Making Payments

Northwest University requires that payment for all semester charges, tuition and fees, be paid in full on or before the first day of classes each term. There will be a 1.5% service fee for credit card and online debit card payments.

There are a few ways to make a payment:

Cashier’s Office

You can pay in person on the first floor of the Davis Administration building (cash, credit/debit, check), or over phone 425-889-5241.


Log-on to your Eagle Profile and click on Transaction and Running Balance to view transactions and the current owing balance. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on "Make an Online Payment."


Log-on to Student Account Balance and make a payment. This site will not list an owing balance, it is just a payment site, so you will need to be prepared with the amount you want to pay and you will  need your student ID.

Payment Plan with Nelnet (formerly TMS)

Monthly payment plans through Nelnet allows you to pay your education expenses in smaller, more manageable monthly installments, and can be used in addition to financial aid. Payment plans are available for fall and spring, for August, October, February, and April start, with 6 monthly payments and a $75 sign-up fee for each term.

A budget is set up with this outside agency based on estimated charges less estimated financial aid (excluding work study) for each term. To see your estimated net balance owed refer to your Cost Estimate and Financial Aid Award letter. If you did not file for financial aid please contact Student Financial Services for costs.

For example: If your estimated net balance owed is $6,000 per term, you would have 6 payments of $1,000 if signed up for the payment plan.

Enrollment Deadlines:

6-Month Plan Available Enrollment Deadline & 1st Payment Due
Fall/August July 1st August 15th
Fall/October September 1st October 15th
Spring/February January 1st February 15th
Spring/April March 1st April 15th

If you enroll after the first payment is due, the preceding payments are due at the time of enrollment in the payment plan.

Additional Information:

  • $75 enrollment fee is due on enrollment in payment plan

  • You can adjust your payment plan budget at any time
  • Payments due on the 15th of each month to avoid late fees on the payment plan and your Eagle account

Late Charges

A late fee of 1.5% of the owing balance will be assessed after the payment due date.

You will be unable to register for future quarters or obtain official academic transcripts or diplomas until your outstanding balance is paid in full.

If unpaid, the owing balance may be referred to a collection agency. You will be responsible for those additional fees of up to 40% or more added to your outstanding balance.
