MET Payment Plan

Monthly Electronic Transfer Payment Plan

Creighton University has partnered with Nelnet Campus Commerce to provide online financial services including electronic billing, online payments, and payment plan enrollment and management.

  • Payments are withdrawn as scheduled monthly installments on either the 1st or the 10th of each month.  A reminder email will be sent 5 days in advance of your payment to confirm the date and payment amount.
  • Only United States bank accounts may be used.  Foreign accounts may not be used.
  • Payment plans are term specific and offered only in the Fall and Spring semesters for undergraduates and graduates. Professional and Accelerated Nursing students, please review the Professional Plans (listed below).
  • Balances from prior semesters may not be carried forward.  You must have a balance of $100 or greater.
    • Payment plans are not available for 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 class for each term.
    • Summer rent for Opus Hall and Davis Square residents must be paid by June 1 or may be paid monthly. For monthly payments, rent is due mid-May, June 1, and July 1.
  • Payment plans will not automatically update.  If you have any additional charges or credits added to your account you will be responsible for manually adjusting your plan to capture these changes.  If you need assistance making a change please contact the Business Office.  Any adjustments must be made at least 5 business days prior to the next date of withdrawal from your account.

Professional Program and Accelerated Nursing Students

Students in Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Pharmacy, AJD Law, and Accelerated Nursing programs who will be attending 3 full semesters (Summer, Fall, & Spring) for the current academic year can review payment plan options at the Payment Plan for Professionals site.

Multiple Failed Payment Policy

The Payment Plan is offered to students and their authorized users/parties as a monthly installment, automatic withdrawal system used to pay any outstanding debts on a student's tuition account. The plan is configured on a per-semester basis and is set up to pay the current semester in full, with a maximum of 5 monthly payments available. Payment Plan users will be automatically disenrolled from the program if they have more than two returned payments in any one semester. A Business Office Tuition Account Hold will be placed on the student account until the balance due has been paid in full. The payment will have an Insufficient Funds processing hold until the method of payment has had sufficient time to clear the account. The student will not be allowed to register for future courses, obtain a diploma, or receive transcripts until the hold has been released. Users will be required to wait 24 hours after a hold has been placed to sign up for a new Payment Plan (for a future semester). The payment plan owner will receive an email notification that the Payment Plan is cancelled/terminated.  Late fees will not be waived.  After the Payment Plan has been terminated for the current semester it cannot be reinstated.  However, students will be allowed to use the Payment Plan again during a future semester should they choose to do so.

Important Dates for 2019-2020 Academic Year

You must be enrolled in a MET Payment Plan by the Last Payment Date for each semester to avoid late fees.  Late fees added to the tuition account will not be waived for failure to sign up on time.

Enrollment before the first billing cycle will require you to estimate your costs until the bill has been issued.  If you require assistance with an estimation, please contact the Business Office.
