Bursar’s Office: Nelnet Automated Payment Plans

Nelnet Business Solutions (Nelnet) the convenient budget plan, is not a loan program. You have no debt, there are no interest and/or finance charges, and there is no credit check. Enrollment in this plan is easy and available through your PORT.  All agreements are made between you and Nelnet , not with us. All payments will be made directly to Nelnet. Nelnet will pay us the full agreement amount in two payments.

Nelnet Prepayment Plans are available for enrollment via the PORT only. The enrollment process will be securely connected to your student account, so your plan will be for the exact amount due--no guessing or estimating! Start the enrollment process by logging in and clicking on the Payment Plan link in the Student Services box on the Home tab.

The convenience fee is in addition to the enrollment fee. Payment methods can only be changed under certain circumstances, so choose your method wisely.

Scheduled payments are processed on the 5th of the month and will continue until the balance is paid in full. Down payments and the enrollment fee are deducted immediately.
