Tuition Payment Plan
The three-month payment plan is available for students registering between July 2 and July 31. You must be registered for your Fall courses before you can enroll in the payment plan. You will make three payments: one-third (plus plan fee) on July 31, one-third on August 20 and the final one-third on September 20.
The two-month payment plan is available for students registering between August 1 and August 9. You must be registered for your Fall courses before you can enroll in the payment plan. You will make two payments: half (plus plan fee) on August 9 and the remaining half on September 20.
Pending financial aid may create a credit balance on your account and prevent enrollment in the plan.
Nelnet charges a $25 nonrefundable enrollment fee each semester you participate in the plan. The fee is added to your first payment. Once enrolled in the plan, subsequent payments are drafted automatically on the payment due date.
NOTE: If you enroll in the Tuition Payment Plan and drop classes or decide to pay the remaining balance, you must update your Nelnet agreement at least two days before the date of the next automatic draft. To update your agreement, go to Self-Service and click on Pay with Payment Plan.
Payment plan options will be available in November for students registered for Spring semester.
The Tuition Payment Plan is is not a loan program – you incur no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed and there is no credit check. The cost to enroll in the payment plan is $25 per semester, a nonrefundable Nelnet account fee that is added to the first payment.
Paying with a credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover) allows you to take advantage of any bonus programs that may be offered by your credit card company or pay with your checking account. Payments will be charged on the 20th of the scheduled payment month, and the amount will be automatically charged to the credit or debit card you designate at enrollment.
- To qualify, you must have a minimum outstanding balance of $25 in tuition and fees for curriculum classes for the current semester. There is a $25 non-refundable Nelnet account enrollment fee per semester.
- Once you have enrolled in the payment plan, payments are automatically deducted from the debit or credit card provided. Please do not initiate payments on the scheduled payment dates.
- Your classes are secured and will not be dropped, provided you remain in the payment plan and make all scheduled payments.
- If you make a payment on the plan and then have a refund due, the refund will be handled like any other refund through BankMobile.
Read the required disclosures and contract with BankMobile, a division of Customer Bank.
