Paying tuition and fees over time can make costs more manageable. Students and their authorized payers are eligible to enroll in a payment plan. You'll need to sign up for a new plan every semester to continue paying monthly

What payment methods do you accept?
Payments are made through automatic deduction from either a checking or savings account or a debit or credit card. The most cost effective option is to set up payments from a traditional U.S. checking or savings account (eCheck). A nonrefundable 2.85% service fee applies to all credit and debit transactions (charged by NelNet Campus Commerce).
Why are payment plans blocked or unavailable to me? Why am I not eligible for a payment plan?
Either you owe less than $250 on your tuition bill or the payment plan enrollment period has closed.
What does rebalance mean? Why do I have to rebalance my plan?
If the balance due on your bill changes for any reason (i.e., adding or dropping a class) your monthly payments will need to be redistributed, or "rebalanced," evenly across the remaining months of your payment plan.
Why am I still getting bill notifications by email even though I'm on a payment plan?
You will continue to receive ebill notifications until the bill is paid in full.
