An Important Update about Payment Plans

Student Financial Services is working closely with College administrators during this time. If you utilize the monthly payment plan with Nelnet, our payment partner, you may have a payment scheduled for April 20, 2020 which is now higher than your balance due

April payments will be automatically withdrawn if the plan owner does not log into Nelnet and adjust the scheduled payment. If there is no remaining balance due in Workday, the April payment may be adjust down to $0. Please confirm your student account balance in workday and contact SFS with any questions. 

To adjust your payment, log into Workday, link to Nelnet and under the "actions" drop down choose "adjustment payments". Enter the amount you with to have withdrawn in April.
