EZ Pay Installment Plan

EZ Pay, administered by Nelnet, is a tuition management tool that provides a low cost option for budgeting tuition and fees into manageable monthly payments. Early sign up allows more months to spread out payments. Enrollment is due by the semester's payment due date deadlines.
