Student Accounts & Financial Aid

For the most up to date balance, log in with your Hastings College credentials on the Finance tab in Self Service. Accounts with balances must be paid in full or set up on a payment plan in order to register for an upcoming semester.

Financial aid notifications for the 2021-2022 award year will be emailed to current students. Watch for your notification from!

When is my bill due?

If you are paying your balance in full, the payment is due August 15th for Fall Semester and January 15th for Spring Semester. To pay, log into the Self Service. We accept debit card, credit card or electronic check. You will be assessed a fee of 2.75% if you use a debit or credit card. There is no charge for using an electronic check.

If I am not paying my balance in full, what are my options?

In lieu of one full payment, a monthly payment plan is available from Nelnet, our online payment provider. This allows you to make five monthly installments each semester.

Payment plan installments can be made with any type of card or a bank account (checking or savings). You will be assessed a fee of 2.75% if you use any type of card. There is no charge for using a bank account. There is a $35 fee per semester for utilizing payment plans.

To sign up, go to Self Service.

Important Note: Payment plans are set up new each semester. Enrolling in a payment plan for the Fall semester does not automatically enroll you in a payment plan for the Spring semester. To enroll in a payment plan for the Spring semester you must go through the enrollment process again.

Direct Parent PLUS Loans are available!

The parent can borrow the cost of education minus other financial aid. Application directions can be found here. For more information, contact the Financial Aid office at 402.461.7391.

What if I work on campus?

Campus employment is paid directly to the student and is not used as a credit toward tuition charges.

If I requested additional loan funds, when will I receive my refund?

If your statement shows a refund due to you (ex. $10.00), the earliest date for refunds is approximately two weeks after the semester begins.

Why does my bill not match my award letter that I received from Financial Aid?

Financial aid is awarded for the academic year but tuition and fees are billed by semester. If you have any loans the origination fee has been deducted before it is disbursed to your billing statement.
