Payment Information

All non-DOI employees are required to pay a tuition fee when a ‘Cost to Learner’ is displayed in the Course Description. When applicable, payment may be made in a variety of ways:

  1. Credit Card: ** NCTC is able to accept online credit card payments for tuition. **
    You will receive information on how to pay upon confirmation of your enrollment.  To avoid the cancellation of your enrollment, payment is due 30 calendar days prior to the start of your class.
      • You may also pre-pay course tuition fees through the purchase of a Pre-Paid Tuition Voucher. More information can be found via the NCTC Online Store.
      • All tuition vouchers are valid for two (2) years from the date of purchase.
  2. Purchase Order:
    If paying by purchase order please submit a copy of this order to nctc_billing@fws.gov, along with supporting documentation specifying the course name, date, location, and participant’s name(s).

  3. Invoice:
    You will not receive an invoice until you are successfully enrolled in a course.  NCTC prefers the receipt of payment via the NCTC Online Store with the use of a credit card.  If you cannot pay using the NCTC Online Store, please email nctc_billing@fws.gov  for other payment options. 

  4. SF-182:
    A complete SF-182 (Including Treasury Symbol) can be emailed to the NCTC Training Division at nctc_billing@fws.gov.  Please include your Tax ID number and DUNS number if paying using an SF-182.  If the funding needs to be collected via an IPAC (Intra-Governmental Payment and Collection System), please indicate this when the form is emailed to NCTC.  NCTC prefers the receipt of payment via the NCTC Online Store with the use of a credit card. 

Cancellation Policy

Please pay your tuition/fees no later than 30 calendar days before the start date of the course to avoid the cancellation of your enrollment. 

If you must cancel your training, please provide written notification through email as early as possible.   You may send cancellation requests to nctc_training@fws.gov, or you may work directly with the training technician you have been in contact with regarding your course. To receive a full refund for a fee-based course, your cancellation notification must be received at least thirty days prior to the course start date.   There are no refunds for cancellation notifications received after that time frame for no-shows.  However, substitutions are permitted any time up to the course start date.

All tuition and cancellation related questions may be directed to nctc_training@fws.gov or you may call (304) 870-7101.
