New payment options!
Nelnet Business Solutions (formerly FACTS) Online Tuition Management
Introduction to Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS)
To help you meet your educational expenses, Hill College is pleased to offer
NBS (formerly FACTS) as a convenient online payment option. Students who
choose to use NBS may select installment plans that are spread over several
months, depending on the length of the semester. They may choose to make
payments from their checking or savings account or by Visa, Mastercard,
American Express or Discover credit cards. In addition to the variety of
choices available, the student also has the convenience of paying online
as soon as he or she has registered.
The only cost to budget monthly payments through NBS is a $35.00 per semester
nonrefundable NBS Enrollment Fee. If you wish to pay in full instead of
creating a monthly payment plan, the charge for using NBS is only $2.00.
There is a $25.00 returned payment fee if a payment is returned.
How NBS Works
First you must register online through
Campus Connect. Next, within Campus
Connect, select the "Review/Pay Account" option under Student Information.
Select the term, review your schedule and statement for accuracy, and then
click on the "Pay by NBS" button. You will be taken to NBS' eCashier payment
After you click the "Pay by NBS" button, e-Cashier will lead you through the
process of creating a NBS agreement. You will need to have the following
- Nine digit Student ID (this may be your social security number).
- The name, address, and e-mail address of the person responsible for making the payments.
- Information to create your NBS Access Code. This needs to be something you can easily remember. It is used to protect your privacy.
- Account information for the person responsible for payment.
- If paying by automatic bank payments, you will need the bank name, telephone number, account number, and the bank routing number. Most of this information is located on your check.
- If paying by credit card, you will need the credit card number and expiration date.
You may budget your tuition and fees one of two ways:
- Automatic Bank Payment (ACH)—ACH payments are those payments you
have authorized NBS to process directly with your financial institution.
It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre-approved
for your expenses at Hill 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—Many payers have requested the option of charging
their monthly tuition payment to their credit card. This enables you to take
advantage of various bonus programs offered by your credit card company. If
you elect to use this option, 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. If you wish to use this
option, you may enroll by registering online through e-Cashier. Credit card
payments are processed by First National Bank of Omaha (“FNBO“)
NOTE—All down and full payments are processed immediately!

At Hill College, we believe NBS will offer many advantages to our students.
Here are some of them:
- Students may spread their payments over a longer time period and more payments.
- Students may pay online instead of having to come to a Hill College campus.

Availability of e-Cashier is determined by Hill College. Please be aware
the college may elect not to have e-Cashier available during specific times
and dates during registration.
Please do not assume your balance will automatically be adjusted if financial
aid is received or a class is dropped or added. You should review your
agreement balance online through
account or call the Hill College
Cashier's Office at 254-659-7700, in Hillsboro, or 817-760-5700,
in Cleburne, to confirm the change.
When and what time will the funds be withdrawn from my bank account?
NBS specifies the date each payment will occur, but it is your financial
institution that determines the time of day the payment is debited. NBS
recommends you check with your financial institution to determine how far
in advance funds should be deposited into your account to ensure the automatic
payment clears. If a payment date falls on a weekend or banking holiday, the
payment will be attempted the following business day.
How will I be notified of my payment information?
Once your agreement is posted to the NBS system, you will receive a confirmation
notification of your payment amount by e-mail or letter. Payments will be
processed until the total balance is paid in full. The notification has
important information you must have to log on to your
My FACTS Account. The
notification also serves as a reminder that a $35 (1–6 payments) nonrefundable
enrollment fee will be processed from the account indicated on the agreement.
Can I pay by phone with NBS?
In accordance with the Terms & Conditions of your NBS agreement, payments are
processed electronically. NBS does not accept payments by phone.
What is the NBS Access Code?
To help protect your privacy, NBS asks the person responsible for the payments
to create an access code. If you should call into NBS inquiring about your NBS
agreement or inquire online through
My FACTS Account
, you will be required to
verify your NBS Access Code. If you do not create an access code on your NBS
agreement, one will be randomly assigned to you. Your NBS Access Code will be
identified on your NBS Confirmation Notification. Please remember to keep a
copy of your confirmation notification.
