How is the Payment Plan reflected on my Student Account?
Once you have enrolled in the Nelnet Payment Plan, you will see it listed under "Items that Require My Attention" in MySPC. The due date on your SPC Fee Schedule will not change and your payments to Nelnet will not be immediately reflected. As long as you are current on your Nelnet payments, your classes will not be dropped.

When will my Nelnet payments be reflected on my Student Account?
Your student account will reflect your Nelnet payments once Nelnet sends SPC your payment, which usually occurs about six weeks afer the start of classes.

What is an Authorized Payer?
If someone is paying on your behalf, you MUST first set them up as an Authorized Payer.

Balance Adjustments
Please do not assume your balance will automatically be adjusted
. You should review your agreement by logging into MySPC and clicking on the Nelnet link on your status page or by logging into Nelnet. Once in Nelnet, you can check your account, edit your personal information or change the source of where your payments are drawn.
