COVID-19: Essential Information

Undergraduate Payment Options

Spring 2021 semester bill notification emails were emailed the week of November 16 to students and their Nelnet authorized parties. Payment or enrollment in a Nelnet payment plan is due on December 15. 

When students register for any class at Middlebury or receive any service from Middlebury, they accept full responsibility to pay all tuition, fees and other associated costs assessed as a result of registration and/or receipt of services. The student further agrees that their registration and acceptance of associated terms constitutes a promissory note agreement in which Middlebury is providing educational services, deferring some or all of the payment obligation for those services, and they promise to pay for all assessed tuition, fees and other associated costs by the published or assigned due date.

Online Student Accounts at Nelnet Campus Commerce

Middlebury partners with Nelnet Campus Commerce to provide students and their designated authorized payers with online billing and payments. Nelnet sends emails to students when the bill is ready to view at the student's online account. 

First-year students need to follow the link in the bill notification email to set up their user account. We strongly encourage setting up parents or guardians as authorized payers during the initial log on, so parents/guardians have access to the student's account for making payments and enrolling in payment plans.

Electronic Bank Transfer Payment

Once logged in to their Nelnet accounts, students or authorized payers can complete an electronic bank transfer to make payment. There is no service processing fee for this payment.

Credit Card Payment

Credit card payments are processed by Nelnet. Nelnet will add a 2.75% service processing fee to all credit card payment transactions. The service fee is non-refundable.    

Payment Plan Options

Nelnet provides monthly payment plan options each semester. There is a $20 per semester enrollment fee. To enroll, log in to your online account at  From the welcome page, select 'Set up Payment Plan' next to the appropriate semester. For assistance, please contact Nelnet at 800-609-8056.
