KENNESAW, Ga. (June 17, 2013) — Kennesaw State University has teamed with Nelnet Business Solutions to offer an online payment program to help students pay tuition, mandatory fees, university meal plans and housing in monthly installments, rather than an up-front payment at the start of the semester. The interest-free payment plan will launch July 1 and covers up to $5,500 per semester for tuition and fees.

“We strive to provide effective options and services for our students at Kennesaw State,” said Rita Adams, the university’s bursar. “The Nelnet Tuition Payment Plan is a resource we hope will make it easier for students to budget registration-related costs each semester.”

The payment plan details are based on how early a student enrolls in the program, which can equate to a lower down payment and more time to pay, extending monthly payments from two to four months.  The cost to enroll in the payment plan is $50 per semester.

Students receiving financial aid can participate in the payment program as well. Nelnet Business Solutions will calculate tuition and fees due after financial aid has been applied.  The minimum amount to participate in the payment plan is $500.

Kennesaw State is one of four institutions in the University System of Georgia to offer a payment plan by a third-party provider. This is the first time Kennesaw State has offered a payment plan to its nearly 25,000 students.
