Payment Options

There are many payment options: online, by mail, or by phone. Your account must be paid in full or have an acceptable payment plan in place by the due date for that semester. If the payment due date for the semester has passed, payment is due upon registration.

Payment Due Dates

  • Fall – July 15
  • Spring – December 15
  • Summer – April 15

Please see the options below to cover your student account balance. Student accounts must be paid in full or have an acceptable payment plan in place by the due date for that semester.  If the payment due date for the semester has passed, payment is due upon registration. Students with unpaid accounts may be dropped from class(es). If payment or payment plan is not in place by the due date, the account will be assessed a late fee ($250 for day students; $100 for all other populations).

Term 2 Only | Payment Due Dates

  • Fall Term 2 – September 15
  • Spring Term 2 – February 15
  • Summer Term 2 – June 1

Term 2 due dates are for students who have only enrolled in Term 2 classes. Students also in 14-week or Term 1 classes must follow the primary semester due dates. Student account balances that are not covered by the due date will be subject to the same penalties as the primary due dates.

Using Financial Aid or a Third-Party

To use financial aid or a third-party payer as an acceptable payment plan, the student must have completed all requirements and submitted required paperwork and electronic signatures by the payment due date.

Pay Online

Students should view their ledger to see their balance. To make a one-time, click on the NelNet Payment Portal button on your ledger screen. You will automatically be signed in to your NelNet Payment Portal where you can make payments, sign up for payment plans, and add authorized users to your account.

Due to the high volume of calls, we encourage you to pay online.

Pay with an International Bank

International students paying from an international bank outside the USA please make your payment through Flywire.

Pay With a Payment Plan

To sign up for a payment plan, log into your MyRiv account, and navigate to your ledger screen. There, you can click on the NelNet Payment Portal button to be taken to your payment portal website. If payment plans are still an option for the semester in which you are trying to pay down your balance, you can set up a payment plan online through this portal.

If someone other than you makes payments towards a payment plan, you can add them as an authorized user allowing them to create their own account and make payments.
