Late fee = $25
Does NDMU charge a credit card service fee if I use my credit card to enroll in a payment plan?

Can I pay by cash if I signed up for a payment plan?
Yes - you may stop at the Business Office anytime to pay by cash. Payments through any method will reduce your plan amount automatically.
Can I still enroll in a plan if I have Financial Aid? How does that affect my plan?
At enrollment, the payment plan is calculated on the balance owed after all payments and/or estimated financial aid credits are deducted from the amount due. Students will need to review their account to ensure their aid is posted.
When will my payment post to my student account?
Your payments are posted immediately as soon as a payment is processed successfully.
Why do I see an amount due for an installment I already paid?
Installments reopen if their due dates have not passed and you have new charges on your student account.
The plan is set up to pay your charges for a number of items, such as tuition, fees, (and books, if you have financial aid). Any time you have new charges for those items, your plan installment amounts will increase. Any time you have payments or other new credits toward those items, your installment amounts will decrease. Balances on NDMU’s account recalculate overnight. If you do not see changes right away, check your account again in 24 hours. Monthly installment amounts will not adjust 10 days prior to a payment due date for changes to your account. Your new payment amount will take effect on the following month’s payment.
Please note that the NDMU plan prevents you from making another payment on the same day to prevent overpayment or double payment.
An email notification is sent following each recalculation reflecting the new payment amount. You will also receive a reminder email that your monthly installment is due 3 days prior to the installment due date.
Can my family or other authorized users have access to my Student Account?
Students may setup authorized users to view their billing information and/or their student bill on his or her behalf. Please note that, in accordance with FERPA, this does not allow the authorized user to view the student’s academic records, course schedule, or other personal information. Authorized users may view student account activity, make payments, and set up payment plans.
Students cannot make payments toward a plan set up by an authorized user. If your authorized user enrolled in the plan, you can see it, but the authorized user must make the payments.
Can my parents both pay on one payment plan?
The student may sign up for the plan himself or herself and then give access to each parent as an authorized user. Each parent will pay his or her personally agreed upon portion of the plan each month.
What if I no longer want to attend classes after registration?
You have to withdraw formally from classes. Contact the Registrar and the Business Office to ensure that you are no longer enrolled and that you are removed from your payment plan. Please do not assume your registration and/or payment plan will be automatically dropped/cancelled for non-payment.
