Start Nelnet Payment Plan

From Nelnet Business Solutions

The college offers the Nelnet Payment plan that provides a low-cost option for budgeting tuition and fees. You authorize payments to be made from a checking or savings account or by Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or American Express. The earlier you register the better chance you have to enroll in the courses you want and the more months you can schedule to make payments. The plan allows you to schedule your payments over two months for summer term and over five months for fall or spring semester depending on when you register. The only cost to budget monthly payments through Nelnet is a $25 per semester nonrefundable enrollment fee or a $2 nonrefundable enrollment fee for the Nelnet one-time pay/full payment option.

If payments have not been scheduled as established in the Nelnet Payment Plan then you may be administratively withdrawn for nonpayment. If the first installment has been paid and/or financial aid has been awarded, you will be responsible for all remaining charges on your account unless you officially withdraw from the course(s) by the last day to officially withdraw for a 100% refund of tuition and fees as indicated in the Fee Refunds Table elsewhere on this page. The Nelnet Payment Plan does not apply to students enrolled in Community Education courses or unless otherwise indicated for a specific program. 

4 By Phone - You can contact the Business Office at (618) 437-5321 extension 1235 during normal office hours to make a full payment using a credit card over the phone.
