018 registration.  This is not a loan program. You incur no debt. There are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The cost for your interest-free monthly payment plan is $25 per semester, a nonrefundable fee for Nelnet account enrollment.

You may pay your tuition and fees in the following ways:

Credit Card Option: Paying with your credit card (Visa, Mastercard, or Discover) gives you the option of taking advantage of any bonus programs that may be offered by your credit card company. Your monthly payment will be automatically charged to the credit card you designate. Payments will be charged on the 20th of each month until the balance is paid in full.

Debit Card Option: Paying with your debit card bearing the Visa, Mastercard, or Discover logo gives you the flexibility to pay through your checking account. Your monthly payment will be automatically charged to the debit card you designate. Payments will be charged on the 20th of each month until the balance is paid in full.

IMPORTANT: If you enroll in the Tuition Payment Plan and need to add or drop classes, or decide to pay the remaining balance, you must update your Nelnet agreement at least two days before the date of the next automatic draft. To update your agreement, go to WebAdvisor and click on “Pay with Payment Plan.”


When and what time will the funds be withdrawn from my bank account?
The tuition payment plan specifies the date each payment will occur, but it is your financial institution that determines the time of day the payment is debited. The tuition payment plan recommends you check with your financial institution to determine how far in advance funds should be deposited into your account to ensure the automatic payment clears. If a payment date falls on a weekend or banking holiday, the payment will be attempted the following business day.

How will I be notified of my payment information?
Once your agreement is posted to the tuition payment plan system, you will receive a confirmation notification of your payment amount by e-mail. Payments will be processed according to the schedule above until the total balance is paid in full. The notification also serves as a reminder that a $25 per semester nonrefundable Nelnet Account Enrollment Fee will be processed from the account indicated on the agreement. You will also receive email reminders of payment due dates.

If I withdrawal from or do not attend my classes do I still have to make a scheduled payment?  
If you choose to withdrawal from your classes or stop attending classes and there is a balance due, any amount due will be charged by Nelnet per the agreement.

Why is Nelnet requiring a $55 payment to enroll?  If you enrolled in the Payment Plan in a prior semester and had a returned payment (i.e. insufficient funds), you may have a balance due to Nelnet for a $30 service fee for returned payments.  Nelnet requires that you pay this balance before you are allowed to set up a new payment plan.

Can I pay by phone with the tuition payment plan?
The tuition payment plan does not accept payments by phone. In accordance with the Terms & Conditions of your tuition payment plan agreement, payments are processed electronically.

Why does WebAdvisor show a balance due, but Nelnet Payment Plan does not show a balance due? 
The most common reason is due to unaccepted financial aid.  If you have a Direct Loan award in Offered status, it is considered pending and applied to your tuition balance for Payment Plan purposes.  This may result in a $0 balance due or a credit balance appearing on the Payment Plan screen.  If the Nelnet Payment Plan is showing a $0 balance due because of offered loans, and you do not want to take out a loan, then you must reject your offered loans via My Financial Aid in WebAdvisor.  Once you complete this action you should be able to complete enrollment in the Payment Plan.   


  • Enroll in the Tuition Payment Plan online by logging into WebAdvisor.  Then select “Financial Information” then “My Student Account,” then “Student Finance,” then “Pay With  Plan.(Nelnet)” At this point there will be a link: “Proceed to Payment Plan.” Be sure to have the following information:
  • The name, address, and e-mail address of the person responsible for making the payments..
