General Information

Here’s some additional information about student accounts and payment.

Payments

Students can look up account balances and pay bills through Skyline > Colleague > Student Finance > Make a Payment.  This will take the student to the payment center, called TouchNet. We accept credit, debit, or an electronic check from your checking or savings account. We accept payments online, in person, or mailed in. If mailing in a check, whether personal or from a 529, make the check out to North Central University with the student’s name and ID number in the memo line. Mail payments to:

North Central University
Student Financial Services

You can also make payments by wiring funds or through international bank drafts. Contact us for instructions.

Authorized User

Parents who wish to pay for their student’s school will need to be set up as an Authorized User to get access to any financial information (balance due, Ram Plan, financial aid, etc). Students can set up their parents as an Authorized User in Skyline > Colleague > Student Finance > Make a payment > Authorized user. 

Once a parent is authorized, they will receive an email with their own login information to the payment center, TouchNet. There they can view the student balance, make payments, and set up a Ram Plan.

The Ram Plan

The Ram Plan allows students to spread out their remaining balance with an interest free monthly plan. Fall semester plans have up to five month in payments. Students enroll through their Colleague Self-Service where they can view their student account. Each semester’s payment plan as an affordable $40.00 enrollment fee.

The Fall payment plan begins enrollment mid-July . All payment plans need to be enrolled by the payment deadline on August 14th. The first payment is due on the date you enroll.

Fall Payment plans are automatically deducted on the tenth of every month through December 10. Please see below for the best times to enroll for the payment agreement that fits you.
