College Funds Installment (CFI) Payment Plan

The CFI Payment Plan lets you divide college expenses into smaller monthly payments with no interest charges - just a low enrollment fee.

The payments you make through the CFI Payment Plan are sent to your college or university.

This is not a loan program; it is an installment payment plan.

  • The person paying the bills to the college (the "Payer") must complete the enrollment form.
    (The Payer may be the same or different than the student, but must be at least 18 years of age.)
  • Prior to completing the form online, the Payer must set up his or her CFNC user account and log into the site; information from this account pre-fills most of the enrollment request.
  • Online enrollment requires:
    • a Social Security Number for secure identification of the Payer and the student (if different from the Payer).
    • a U.S. address.

If you are missing any items above or require additional assistance, call us toll-free at 866-866-CFNC (2362)and select options 2, then #, then 0. Representatives are generally available by phone from 8 a.m. - 8 p.m. Monday - Thursday and 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Friday, ET

Nondiscriminatory Policy

Participation in the CFI Payment Plan is approved on a nondiscriminatory basis without regard to race, color, religion, national origin, sex, marital status, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, age, or any other protected characteristics established by law.
