Nelnet Business SolutionsAn easier way to pay for college.


Paying for the rising costs of a college education is a concern for nearly every student and family. To help you meet your educational expenses, Armstrong State University is pleased to offer Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) as a convenient budget plan. This is not a loan program. You have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges, and there is no credit check. Enrollment in this plan is easy and available online.  All agreements are made between students or family members and Nelnet Business Solutions, not with the University. All payments will be made directly to Nelnet, and Nelnet will pay Armstrong the full agreement amount in two payments.
