The Nelnet payment plan provides the opportunity to stretch payments over a period of months using a debit card, credit card or an electronic transfer of funds from a checking or savings account.

Nelnet is not a loan program, and no interest charges will accrue.

There is no credit check, and no student is required to use this service.

East Georgia State College is aware of the financial burden of earning a college education. In an effort to offer an alternative payment option, EGSC has partnered with Nelnet Business Solutions to offer our students and families a Tuition Payment Plan. This plan will allow students and families to avoid the traditional lump-sum payments and spread this payment evenly for up to four months for the upcoming semester.

The Nelnet Payment Plan option permits students and families to budget costs for tuition, fees, as well as room and board that may not be covered by other financial aid. The program is not a loan so there are no interest or finance charges and there is no credit check. Monthly payments can be made from an automatic bank account draft or charged to a credit card.
