Payment Options

Tuition & Fees

The Fall 2024 tuition payment deadline is Friday, August 16, 2024, at 4 pm, which is also the last day of registration and orientation. Tuition and fees must be paid on this day to ensure that you can begin classes on time. 

There are three ways to pay tuition and fees:

Pay in Full

If you choose to pay in full, you may pay your fees in the Business Office using a check, cash, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express). You may also pay online through SelfServe when you register for classes.

Third-Party Source

If your tuition will be paid by a third-party source (church, family member/friend, employer, etc.) but this provider cannot have the funds to you by the payment deadline, the third-party provider must email an intent-to-pay letter to the Financial Aid Office at The letter must be on official letterhead or from an official email (phone calls do not count as intent to pay).

Setting up a Payment Plan Agreement

NOBTS provides a tuition payment plan for a small enrollment fee and no interest. A Payment Plan agreement allows students to divide their tuition into monthly payments rather than having to pay it all at the beginning of the semester. The online Payment Portal is now live with access from the Student Portal.

If you have any questions, please contact the Financial Aid Office at 504.816.8276 or

The payment plan can be set up in one of two ways:

1. Through a Bank Account Draft (ACH)

Payments will be automatically withdrawn from a checking or savings account each month.  

Students CANNOT use a debit card linked to a checking account with the ACH plan because a debit card is regarded as a credit card.  You must have your checking or savings account number and routing number to use the ACH payment.

2.  Through a Credit/Debit Card

Payments will be automatically charged to a credit or debit card each month. 

Because of the credit card convenience fees, all students are advised to use the bank draft option, if at all possible.

Changes to your Payment Plan Agreement

No changes are automatically made once you have set up your Payment Plan agreement.  If you add courses or receive any additional funds on your NOBTS account, your agreement WILL NOT automatically reflect these changes.

Please contact the NOBTS Business Office ( to request changes to your agreement.  We must receive notification of the desired change at least three business days before your scheduled payment.
