Once you have decided to enroll/waive your insurance, please go to the Gallagher Student website at www.gallagherstudent.com/NEC.  Please be aware that access to this site is only available from end of June to August, and again in January (only for students enrolling in the spring semester).

Refund checks

Refund checks are issued when there is an overpayment on a student account or an acceptance of financial aid. Refund checks will be available (providing that funds have been disbursed to your account) only after the first to second week of school and throughout each semester as funds are disbursed to the student accounts.

Payment Plan

If you cannot make your tuition payment all at once, you may enroll in a payment program through Tuition Management Systems.  Once enrolled, you can pay your tuition balance in ten monthly installments.  There is a $110 enrollment fee and the payments are interest free.  You may contact them directly through their website: www.necmusic.afford.com or call them at 1-800-722-4867.  Enrollment in the program must be completed prior to the due date on the Student Billing invoice due date.
