Effective June 1, 2022 Nelnet will be increasing the service fee to 2.80%. If anticipated Financial Aid is shown for the particular semester and sufficient to cover your tuition and fee balance in full, no action is required. Classes will be held as long as the account balance does not exceed the anticipated aid for that particular semester. Account balances that occur from a shortage of semester-anticipated financial aid must be paid in full by Reynolds payment deadlines.
You may pay online 24/7 for the current term with a Visa, MasterCard or Discover credit card, eCheck from a checking or savings account. Online payment is processed using Nelnet ePay.

Payments are made automatically from the bank account (checking or savings) or credit card you specify. There is an additional fee assessed for using a credit card. Students should understand their responsibilities for participation in the payment plan. Visit www.mycollegepaymentplan.com/reynolds to learn more about how to access the payment plan option.
Third Party Payments (Employers, Child Care Scholarships, and Savings Plans)
The Business Office Third Party Billing will bill a third-party sponsor for a student’s tuition and fees. A valid authorization from the organization must be submitted at the time of enrollment or by the posted payment due date.
A DND (Do Not Drop) indicator is placed on the student’s account to prevent their classes from being dropped for non-payment. Students will continue to see a balance on their student account until the billing process is complete. We recommend students enroll in all courses at once, regardless of the session.
Students are responsible for any balances or fees not covered by the sponsoring organization. Payments not made by the payment deadline could result in students losing some or all of their desired courses. Questions can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org or 855-874-6682.
