Please note: 

  • Any new charges not covered by your original Nelnet contract (library fines, lab breakage, etc.) should be paid directly to JHU upon receiving an account statement. This would be separate from your monthly payment plan installments.  
  • Funding for your J-Card (debit card) cannot be budgeted through the Nelnet Payment Plan.  
  • Refunds for any over payments to the plan will be processed after the payment plan contract has been fulfilled.  
  • Students/parents can adjust your monthly payment plan if excess funds are on your student account to avoid waiting for a refund.
