Nelnet Tuition Payment Plan

The Nelnet Tuition Payment Plan allows students the option of dividing current and prior semester charges into as many as 5 monthly payments for the fall and spring semesters, and up to 3 payments for the summer semester.  The Nelnet Tuition Payment Plan requires a $45 non-refundable, non-deferrable fee that is due at the time of enrollment into the plan.  The monthly payment dates occur on the 5th or the 20th day of each month and will be automatically deducted from the student's choice of a credit card, debit card or checking account.

Students may enroll in the Nelnet Tuition Payment Plan prior to each semester's start by going to, logging in to myLSUS and selecting pay now and the tuition payment plan option.

At the completion of each semester, the university will assign all unpaid tuition payment plan accounts to a collection agency.  Students are liable for all associated attorney, collections and insufficient funds costs.

In addition to the university's collection efforts regarding unpaid tuition payment plan accounts, students with financial obligations (tuition payment plans, NSF checks, library fines, parking fines, etc.) owed to the university will not be able to obtain grades, transcripts, etc., during the current or any future semesters until the obligation has been paid in full.  A student will be permitted to register for a future semester however, payment/payment arrangement of all prior debts is expected in full at registration.
