Plans will not be available until an account balance is present on the student’s account.

You can sign up for a payment plan and pay via ACH (direct debit from your bank account), credit or debit card. You can make a one-time payment as well using the same payment methods.

  • Enrollment fee = $45.00
  • Late payment fee = $25.00

A non-refundable PayPath service charge of 2.85% (minimum $3.00) will be added to your card payment. You will be given an opportunity to approve your payment prior to processing. Concordia also accepts ACH bank transfers without charge.

Payments through any method will reduce your plan amount automatically. Any payment you make to Concordia, outside of the Payment Plan on TouchNet, will not be counted towards your next installment. However, it will reduce that amount of your future installments equally.

At enrollment, the payment plan is calculated on the balance owed after all payments and/or financial aid credits are deducted from the amount due. Financial aid awarded after the initiation of the plan reduces all installments equally.

Your payments are posted immediately as soon as a payment is processed successfully.

Installments reopen if their due dates have not passed and you have new charges on your student account.

The plan is set up to pay your charges for a number of items, such as tuition, fees, (and books, if you have financial aid). Any time you have new charges for those items, your plan installment amounts will increase. Any time you have payments or other new credits toward those items, your installment amounts will decrease.  Balances on your student account recalculate overnight. If you do not see changes right away, check your account again in 24 hours. Monthly installment amounts will not adjust 14 days prior to a payment due date for changes to your account.  Your new payment amount will take effect on the following month’s payment.

Please note that the Concordia plan prevents you from making another payment on the same day to prevent over-payment or double payment.

An email notification is sent following each recalculation reflecting the new payment amount.  You will also receive a reminder email that your monthly installment is due 3 days prior to the installment due date.

Students may setup authorized users to view their billing information and/or their student bill on his or her behalf. Please note that, in accordance with FERPA, this does not allow the authorized user to view the student’s academic records, course schedule, or other personal information. Authorized users may view student account activity, make payments, and set up payment plans.

Instructions: Login to CobberNet, then click the TouchNet link at the top of the next page, click the ‘Authorized User’ link in the ‘My Account’ menu.  Click ‘Add Authorized User’, enter the email address of the authorized user, and you will grant the user permission to view student account information.  Click ‘Continue’ to finalize.

Students cannot make payments toward a plan set up by an authorized user.  If your authorized user enrolled in the plan, you can see it, but the authorized user must make the payments.

Your parents can access your account here.

The student may sign up for the plan themselves and then give access to each parent as an authorized user. Each parent will pay his or her personally agreed upon portion of the plan each month.

You have to withdraw formally from classes. Contact the Center for Student Success at success@cord.edu or 218-299-4551 to ensure that you are no longer enrolled and that you are removed from your payment plan. Please do not assume your registration and/or payment plan will be automatically dropped/cancelled for non-payment.
