Understanding and Paying Your Bill

At Allegheny, we understand that management of financial obligations to attend college can be daunting. We would like to help simplify the process for you.

Check your Allegheny email often.

Please read any email that you receive from the Financial Services Office (finsrv@allegheny.edu) and forward to your parents if it concerns something that they can help you with.

Billing and Nelnet Student Account Center Portal

Detailed instructions on how you can access the Nelnet Student Account Center Portal can be found on our Financial Services website.

We do not send paper billing statements. You will be able to access your monthly billing statement as well as view up-to-date activity through a portal named the “Nelnet Student Account Center.” You access this through the link on your Self-Service Account.

Your billing statement will be ready the first week in July. You will receive an email when your billing statement has been generated.

Please follow the instructions in the email to view your account.

It is important that you access this immediately and share access with anyone who may be helping you pay your account.

The fall semester balance is due July 31.

How to Share Access to the Nelnet Portal


  1. Access the Nelnet Student Account Center through the link in your Self-Service account.
  2. Select the “Manage Account Access” button.
  3. Enter the email address of the person you would like to help you manage your billing statement.

Parents/Authorized Users

You can log into the Nelnet Student Account Center after your student invites you to share access. Once invited, you will receive an email asking you to register. After you register, you will be able to:

  • Have full access as an authorized user to the billing account
  • Receive emails regarding your student’s billing account
  • Make credit card and e-check payments
  • Set up a payment plan
  • Print billing statements

You will receive a few more communications from Financial Services before you arrive on campus. Please look for them in your Allegheny email account. We are here to help you complete all the necessary financial obligations before classes start. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions.
