Nelnet Payment Plan (Deferred Payment Plan)

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.

New Enrollment Fee Policy:

Starting with Enrollment in the Spring 2020 Nelnet payment plan you can now enroll in a payment plan that will allow you to choose to make payment with an electronic check or credit card. The Enrollment fee is $40.00

Using a Credit Card with your Nelnet Plan:

If you choose to make your payment with a credit card, you will be charged a 2.65% non-refundable convenience fee.
