Employer Reimbursement Benefits

Payment in full deferment (Tuition Reimbursement Only)

Students who wish to defer their payment in full until receiving their employer reimbursement may enroll in a deferred payment plan through Nelnet Business Solutions. This plan is available to students in the Non Residential Programs and College of Education (graduate classes) who have employer reimbursement benefits and wish to defer payment. This option can be found by logging into your student account via Self Service at This is an interest-free plan. Nelnet charges a non-refundable $15 fee to defer payment in full 60 days after post grades. Payment is charged on the 5th of the deferment month. You can choose either free e-check withdrawals from a checking/savings account or payment with an American Express, Discover, Mastercard or Visa credit card, subject to the 2.85% convenience fee.

Please do not assume your payment plan will automatically be adjusted or terminated if payment or financial aid is received. The same rules apply if a class is dropped or added. You should review your agreement balance online through or contact the Doane Business Office at 402.826.8250 to confirm any changes. 

Students will be allowed to register for classes each term as long as their student account is in good standing and their deferment plan is current with the term.

Employer Tuition Assistance (Via Company Voucher)

Some companies provide tuition payment directly to Doane University. These companies will provide a credit voucher to the student or Doane. Students using company vouchers are not required to enroll in the deferred payment plan through Nelnet Business Solutions, as outlined in the above paragraph. These vouchers authorize Doane University to bill the company directly for the student’s tuition and fees. The vouchers must be received by the Student Account Office no later than the first date of the term. It is not assumed that the student has continuous employment with the same company. New vouchers are required for each term. Contact your Human Resource Department to see if your employer participates in this program. The Student Account Office will invoice the employer after census day for that appropriate term. If payment is not received from the employer, the balance becomes the student’s responsibility. There is no additional student cost related to this type of payment arrangement as Doane University is paid directly by the company.
