Paymybill - How do I estimate my UI-Pay Payment plan budget?
You can estimate your payment plan budget by using the Budget Calculator or do it manually on the Budget Worksheet.
Your UI-Pay Payment Plan budget is the total estimated expenses (charges assessed to your University student account) less the total anticipated credits (financial aid awards, student loans, scholarships, 529 Plan, etc.).
The Budget Calculator will assist you in estimating your expenses. Estimated amounts will automatically populate on the budget worksheet in UI-Pay when you select the options that match your circumstances.
If you prefer to estimate your expenses yourself, we have provided below some guidance to assist you. You will need to manually enter the estimated amounts on the budget worksheet in UI-Pay. Only enter the amount for one semester in each field.
Please be sure to have your financial aid award letter available so you can enter the appropriate amount(s) for your anticipated credits.
Tuition and Mandatory Fees:
Meal Plan and Room (please note the amount given on these websites are typically for fall and spring - be sure to only enter the amount for one semester):
Please note: Certified housing is not assessed to student’s accounts and is therefore not eligible to be included in the Payment Plan.
We recommend that in estimating expenses you estimate high and in estimating credits, estimate low. We also encourage you to contact Nelnet Business Solutions Customer Service at 1-866-506-4637 if you need assistance creating your estimated budget.
