The Nelnet Tuition Payment Plan offers interest-free plans that allow students to spread out tuition payments up to a six-month period. Effective summer 2020, the enrollment fee is $25 per term. Winter session payment plans are not available. Students may enroll in the payment plan by using credit cards, automated bank payments, or eChecks.
Students who are interested in using the payment plan must enroll online by logging into their CUNYfirst Self-Service accounts and following the navigation: Student Center>> Finances>> and select Enroll/Manage Payment Plan. For further information and assistance, call 1-888-470-6014.
- When completing the Payment Plan Budget Worksheet, please include any prior balances so they can be incorporated into your initial payment plan total.
- If you do not include your prior balance in the initial payment plan total, your payment plan balance will be recalculated (on the eighth day of the semester) to include any prior balances. Prior balances will be divided among your remaining installments.
- If your financial aid award has been removed for a prior semester, please note that this balance will be included in your payment plan.
- Any payment plan payments will be applied to the earliest balance first. For example, if you are enrolled in a spring 2021 payment plan and also have an outstanding fall 2020 balance, any payment plan payments will first be applied to your fall 2020 balance until it is fully covered; subsequent payments will then be applied to your spring 2021 balance.
