Payment Plans

We are pleased to offer a payment plan from Nelnet/FACTS Management Company, Inc. Nelnet/FACTS is a tuition management plan that provides students with a low cost option for budgeting tuition and fees. It is not a loan program - therefore, you have no debt, there are no interest or finance charges assessed, and there is no credit check. The only cost to budget monthly payments through Nelnet/FACTS is a $25.00 per semester nonrefundable enrollment fee.

Through Nelnet/FACTS, you will be able to:

  • Arrange for monthly payments on the 5th or 20th day of the month
  • Pay in full
  • Include the cost of required course texts and materials on your payment plan 

You can choose to make your monthly payments directly from your bank account or by credit card (MasterCard, American Express, Discover are accepted). VISA is not accepted, but you can supply bank account information for automatic withdrawl. For more information, call the Financial Management at 651-793-1881.

You can sign up for a payment plan through Student e-Services or directly through the Nelnet/FACTS site

Changes to your Payment Plans

When you add or drop classes, it is your responsibility to alert Financial Management in writing or via e-mail to these changes at least 10 days BEFORE your next payment.

Your scheduled Nelnet/FACTS payment plan will not automatically be adjusted if financial aid pays your tuition and fees or if you make any unscheduled payment directly to Metropolitan State University. It is your responsibility to inform in writing to adjust our Nelnet/FACTS payment plan by emailing Financial Management.

Payment Plans and Registration Holds

Students with Nelnet/FACTS tuition payment plans who have been making scheduled payments for the current semester without any non-sufficient fund (NSF) transactions will be allowed to register for their next semester's courses before the final payment is received by the university. If the final payment is not made, their registration for the next semester will be cancelled.

Payment Deadline and Drop For Non-payment

 Students who enroll in the Nelnet/FACTS payment plan by the tuition payment deadline will not be dropped from their classes.
