As Brandeis launches Workday Student many business processes and policies have been reviewed and updated. Changes related to Student Accounts are below.
Brandeis partners with Nelnet to offer a monthly payment plan to families as a method to spread the cost of a semester over several months. Payments are required to be made on the scheduled due date, in the methods allowed by Nelnet, and must be paid directly to Nelnet. Enrollment in the monthly payment plan will be through the Nelnet Student Account Portal.
For full details of the Monthly Payment Plan changes review the Payment Options tab.
Student can view their e-bill account transactions, make payments and manage monthly payment plans through the Nelnet Student Account Portal. Students link to the Nelnet Student Account Portal through the Student Account application in Workday Student.
Students can grant parents or other parties access to their account details by adding them as an Authorized Party. Parents/Authorized Parties can access the portal https://online.campuscommerce.com/SignIn.aspx. Students should set up their Nelnet account and add any Authorized Party in prior to the issuance of the bill.
The Nelnet Student Account Portal displays the same balance as Workday but it is displayed in different formats. To understand how to view your balance in both systems please review the Nelnet View Student Account Balance Job Aid
