Student Accounts & Billing

The Office of Student Financial Services is responsible for processing tuition and fees, collecting payments, dispensing monthly payment option information, processing refunds and overall internal and external customer service.


Our semester billing cycle consists of an e-bill sent to your Student Account Center prior to the start of each semester. Subsequent student account activity will be issued via e-mail to your Brandeis email account.

Starting with the Fall 2021 semester, billing details and payments will be available via Workday Student and the new Nelnet Student Account Portal.  To access the bill, you will need to set up your Nelnet Student Account Portal Account and add any Authorized Party (parent or other persons you want to be able to pay your bill).  Authorized Party access lets whomever you register have direct access to your Student Account Portal, where they can contract for a monthly payment plan, pay directly by credit card or direct withdrawal from a checking or savings account. Nelnet accepts MasterCard, Visa, Discover and American Express. A user fee applies to all credit card transactions. There is no user fee for withdrawal from a checking or savings account.

You may add or delete an Authorized Party through your Nelnet Student Account Portal link in Workday Student, Student Account Worklet.  Added Authorized Parties will receive an email invitation with instructions for setting up a password to access the Nelnet Student Account Portal using their own login credentials. They should not use the student's login credentials.  Parents and other Authorized Parties can access the Nelnet Student Account Portal below:
