Online Payments

Pay online at your convenience, by Credit Card or Bank Account (ACH).

  • Log on to myNECC using your student ID# and Password
  • Scroll down and click on the “Pay My Bill Online” icon (be sure that the pop up block on the web browser is off.)
  • Click on “Make Payment”

Important: Our credit card processor PayPath/Heartland charges a 2.85 percent service fee for processing each credit or debit card payment. There is a minimum charge amount of $3.00. During the payment process, the fee will be added to your payment amount, but it will be disclosed separately from your tuition and fee payment on your credit card statement. The fee is retained by PayPath/Heartland and NECC does not receive any portion of this fee. 

Electronic Check (ACH) payment is a free online payment alternative. Make payment online with an electronic check using a checking or savings account. We strongly recommend you to pay online using this option in order to avoid the processing fee.
