You can use a traditional checking or savings account to pay for tuition and fees.

  No transactional service fees

Both students and family members (who are authorized payers) can pay the bill online. Unfortunately, we cannot accept online payments from money market accounts, investment accounts, or home equity lines of credit. We do accept these methods by mail or in person.

We encourage payment from a checking or savings account in order to save money and avoid paying a nonrefundable 2.75 percent service fee (charged by NelNet Business Solutions) for credit and debit card transactions.
