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.

Students will need to log onto their self-serve banner to access the Nelnet Enterprise System:

  • Self-Serve Banner

Once you are in the Nelnet Enterprise System

Students have the option to allow an Authorized Party to assist them in making one-time payments.  Students will need to set-up the Authorized Party in the Nelnet Enterprise system.  Once the student is in the Nelnet Enterprise system go to:
