UMass Amherst works with Nelnet Business Solutions (QuikPAY) to provide a no-interest installment payment plan program for students. The plan allows monthly scheduled installments from a US bank account or credit card. Installments are due either on the 10th or 20th of each month depending on the plan you sign up for. A non-refundable enrollment fee is required. Our plan allows for five (5) monthly payments.
