Payment Plans


Payment plans are now available to students who need an option for paying course and tuition fees/credit unit fees not covered by Financial Aid and/or other sources. Cypress College is now using Nelnet as our payment plan provider.

  • You must be enrolled in classes before you can enroll in the Nelnet Payment Plan
  • 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
  • Enrollment in this plan is easy and available online
  • There is an non-refundable $25 fee to set up a payment plan

To sign-up, log into myGateway and navigate to Tools > Student Tools > Pay Account Balance


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

  • 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
