Fee Payment

Tuition is to be paid in full by the first day of classes. Check your class schedule for your specific start date. Payment plans are available through MyNicolet. Tuition is due at the time of registration if the student registers after the tuition deadline. Nicolet accepts VISA, Master Card, and Discover for tuition and fees.

Students who are anticipating financial aid or other third-party arrangements to cover tuition and fees must complete the necessary verification and/or forms by the tuition deadline date. The Business Office handles all third-party tuition and fees arrangements. Questions regarding these arrangements should be directed to the Business Office.

The Wisconsin Technical College System Board and/or the District Board prescribe tuition and fees. Out-of-state students pay non-resident tuition except for residents of Minnesota and Michigan where reciprocity tuition agreements apply. Minnesota and Michigan residents pay Wisconsin's resident tuition rate while attending Nicolet College.
