Payment options


Going to college takes money, but the rewards from your college degree won't be measured in dollars and cents alone. You'll find it was worth every penny to complete it.

Parkland College helps you navigate paying for those first two years of college, to get a great education at an affordable price. 

Tuition Payment Plan

Parkland College provides a payment plan system through Nelnet Business Solutions. This system is a tuition management plan that provides you with a low cost option for budgeting tuition and other educational expenses. It is not a loan program. You incur no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The only cost to budget monthly payments is a $25 per semester nonrefundable enrollment fee. For more information see Tuition Payment Plan or call 217/351-2233.
