Payment Plan

To help students budget for educational expenses, we have partnered with Nelnet Campus Commerce to offer a convenient monthly tuition payment plan. The monthly payment plan is not a loan program or financial aid. There are no interest charges assessed, and there is no credit check.

Nelnet charges a $50 nonrefundable enrollment fee per semester for access to their service. Students may pay tuition, fees, and room and board expenses using either a credit card or Automatic Bank Payments (ACH). Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full.


How to Enroll

Enrollment in the monthly payment plan is done entirely online. To enroll, students must have a student ID number, and a credit card or banking information.

To enroll in the monthly payment plan, log in to Montibus and click on "Payment Plan Information" under the "Student Finance" menu.


Terms and Conditions

The monthly tuition payment plan is a third-party service offered by Nelnet Campus Commerce as a service of Lees-McRae College.

Please read the terms and conditions carefully before proceeding. The $50 enrollment fee and any required down payment are processed immediately.

By enrolling in the payment plan, the student agrees to these terms and conditions:

  • Payment plan agreements are valid only for one semester. Students must enroll in the payment plan each semester.
  • Enrollment in the payment plan is open only until the stated payment deadline for each semester.
  • Students must be enrolled in the payment plan by the payment deadline. Students not enrolled in the payment plan by that date may be deregistered from classes. Please be aware of payment deadlines.
  • Enrollment deadlines and any down payment requirements for the semester are posted in the tuition payment plan brochure, available in Business Affairs or online.
  • A $50 per semester, non-refundable enrollment fee and any applicable down payment will be deducted immediately from the bank account/credit card on file. Please plan accordingly.
  • Returned payments are subject to a $30 returned payment fee assessed by Nelnet.
  • Returned payments will automatically be reprocessed on the next 5th or 20th of the month, regardless of when the next scheduled payment is.
  • Down payments or enrollment fees returned for any reason will result in termination of the payment plan agreement by Nelnet, and the student will not be able to use this service. Please plan accordingly.
  • Pending financial aid will not reduce the balance due or payment amount until it is accepted and credited to the student account balance.
  • If the balance due on your student account changes due to additional charges or credits, your future payment amounts will be automatically adjusted accordingly.
  • Any payment plan agreement with three (3) payments delinquent may be terminated by Lees-McRae College.
  • All Lees-McRae College collection policies apply to past-due payment plan accounts.
