Payment Plan

Binghamton University has partnered with Nelnet Business Solutions to offers an interest-free, web-based payment plan. The payment plan provides you with the opportunity to divide the bill for each term into automatic installments to allow you to spread your payments over a period of up to four months depending on when you sign up (Fall Term: Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec; Spring Term: Feb, Mar, Apr, May). A non-refundable enrollment fee of $40 per term is required to activate the payment plan. You MUST sign up on-line EVERY term, payment plans cannot be processed in the Student Accounts Office.

You will have the option of using a credit card (Discover, MasterCard, Visa or American Express) or a U.S. bank account (checking or savings) to participate. The down payment and the $40 enrollment fee will be debited from your account when you enroll. The remaining payments will be AUTOMATICALLY debited from the account you choose on the 5th of the applicable month/s. You will receive an email reminder several days before your account is debited.

Re-balancing a Payment Plan

The payment plan also allows you to re-balance your remaining installments as you add or remove charges from your student account.  Using the Balance Management tool ensures your bank account or credit card will be debited for an installment amount based on your actual current charges.  This can be especially valuable as you make adjustments during the semester, including meal plan, schedule, or newly awarded financial aid.  The Balance Management tool gives you the ability to account for new charges while planning for your monthly installment amount well in advance of your payment due date!
