Payment Plan

Nelnet allows you to make automatic monthly payments toward the cost of a course instead of paying it as a lump sum. Courses with a tuition cost of $249.99 or higher are eligible for Nelnet.

The Nelnet Payment Plan is not a loan program. You have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The cost to budget monthly payments through the Nelnet Payment Plan is only $25 per term. This is a nonrefundable fee.

You may budget your tuition costs and Nelnet fee in the following ways:

  • Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) - ACH payments are debited directly from your financial institution
  • Credit Card Option - Your monthly payment will be automatically charged to a credit card

Upon the completion of your registration, 25% down payment, and the Nelnet payment plan online, you will receive an immediate confirmation number which means you are registered for the course and are set up for the Nelnet Payment Plan. The number of payments, minimum of 2, will be based on the day you register and the start date of the course. Full payment must be completed prior to the course starting so the earlier you register for the course the longer you will have to pay. Payments made will appear within approximately 10 business days.

To enroll in the Nelnet Payment Plan, check the "Make payment arrangements" check the box on the payment web screen when you register for a qualifying course. If this option is not present at the time of online registration, please contact Registration at 803-732-0432 for further instructions.

Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full.

Please note that if your payment is returned on your Nelnet Payment Plan you will be charged a return fee of $30 for each unsuccessful attempt.


What's the difference between Training and Academic Programs?

Only academic programs provide college credit, transfer to four-year colleges and universities, and are eligible for federal financial aid (FAFSA). Training programs can be completed in a matter of weeks or months. These are not eligible for federal financial aid, but they may qualify for other scholarships and grant funds.
