The University of West Georgia is partnered with Nelnet Business Solutions (NBS) to allow students to pay tuition and fees in installments, helping make college more affordable.  The Nelnet payment plan is a flexible payment option that allows payments with either credit/debit card, or automatic withdrawal from a checking or savings account.  The payment plan is not a loan, and has no credit checks, interest, or finance charges associated with this option.  This plan can cover any tuition, student fees, meal plan, and on-campus housing charges up to $5,500.00.

  • When financial aid is applied to my student account does my Nelnet payment plan automatically decrease?

    Once aid (scholarship, loan, or grant) is applied to your student account, your payment plan will be automatically reduced to cover the remaining balance due.

    If the authorized aid covers your total charges then your payment plan will be reduced to deduct no additional installments.

    Nelnet will send an email to the email address that you provide during enrollment to notify you of changes to your plan. 

    Overpayment's will be processed as refunds, to your BankMobile refund preference, after UWG receives both your authorized aid and the payments made to Nelnet payment plan.   

  • Why does my Nelnet payment plan not show up on my student breakdown bill as a payment?

    Payments made to Nelnet are applied to your student account after UWG receives the funds from Nelnet.

    UWG receives Nelnet payments in installments, payments will not post immediately after payment is taken. 

    When a payment plan is set up through Nelnet, a protection is placed on your student account to denote your payment plan.

    The protection is for the total amount of the Nelnet payment plan and protects you ONLY for your agreement amount through the fee payment deadline drops.

    It is critical that as drop deadlines approach, you check your student account balance and compare it to the amount of your payment plan to ensure your total charges are covered. You can do this by logging into your Nelnet account.
