MyPaymentPlan: How it Works

Using MyPaymentPlan system is simple. You may budget your tuition and fees one of two ways:

  1. Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) - CHECKING ACCOUNTS AND DEBIT CARDS
    ACH payments are those payments you have authorized Nelnet Business Solutions to process directly with your U.S. financial institution. It is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have preapproved for your expenses at Aims Community College. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 5th or 20th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full. You will need your checking/savings routing and account numbers.

    Please note: The ACH option is available to you if your banking institution is located in the U.S. If you are an international student and you are attempting to use banking information from a bank located outside the U.S., please use the Credit Card option for standard credit cards.
  2. Credit Card/Debit Option - See disclaimer*
    Many payers have requested the option of charging their monthly tuition payments to a credit/Debit card. This enables you to take advantage of various bonus programs offered by your credit card company. If you elect to use this option, your monthly payment will be automatically charged to the credit card you designate. Payments will be charged on the 5th or 20th of each month until the balance is paid in full. If you wish to use this option, you may enroll by registering online through MyPaymentPlan.

*Debit cards normally carry a daily or per transaction limit. If you choose to use your debit card for the credit card option, you may be at risk of having your payment declined and being charged an returned payment fee of $30 per occurrence by Nelnet. The cardholder can call the card company or bank, before signing up for MyPaymentPlan, and request the daily or per transaction limit to be increased to allow you to use the Credit Card option but this is at your own risk. PLEASE review your daily or per transaction limits on your debit card if you attempt to use the Credit Card option or you will be liable for the returned payment fee assessed by Nelnet Business Solutions.

*We highly recommend if you wish for the payment to be withdrawn from your checking or savings account to choose the ACH option and complete the required account information. You will be notified by Nelnet via mail or e-mail if your payment is returned for any reason.

IMPORTANT NOTICE FOR MyPaymentPlan: If you make any changes to your student tuition account (ie: add/drop courses, make payment directly to the college, financial aid applies, etc.) within 2 business days of the next payment to be drafted by Nelnet, that payment WILL NOT be affected and will draft the payment per the schedule. Aims updates the payment plan system every 24-48 hours.   The responsible party will need to be prepared to make that payment per the scheduled date if account changes are made or posted within five business days of the scheduled payment draft.
