Student Tuition Payment Plan (STPP)

The Student Tuition Payment Plan (STPP)

STPP offers students the convenience of paying tuition online; and in installments.  These installments can be spread over several months, depending on the length of the semester. Here’s what you need to know:

  • Payments can be made from a bank account or by debit/credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover are accepted).  
  • Sign up for a monthly payment plan to secure your classes on the day you register, or any time before your tuition due date. All payment plans require a $15 down payment and a $25 non-refundable payment plan fee (per semester and per college), for a total of $40 to secure your class(es).  
  • Summer 2024 tuition is due on May 20, 2024
  • Fall 2024 tuition is due on August 7, 2024


Payment Options

  1. Automatic Bank Payment (ACH). ACH payments are payments you have authorized Nelnet Campus Commerce to process directly with your financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre-approved for your expenses at ýƵ. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full.
  2. Debit or credit card. If you elect to use this option, your monthly payment will be charged to the debit or credit card you have designated. Payments will be charged on the 5th of each month until the balance is paid in full. Credit card payments are processed by American Card Services, Inc.

STPP Advantages
