Pay Your Balance
Students have many options for paying tuition and fees at CF:
1. NelNet Payment Plan
CF has partnered with NelNet Business Solutions to offer a tuition installment plan to help students afford their education. Students may enroll in the plan for any semester.
Using NelNet, you can pay your tuition and fees over time via monthly payments.
Students can set up payment by credit/debit card or automatic bank payment (ACH)
Steps to Enroll:
- Log in to your myCF Student Portal.
- Click on the Finances tab.
- Under Nelnet Interface, click on Payment Plans.
- Create a NelNet account.
- Enroll in Payment Plan.
Cost to Participate:
Depending on the number of payments, there is an enrollment fee per semester. The Summer 2021 fee ranges from $30-$40, depending on when you enroll. If a payment is returned, there is a $30 returned payment fee.
The earlier a student enrolls, the more options are available! To see enrollment deadlines, required down payments, and other payment details, visit MyCollegePaymentPlan.com/cf. Please note that all down and full payments are processed immediately.
