Online Installment Payment Plan
Set up is quick and easy! You can pay your tuition for the semester in monthly installments. These monthly payments are automatically withdrawn from the account of your choosing (bank account or credit/debit card) over the course of the semester. A $30 set up fee will be charged at time of set up.
Pay in Person
Stop into the Bursar’s Office during our business hours. We are located in Sweeney Hall, next to the Bistro. We accept cash, check, credit/debit card (Mastercard/VISA and Discover).
Want to drop-off a payment after hours? No problem! Use our secure drop box located outside of the entrance to the Bursar’s Office. Please do not use this option for cash payments!
Pay with a Check
Please make checks payable to NHTI, note your student ID# on the check, and mail it to:
Attn: NHTI Bursar Office
31 College Drive
Concord, NH 03301
If you are paying your past-due balance by check, your financial hold will be lifted 10 days from the date of your payment.

Returned/Insufficient Funds Check Policy
Whenever any check, draft, or money order issued in payment of any fee or for any purpose is returned to NHTI, NHTI shall charge a fee of $35 in addition to the amount of the check, draft, or money order to the person presenting the check, draft, or money order to NHTI to cover the costs of collection.
Tuition is always due two weeks prior to the first class day of the semester/session. NHTI does not send paper bills. It is the students’ responsibility to view tuition, fees, and housing charges in their SIS account and make payment by the due date. Students who do not have a payment arrangement by the due date may incur a $50 late fee.
When a student registers after the payment due date, a payment arrangement (payment in full, financial aid or the online installment payment plan) must be made within one week of registration.
If someone else is paying for your tuition, you have the option to set that person up as an authorized payer. This will allow that person the ability to view charges, make a one-time online payment, or set up a payment plan:
- Log into your SIS.
- Select Student Account.
- Select View and Pay Account.
- Click on Add an Authorized Party.
If you already have an authorized payer account but need your password reset, please visit Nelnet Campus Commerce:
- Click on Sign In.
- Select Forgot Username/Password.
- Enter email address associated with the account.
- A link to create a new password will be automatically emailed.
NHTI adheres to the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) that gives students access to their education records and control over the disclosure of their information. This includes information about account charges, credits, and financial aid.
For our office staff to be able to speak with anyone other than you as the student regarding your account, you must sign and file a Release of Student Information form with the Registrar’s Office. Please note that this is needed in addition to setting a parent/guardian as an Authorized Payer.
The NHTI Bookstore, located in the Learning Commons Library building, is a separate entity from NHTI. The Bursar’s Office cannot add book charges to your student account. Books and supplies have to be purchased directly at the bookstore.
You are responsible for the purchase of all books and supplies required for the courses in which you are enrolled. The estimated cost of these books and supplies varies depending on the academic program. Students in health-related programs, for example, will have additional expenses such as uniforms and instruments.
NHTI Bookstore personnel can provide estimates for the cost of books for a given major. Contact the bookstore at 603-224-8231.
Note: If financial aid is not available in time to purchase your books or if you don’t have excess financial aid after your tuition and fees are paid, you must plan accordingly for that expense.
Unpaid student accounts are sent to collections at the end of the semester. Significant additional collection fees may be incurred, and the outstanding balance will be reported to the Credit Bureau.
Students will be required to sign the following statement when completing a variety of NHTI forms, including Registration, Add/Drop, Deferred Payment Agreements, Financial Aid Deferment/Awards, and Withdrawal:
I agree that by registering for courses within the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH), I am financially obligated for all costs related to the registered course(s). Upon a drop or withdrawal, I agree that I will be responsible for all charges as noted in the student catalog and handbook. I further understand that if I do not make payment in full, my account may be reported to the credit bureau and/or turned over to an outside collection agency. I also agree to pay for the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage of the debt up to a maximum of 35%, and all additional costs and expenses, including any protested check fees, court filing costs and reasonable attorney’s fees, which will add significant costs to my account balance.
Delinquent Account Collection Policy
Any account balance 90 days past due may be turned over to an independent, outside collections agency. When this happens, no payments will be accepted by NHTI. The cost of the outside collection agency, any legal fees, and any bounced check fees will be added to the total amount owed. The debt will be reported to the Credit Bureau.
Students will not be eligible to receive official transcripts or register for courses at NHTI and other CCSNH colleges until they have paid their account in full.
For a collection balance at NHTI, after all financial obligations have been satisfied, students who wish to return to NHTI will be required to prepay in full for one semester at the time of registration. Students will only be able to defer payments when all financial aid requirements have been satisfied. Any remaining balance must be paid in full. After one semester, the student will be in good standing with NHTI. The student will then become eligible for the online FACTS Installment Payment Plan and Financial Aid Deferment using all awards except Federal Work Study.
