Nelnet (FACTS) Terms and Conditions

Enrollment: You must enroll in the plan for every term you wish to participate.

Tuition Only: Book charges cannot be paid through Nelnet (FACTS).

Enrollment Fee: A $25 non-refundable fee automatically deducted from account immediately upon signing up for a Nelnet (FACTS) agreement.

Due Dates: Payments due on dates stated online and in literature. No extensions are allowed.

Missed/Returned Payments:

  • Fee: A $30 fee imposed by Nelnet (FACTS) for payments attempted but not obtained.
  • Reattempts: Missed payments are subject to reattempt in 2 weeks. Reattempts do not apply to "Immediate Pay in Full" Option.
  • Consequences: Failure to pay fees or payments owed to Nelnet (FACTS) will result in a hold being placed on the student account and/or referral to the Ohio Attorney General for collection.

Down Payment: May be required for enrollment in Nelnet (FACTS). Varies from term to term. Down payment amounts will NOT take into consideration pending financial aid. After initial payment, pending aid may be factored in for the remaining payments.

Dropped Classes: Student is responsible for remaining Nelnet (FACTS) payments for classes dropped after the "drop with refund" period.

Refunds: Nelnet (FACTS) refunds will be in the form of a check payable to the student.

Balance Adjustments: Nelnet (FACTS) account balance and payments due will be adjusted if account changes such as class additions, class drops, or changes to financial aid occur.

Deadlines:

  • For Enrollment: If student enrolls in classes during on-time registration, enrollment in the Nelnet (FACTS) Payment Plan must be done by the College's specified final payment deadline date.
  • For Adjustments: Changes to the account must be made at least 5 calendar days before the payment date. Otherwise, changes will reflect on the next payment deadline.

Making Payments: Nelnet (FACTS) payments are not made at the Cashiers Office or on Web Advisor. Payments are automatically deducted from the account used when signing up for the Nelnet (FACTS) plan.

  • If tuition is being paid by a party other than the student, an authorized user will need to be added to the Nelnet account.

Successful Plans:

  • A successful plan: must be in place by the given payment deadline date for a given term or at least by the refund date of that same term depending on the student registration date or the student may be subject to deregistration.
  • Multiple agreement attempts: If a student has two unsuccessful Nelnet (FACTS) agreements for the current term, then the student will not be able to use the Nelnet (FACTS) plan and will immediately have to pay in full or may be subject to deregistration.

Subsequent Terms: It is necessary to sign up for a new Nelnet (FACTS) Payment Plan each term. Agreements will be terminated if:

  • Nelnet (FACTS) is unable to obtain enrollment fee
  • Down payments fail on first attempt
  • A regularly scheduled payment and a reattempt fails
  • A balance remains on the student account from a previous term

Agreements terminated for any of the above-listed reasons can result in deregistration from classes. Sinclair can terminate a Nelnet (FACTS) agreement for any given reason at any time and ask for payment in full before the next deregistration.
