  • There is no interest, finance charges, or credit check.
  • A new plan is required for each term.
  • Payment options are flexible and setup fees are affordable.
  • The earlier you sign up, the more payment options you have, and the lower your enrollment fee and down payment.

Remove Unpaid Balance Holds

Students who owe $100 or more will have a UB (Unpaid Balance) hold placed on their record which means they cannot add, drop, or change classes in their schedule.

Signing up for a payment plan will prevent or remove the UB unpaid balance hold for the current term balance.

Please note: Students who have unpaid balance holds from prior terms will need to contact Admissions and Records for further assistance by phone at 714-992-7075 or text at 714-515-7611.

When you sign up for a payment plan, be sure to have the following information:

  • myGateway student ID number.
  • The name and address of the person responsible for making the payments.
  • Account information for the responsible person.
  • Financial institution’s name and telephone number, account number, and the financial institution’s routing number.

IMPORTANT! If you have questions about creating a payment plan, your agreement or need to make a change to your address, telephone number, or account number, call Nelnet Business Solutions at (800) 609-8056. Please be sure to have your agreement number and access code available before placing the call.
