Bursar: 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, then Nelnet pays the full agreement amount in two payments towards your student account.

Nelnet Prepayment Plans are available for enrollment via the PORT. 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.

Fall 2017 payment plans are no longer available.

Spring 2018 payment plans will be available after fee assessment, after November 1st. Plan for Spring now!

Payment Methods

If you elect to use a credit or debit card, your monthly payment, along with a convenience fee, will be automatically charged to the credit card you designate. 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. If your payment is returned, scheduled second attempts will occur on the 20th of the month.
