Can a payment plan be used for a previous semester as well as the current semester?

Modified on Thu, 21 Jul 2022 at 05:03 PM

Nelnet payment plans may not be used to cover a previous semester’s balance. Past due balances must be paid in full—or payment arrangements made with Student Financial Services—before a new payment plan will be authorized.

If you need payment assistance with balances from a prior semester, please call Student Financial Services at 617.349.8760 to discuss "back balance" options. For more information on back balance loans, visit
