Settling Your Student Account
There is more than one way to approach settling your student account at Lewis & Clark. You may choose to make full payment of your costs, utilize financial aid including private loans, set up a monthly payment plan account through Nelnet, or any combination of these methods. Click below for more details on each approach.
Lewis & Clark has partnered with Nelnet to administer our monthly payment plan option. This plan allows the cost for fall and/or spring term to be divided in 5 interest-free installments. Fall term plans begin July 5 and end November 5. Spring term plans begin December 5 and end April 5. There is no monthly payment plan available for summer expenses. The semester enrollment fee is $40.
If you enroll in a Nelnet payment plan which is then terminated for nonpayment, the entire outstanding balance for the semester becomes due to Lewis & Clark immediately and may be subject to outstanding account balance consequences.
To determine your budget, first total your anticipated charges, then deduct your fully processed financial aid. If you intend to use Nelnet to settle your Lewis & Clark student account, it is imperative that your Nelnet budget amount cover your costs at the school.
To establish a monthly payment plan with Nelnet, please log into WebAdvisor: Student Finance Self Service, click Student Finance, select Student Account Center and Proceed to Processor. For enrollment assistance, please contact Nelnet at 1-800-609-8056. For assistance determining the budget, please contact your Student Account Specialist.
If your sponsor will not be covering the full balance due on your Lewis & Clark student account, you are responsible for paying the remainder by the semester due date. If for any reason the school does not receive payment from your sponsor, you will be responsible for the resulting balance. It is incumbent on you to notify Student and Departmental Account Services if there are any changes to the terms of your sponsor billing arrangement.
