Tuition Monthly Payment Option

Make college more affordable by paying for tuition and fees over time. Tuition payment plans break down your tuition balance into affordable monthly payments. There’s no interest, payment options are flexible, setup fees are affordable, and it’s easy to enroll!

Louisiana Tech University’s Comptroller’s Office recognizes Nelnet Campus Commerce (Nelnet) as the provider of an Interest-Free Monthly Payment Option for those who want to level their tuition payments across the academic year (Fall, Winter, and Spring Quarters.) The payment plan is an alternative to large annual or term payments and helps limit – and even eliminate – borrowing.  Services included in the payment plan are:

  • Convenient, interest-free monthly payments
  • 24-hour account access through Nelnet’s website
  • Toll-free automated account information
  • Toll-free personal service Monday-Saturday at 1.800.609.8056
  • Students can begin enrolling in the payment plan at any time, with the first payment due as early as June 5 or as late as September 15.
  • Enrollment after July 13 will require a down payment of at least ten percent.
  • The deadline for enrollment in the payment plan is September 5.
