Instead of paying your tuition bill in one lump sum, you can budget your tuition and fees for up to four months! This is not a loan program, so there is no debt incurred, no credit search,
and no interest or finance charge assessed on the unpaid balance. The sooner you register for classes and sign up for the Nelnet Payment Plan, the smaller your monthly payments will be!!


HOW THE NELNET formerly FACTS PAYMENT PLAN WORKS

Signing up with Nelnet is easy, affordable, and convenient!!
Students with a minimum balance of $150 can enroll in the plan.

There is a $25.00 per semester non-refundable enrollment fee. The enrollment fee is processed within a few days of Nelnet receiving your online application, which means it will be deducted from your account shortly after enrolling in a Nelnet payment plan.
