Tuition Payment Plan

The Nelnet monthly payment plan allows you to pay in smaller installments. There is a $35-$45 non-refundable enrollment fee per semester, depending on number of payments.

You can set up payments from your checking and savings accounts or Visa/MasterCard/American Express/Discover credit card. There is a 2.5% service fee for each credit card transaction.

You must register for classes before you can enroll in the plan.
