The Tuition Payment Plan is a third-party service provided by Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS). It allows students to spread tuition cost over a set number of monthly payments for Fall and Spring semesters only. The payment plan can only be used to budget curriculum tuition and fees (no book costs). A valid credit card or bank account is needed to set up a payment plan.

Cost to set up a payment plan:  These fees are assessed by Nelnet.

  • $30 per semester non-refundable enrollment fee for monthly payments
  • $2 per semester non-refundable enrollment fee for an immediate full payment
  • $30 return payment fee if a payment is returned


Enrollment in the payment plan is done entirely online. The required down payment and enrollment fee are processed immediately. Scheduled payments are deducted automatically on the day of your choosing the 5th, 15th or the 25th of each month until the balance is paid in full.

Log in to your Self-Service account and click on the Financial Information tab on the left side of the screen. Click the student finance drop down arrow, and select “Create a Payment Plan” option. This will take you to the Nelnet site. Please enter information and follow the steps on their site.
