Nelnet Payment Plan (Pre-Payment Plan) – Effective Summer 2016 Semester

Beginning in the Summer 2016 semester, a student can enroll in a Nelnet Payment Plan to provide students and their families the option of paying their tuition and fee charges monthly instead of prior to the start of the semester.  This deferred payment plan is interest free and allows students the option to set up payments with a credit card, debit card, or electronic check.  The enrollment fee for the payment plan is $95.00 per semester and there are no additional fees or charges.  If you decide to sign up for the electronic check option, a discounted rate will lower your enrollment fee to $40.00 per semester.  To view an Instructional Video to assist you with enrolling for a Nelnet Payment Plan, the link is:
