Payment Plan


Lewis University understands that sometimes students need help managing their tuition bill. Nelnet Campus Commerce provides students and families with payment plan services which are available for Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters.

Students can choose one of the following payment plan options for each semester (fall, spring, and summer) through Nelnet Campus Commerce. This option allows students to manage their charges with an interest-free monthly payment. Students work directly through the Nelnet Student Account Platform to sign up and establish monthly payments based on their bill and estimated financial aid.

A non-refundable fee is due at the time of application; this is the enrollment fee charged for extending the payment due date past the first day of class. Each term (Fall, Spring, and Summer) requires its own application. Plans are created directly online using the Nelnet Student Account Platform

Tuition payment plans administered through Nelnet Campus Commerce offer students the opportunity to pay tuition, interest free, in monthly installments, beginning as early as 5/1 (fall semester) or 11/1 (spring semester), respectively. Students are able to sign up for a payment plan and make subsequent payments completely online. This convenient online option also allows for parents, guardians, or others to be identified as the primary payer. This person has access to view the payment plan arrangement and make subsequent payments. Other benefits include the option for automatic payments, a toll-free number for the student payment plan center, and budgeting for other college expenses.

Each semester that a payment plan is needed, students must enroll online; enrollment is not automatic and must be payer initiated. A $60 fee is charged for use of a payment plan. Enrolling in a tuition payment plan is easy, simply visit here.
