Payment Methods

Online: Northeast Iowa Community College offers students the opportunity to pay their tuition and fees online via Self Service for Students, under Student Finance. NICC accepts debit card, credit card, or ACH (checking account) electronic bank transfer.

Mail a check, bank cashier's check or money order to the Finance Office:

Northeast Iowa Community College
Attn: Finance Office
1625 Hwy 150 S
PO Box 400
Calmar, IA 52132

In person at the Finance Office: Calmar Darwin Schrage Administration Building or Peosta Bookstore.

Third-Party Billing (Contract): Third party billing is the process whereby Northeast Iowa Community College bills an outside organization/company for all or a portion of a student’s tuition, fee and/or books. Third party arrangements must be established and approval documentation received prior to NICC processing to your student account. Third party documentation should be provided to Student Services.

Payment Plan: Northeast Iowa Community College partners with Nelnet Business Solutions to offer students a tuition & fee payment plan option. Make college more affordable by paying for tuition and fees over time. Tuition payment plans break down your tuition balance into affordable monthly payments. There’s no interest, payment options are flexible, setup fees are affordable, and it’s easy to enroll! The Nelnet payment plan is also an option if you have a balance remaining after financial aid and/or sponsorship. For more information, visit the My College Payment Plan site.

Outside Scholarships: Outside scholarship (e.g. Dollars for Scholars, local organization) checks made payable to NICC or NICC and Student need to be mailed to:

Northeast Iowa Community College
Attn: Finance Office
1625 Hwy 150 S
PO Box 400
Calmar, IA 52132

If you receive the check it may be dropped off for receipting to your student account at the Calmar Finance Office or Peosta Bookstore. Please be sure to endorse with your name if the check was made payable to both the student and NICC. Please include student ID number.

**NICC recommends that outside scholarship checks be made only payable to NICC so as not to delay receipting. Due to online courses and remote locations, including the students name requires further contact which could delay receipting.

529 Plans: Students and families using 529 plans to cover educational costs should reach out to their 529 provider to initiate the process of withdrawing funds.

Many providers require a copy of the billing statement to determine eligible expenses or specific line-item costs. Please submit your statement from Self Service to your provider. If you are seeking preliminary estimates of tuition, fees, and/or room and board costs, please visit our website. Should additional information be necessary beyond the billing statement, please email us at studentaccts@nicc.edu.

Payments from 529 plans should be sent to the following address. Please ensure that the student’s full name and ID are included on the check.
