2016–2017 Tuition Rates

Additional Fees

A $10.00 per credit online course fee will be assessed for all online-Internet (I) courses. A $6.00 per semester insurance fee will be assessed to students taking at least one course which has a scheduled session on campus.

Payment Information

Students are responsible for payment of course fees and tuition for all courses in which they are enrolled. If a student chooses not to attend a class or ceases to attend class, the student will need to notify the NTC Records and Registration Office to officially drop the class and to receive a refund. The amount of refund will depend on the date the course is dropped (see our refund policy for more information).

Payment Options

  • If you are taking at least three credits and are enrolled in a one or two-year program, you may be eligible for financial aid. Contact the Financial Aid Office at 715.675.3331, Ext. 5862 for more information. Financial aid eligible students will have payment deferred until financial aid is applied to student accounts.
  • Pay by credit card online through e-Cashier.
  • Pay by credit card or bank account with online enrollment in the Nelnet payment plan. Visit e-Cashier for more information.
  • Mail a check to NTC, 1000 Campus Drive, Attn: Cashiers Office, Wausau, WI 54401 or stop at your nearest campus to pay in person

    Paying by check authorizes Northcentral Technical College to send the information from your check electronically to your bank for payment. Your account will be debited via electronic funds transfer in the amount of your check and the transaction will appear on your bank statement. Your original check will be destroyed once processed and you will not receive your cancelled check back. Please be aware that all checking transactions will remain secure, and payment by check constitutes acceptance of these terms. If someone other than you pays your bill, you must give a copy of this notice to them before the payment is sent to us.

Payment Due Dates

If you are taking less than three credits, tuition is due at the time of registration. If you are taking three or more credits, tuition is due 15 days before the first day of class or immediately upon registration if less than two weeks to the start of class.
