Frequently Asked Questions

When will funds be withdrawn from my bank account?

After your initial payment at the time of enrollment, you will be charged according to the Payment Plan Schedule above. Check with your bank to find out what time of day payments will actually be debited, and how far in advance you should deposit funds to make sure payments clear. Payments that fall on a weekend or holiday will be transacted the following business day.

Will I receive notification that my payment has been received?

Yes. You will receive an email confirmation of your payment. Payments will be processed as described above until the balance is paid in full. The email will also be a reminder that a $25-per-semester nonrefundable Nelnet Account Enrollment Fee will be charged to your account. You will also receive email reminders of payment due dates.

If I withdraw from (or do not attend) my classes, do I still have to make payments?

Yes. If you withdraw from or do not attend your classes and there is a balance due, payments will continue to be charged to your account per the agreement.

Is there a charge for a returned payment (for insufficient funds)?

Yes. There is a $30 service fee for a returned payment.

NOTE: If you enrolled in the payment plan in a past semester and had a $30 balance due for a returned payment, you must pay that balance along with the $25-per-semester enrollment fee (a total of $55) to set up a new plan. 

Can I pay by phone?

No. Payments are processed electronically.

Why does WebAdvisor show a balance due when Nelnet does not?

This is most likely due to financial aid that has been offered to you but not accepted.
If you have a loan award listed as “Offered,” it is considered pending and applied to your tuition balance (in Nelnet, but not in WebAdvisor), which may result in a $0 balance due (or a credit balance) appearing on the Nelnet payment plan screen. If that occurs and you do not want the offered loan, you must reject it via My Financial Aid in WebAdvisor. You should then be able to complete enrollment in the Tuition Payment Plan.
