Payment Plans

The University of Kansas' payment plan is administered by Nelnet. The payment plan allows students to pay their tuition, required campus fees, University Housing charges, meal plan, and optional campus fees over various months depending on the semester. There is a $45 enrollment fee for each academic term you use the Nelnet payment plan. Students can enroll in the payment plan by logging in to Enroll & Pay.  If you need further assistance in establishing a payment plan, please contact Nelnet Customer Service at 888-470-6014.

To avoid late payment fees, enroll in the payment plan and pay the $45 enrollment fee plus the first monthly payment for the selected plan by the payment due date.

After you enroll in a Nelnet payment plan, all monthly payments will be automatically deducted. Nelnet will send a monthly statement to the student until your payment plan is paid in full or cancelled. Not receiving a Nelnet statement does not negate your responsibility to pay the amount owed by the appropriate due date.

Student Accounts and Receivables will continue to provide monthly ebill-notifications as long as charges exist on the your KU account. Please use KU's monthly ebill to verify you are paying the appropriate amounts to Nelnet. If variances exist between what you owe KU and your payment plan established with Nelnet, you are responsible for adjusting your Nelnet payment plan account. Underpayments can cause you to receive late fees from KU after the payment plan ends. KU assesses late fees after the 15th of each month when the payment plan is not in effect. In addition, you will not be able to enroll in future semesters or receive a transcript until your KU account is paid in full.
