Payment Plan Information

Payment Methods

  • Automatic bank payment (ACH)
  • Credit card/debit card (an additional processing fee will apply)

NOTE: Frequent delinquent or non-sufficient funds activity will result in the restriction of payment plan options for your Nelnet user account.  Upon notification of a third returned payment, BC has the right to restrict the payment terms via Nelnet to include Credit card only transactions, holds until first payments are confirmed or the termination of your Nelnet account.  All three options could affect a student’s ability to confirm registration, make schedule changes and request academic transcripts.
