Credit/Debit Card Payments

Credit and debit card payments are not accepted in person or over the phone, however, the University of Portland has partnered with Nelnet to enable online credit/debit card payments.  Payments can be processed for tuition, fees, room and board, and other items related to a student account balance.  Nelnet accepts Mastercard, Discover, Visa and American Express credit cards as well as electronic checks.  A convenience fee is charged by Nelnet for debit/credit card payments.  The amount of the convenience fee is displayed prior to your final submission of payment.

If you have already established an account in Nelnet as an authorized user, you can access Nelnet via the following link. Authorized User Link.
