Nelnet payment plans are a payment option resource for students to defer the cost of tuition and fees over two or more payments and to ensure they are not included in the drop for nonpayment. Payment plans are available for the semester through a third party, Nelnet, and are only available for a limited time, through the end of add/drop. These payment plans are set up to follow the rules and regulations for both the State of Georgia and the University System of Georgia. Students and parents should review all of the information about the plans carefully before signing up. Nelnet is a third party and payment plan agreements are executed between the student or parent and Nelnet and not Augusta University.
