Nelnet Payment Plan

Lake Land College offers the Nelnet payment plan that allows students to spread their tuition payments out over the semester as opposed to pay their bill in full. Normally, students are required to pay tuition in full by mid-term. If they do not, they are unable to register for classes the next semester or obtain transcripts and have to pay 1.5 percent interest on the balance due.

Automatic Payment Plan Information

Advantages include:

  • Easy online enrollment
  • Monthly payment plan
  • Flexible payment options
  • No interest


Payments are processed on the 20th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full. Payments can made through:

  • Automatic bank payment (ACH)
  • Credit/debit card (an additional fee may be assessed)

Cost to Participate

  • $25 per semester nonrefundable enrollment fee (paid via ACH & credit/debit card)
  • $30 fee if a payment is returned
