Special announcement

Due to water system failure, Germanna’s Daniel Technology Center in Culpeper will remain closed until further notice. We will provide an updated status on Sunday, Aug. 25th. All other GCC locations will remain open during normal business hours.

Automatic payment plans

Germanna offers payment plan options through Nelnet/TMS.  A payment plan is a convenient and affordable option, allowing you to make automatic, monthly payments to cover tuition and fees.

Manage on germanna.afford.com or call an Education Payment Advisor today at (800) 337 – 0291.

Paying-as-you-go is the best way for students to pay education expenses. The cost to participate is a $35, $40, or a $45 non-refundable enrollment fee per semester, depending on the number of payments.

    Important information and other questions

    Funds paid to the payment plan will not be reflected in the student’s account balance at GCC until after Nelnet/TMS collects and disburses the funds to GCC (*see disbursement dates below).

    It is the student’s responsibility to increase their plan if they add a class or decrease their plan if they drop a class.

    Refunds of overpayment will not be processed until GCC receives the funds.

    GCC may require immediate payment should a plan be terminated or is insufficient to cover the balance due.

Payment methods

  • Automatic bank payment (ACH)
  • Credit card/debit card – Discover, MasterCard, Amex and Visa accepted.

Payments are processed the 16th of the month and will continue until the payment plan is paid in full.  If a credit card is used, a service fee will be assessed on each transaction.
