Paying for College

e-Cashier - Automatic Monthly Payment Plan

Paying for the rising costs of a college education is a concern for nearly every student and family. The fact is few of us have the resources to simply write a check for the full cost of tuition each semester.

Having a solid plan to cover the cost of college is an important step toward graduation. To help you make that step, Hawkeye has partnered with Nelnet Business Solutions, the leading tuition payment plan provider in the industry. Through e-Cashier, a Nelnet Business Solutions product, you can set up a payment plan that works for you.

To help you meet your educational expenses, e-Cashier offers convenient budget planning. This is not a loan program. You have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. Through e-Cashier you will be able to:

  • arrange monthly payments
  • make a down payment and arrange monthly payments
  • pay your balance in full

Monthly Payments

Automatic Bank Payment (ACH)
The automatic bank payment option allows Nelnet Business Solutions to process your monthly payment directly with your financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have preapproved for your expenses at Hawkeye Community College. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full.

Credit Card Option
Paying with your credit card gives you the option of taking advantage of various bonus programs offered by your credit card company. Your monthly payment will be automatically charged to the credit card you designate. Payments will be charged on the 5th of each month until the balance is paid in full.

Cost to participate

  • $25 per semester non-refundable enrollment fee to set up a monthly payment plan
  • $2 enrollment fee for an immediate full payment
  • Nonrefundable returned payment fee if a payment is returned
