Payment Plan

The University at Buffalo is partnering with Nelnet Business Solutions to administer payment plans. There will be up to 4 installments, depending on when you enroll.

The payment plan is available for either the fall or spring terms (not summer or winter sessions). If you would like to enroll for both terms, you must enroll at the beginning of each term. The payment plan is not a loan program and the service is provided interest-free.

Students who enroll in the payment plan will be flagged in HUB as a plan participant. If you are a payment plan participant, you will NOT receive eBilling statement notification or an eBill from the university. Your payment due dates, as determined by QuikPay/Nelnet, will be the 5th of the month (or the next business day if the 5th falls on a weekend). If the 5th falls on a Federal holiday, payment processing will still occur. Please refer to your contract for your specific payment schedule.

Please Note: If you have received an eBill and enroll in a payment plan AFTER the due date of the eBill, you are subject to a late fee.

Your payment plan monthly installment will be automatically deducted from the account that you designated at the time of enrollment. You DO NOT need to log in to make a payment on your account.

Be sure to check your account frequently to see if your payment plan requires rebalancing. Rebalancing is needed if your original balance changes for any reason, such as additional financial aid or additional charges. You, as the plan owner, will be able to initiate the rebalancing by visiting the payment plan option in QuikPay/Nelnet.

To assist you with calculating your estimated payment plan amount, please refer to the following resources:

Please Note: If your account has insufficient funds at the time payment is due, your payment plan contract with QuikPay/Nelnet will be terminated. You will then be placed back into the normal billing process. You may be subject to a late payment fee.
