Monthly Payment Plan

2020-2021 University of Notre Dame Monthly Payment Plan 

The Office of Student Accounts has partnered with Nelnet, the company that provides and supports IRISHPAY, to offer a monthly payment plan for the 2020/2021 academic year. This is an interest-free plan which allows families to spread out their educational expenses over monthly installments. Payments will be made automatically from a standard U.S. checking or savings account and are processed on the first of each month. 

Fees

  • Annual Payment Plan: $45.00 nonrefundable enrollment fee 
  • Semester Only Plan: $25.00 nonrefundable enrollment fee 
  • Return Payment Fee: $30.00
     

How to Enroll 

Enrollment in the 2020/21 plan for continuing families will be available in IRISHPAY beginning April 15, 2020. 

  • NOTE:  Families of continuing students who wish to sign up for the Monthly Payment Plan and have not yet received a Financial Aid Notification for the 2020/21 academic year may enroll at this time and enter the 2019/20 financial aid as estimated credits.  Once 2020/21 financial aid has been confirmed, the family can then adjust the amount of the Monthly Payment Plan.

Enrollment in the 2020/21 plan for incoming families will be available once IRISHPAY access is granted shortly after the May 1 confirmation date with the Admissions Office.

Adjustments to the Plan 

The enrollment process will include budget worksheets to assist with determining the plan amount.  If you are not certain of personal financing options and/or the amount of financial aid, you can still enroll using your best estimates.  Payment plan balances will be adjusted to match actual student account balances once charges and financial aid credits have been applied.  If the adjustment will decrease the amount of the plan, the plan owner will be notified via email and the plan will automatically be adjusted.  If the adjustment will increase the amount of the plan, the plan owner will be notified via email and will have to agree to increase the amount of the plan.
