Monthly Electronic Transfer Payment Plan (MET)

Creighton Monthly Payment Plan (MET):

Creighton University is excited to announce that we are partnering with Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) to provide online financial services including electronic billing, online payments, and payment plan enrollment and management. 

  • Installment monthly payments will be automatically processed from the bank account or credit card of your choice; you do not have to remember to log in and make a payment, and a reminder email will be sent 5 days in advance of the payment to confirm the date and payment amount.  Please note: An additional convience fee of 2.75% will be assessed if you choose to use a credit/debit card as your method of payment.
  • Payment plans are term specific (fall or spring) and offer up to 6 monthly payments per semester. Payments are recorded the day they are processed to ensure the most current Student Account balance is available to you. 
  • The application for the fall semester will open May 1st with the first payment for the 6-month plan beginning in June.  The application for the spring semester open up in November 1st with the first payment for the 6-month plan beginning in December.
  • All financial aid, except work-study, must be included in your payment plan budget.   
  • You will be able to choose the 10th or the 20th as your withdrawal date for your monthly payment plan to better suit your financial needs.
  • To help you estimate and determine your semester costs, you can use our MET plan budget worksheet found here: Tuition and Fee costs for 2015-2016 and MET Payment Plan worksheet
  • We have reduced the non-refundable Application fee and it is now only $25 per semester.
  • If a payment is returned unpaid due to insufficient funds or stop payment, Nelnet will assess a $30 return item fee. 
  • Payment plans are not available for the summer terms for undergraduate and graduate students. If you are registered for multiple terms for summer, you can pay for each term separately. Tuition is due by the first day of each summer term. Summer Opus and Davis rent can be paid monthly and is due in mid-May for the first month rent and then the 1st day of each month for June and July. You cannot include summer tuition, fees, or summer Opus or Davis rent in a fall or spring payment plan.
  • You may access the details of your payment plan agreement online 24/7.
  • Creighton University will continue to provide you support and assistance with your account during normal University business hours.  NBS will also provide 24/7 telephone support for assistance with your account.
  • Important:  Students have to grant parents, legal guardians, or other third parties access by making them an Authorized Party to their Nelnet financial student account in order for them to view their tuition bills, make payment in their behalf, or set up a payment plan . Instructions to set up an Authorized Party can be found here.
