EZ Pay

About EZ Pay

HFC's EZ Pay program makes managing your educational expenses easy, affordable, and automatic. EZ Pay is a low-cost tuition management and planning system that allows you to set up a personalized budgeting plan to pay your tuition and fees.

There are no loans, credit checks, or finance charges associated with EZ Pay; the only cost you will incur is a $30 per semester nonrefundable enrollment fee, which will be deducted within 14 days from the day you enroll.

EZ Pay Options

You can set up EZ Pay payments directly with your financial institution through Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) or with your credit card. Payments are processed on the 5th day of each month, and you can expect to see them reflected in your student account 5 business days after the payment has been taken from your bank or credit card. Payments will continue until the EZ Pay contract balance is paid in full.

Automatic Bank Payment (ACH)

ACH payments are payments you authorize to be processed directly with your financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds; no one other than your own financial institution has access to your bank account. You determine and approve the exact amount to pay and EZ Pay will process the payment on a pre-determined date each month. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account.

Credit Card

EZ Pay also allows you to charge your monthly tuition payment to a credit card. Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover are accepted.

Ez Pay Cost

Your required down payment is based on a percentage of your tuition and fee charges. Use the EZ Pay Payment Calculator to figure out your monthly payments. The earlier you enroll in EZ Pay the smaller the down payment.

If you would like to make changes to your budget plan go to your account Log in to HFC Self-Service Payment Plan & Billing, and choose "Proceed to Processor".

Missed Payments

If you miss a payment, you will receive a letter from Nelnet with instructions on how the missed payment will be handled. A $30.00 missed payment fee will be assessed for each missed payment attempt. This fee is charged to offset the fees assessed by the bank when your payment is missed.

Enroll in EZ Pay

Log in to HFC Self-Service, choose "Proceed to Processor" under Payment Plan & Billing, and follow the instructions.

You will need the following information:

  • Your HFC username and password. For help see the password help page.
  • The name, home, and email address of the person responsible for making the payments.
  • If paying by automatic bank payments (ACH), 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.

After you have accepted the Terms and Conditions and submitted your agreement, you will receive an immediate email (if your email address was provided). This email will confirm receipt of your enrollment in EZ Pay.

EZ Pay Calculator

The EZ Pay calculator will calculate the down payment and installment payments. If classes change and the amount is increased or decreased, the change will be automatically updated in the future installments.

The EZ Pay program is closed after the last EZ Pay Date of the term. For more information, read about the program details here.
