Student Payment Plan - Credit

NELNET Business Solutions

e-Cashier logoTo help you meet your educational expenses, SUNY Adirondack is proud to offer NELNET as a convenient budget plan. This is not a loan program. There are no interest or finance charges assessed and there is no credit check. The cost to budget your interest-free monthly payment plan is a $25 per semester nonrefundable NELNET Enrollment Fee. It is easy to enroll in the NELNET e-Cashier payment plan on-line. Once you set up your plan, payments are made automatically.


If you registered for the Fall 2016 semester, your payment is due on August 10, 2016. To avoid loss of classes, you must either pay or enroll in the payment plan on or before August 10th. Students who enroll August 11th or thereafter should check their bill for the payment due date.


1. Payment in Full: You may pay in full on-line using e-Cashier. You must authorize the payment to be withdrawn from either a credit card or personal checking or savings account. There is a $1.00 charge for this service.

2. Payment Plan: You may set up a payment plan using e-Cashier. There is a non-refundable $25 per semester enrollment fee for this service. As with the payment in full option, there are two ways to set up your plan:

A. Automatic Bank Payment (ACH) - ACH payments are those payments you have authorized NELNET to process directly with your financial institution. This is simply a bank-to-bank transfer of funds that you have pre-approved for your expenses at SUNY Adirondack. Payments may be made from either your checking or savings account. Payments are processed on the 5th of each month and will continue until the balance is paid in full.

B. Credit Card Option - Paying with your credit card gives you the option of taking advantage of any bonus programs that may be 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. Visa, MasterCard, Discover and American Express are accepted. Payments will be charged on the 5th of each month until the balance is paid in full. Payments are processed by American Card Services, Inc.


The size of your down-payment is determined by the session you are attending and when you registered for that session. The down-payment is in addition to the $25 e-Cashier enrollment fee.

Enroll in the NELNET Payment Plan online at e-Cashier and follow the instructions


1. Where and what time will the funds be withdrawn from my account?

NELNET specifies the date each payment will occur, but it is your financial institution that determines the time of day the payment is debited. NELNET recommends you check with your financial institution to determine how far in advance funds should be deposited into your account to ensure the automatic payment clears. If a payment date falls on a weekend or banking holiday, the payment will be attempted the following business day.

2. How will I be notified of my payment information?

Once your agreement is posted to the NELNET system, you will receive a confirmation notification of your payment amount by e-mail or letter. Payments will be processed until the total balance is paid in full. The notification has important information you must have to log on to My NELNET Account. The notification also serves as a reminder that a $25 per semester non-refundable NELNET Enrollment Fee will be processed from the account indicated on the agreement.

3. Can I pay by phone with NELNET?

In accordance with the Terms & Conditions of your NELNET agreement, payments are processed electronically. NELNET does not accept payments by phone.

4. What is the NELNET Access Code?

To help protect your privacy, NELNET asks the person responsible for the payments to create an access code. If you should call into NELNET inquiring about your NELNET agreement or inquire online through My NELNET Account, you will be required to verify your NELNET Access Code. If you do not create an access code on your NELNET agreement, one will be randomly assigned to you. Your NELNET Access Code will be identified on your NELNET Confirmation Notification. Please remember to keep a copy of your confirmation notification.
