An electronic check (eCheck or ACH transfer) is similar to writing a paper check. The only difference is that you are authorizing the debiting of your checking or savings account online without presenting a physical paper check.
Once you are logged on to the Nelnet Campus Commerce site and begin to make a payment, you will be asked which method of electronic payment you wish to use: credit card or electronic check (ACH).
You will need your bank account number and routing number (located at the bottom of your paper check). You can choose to store this information on the secure Nelnet Campus Commerce site for future use. If you choose not to store the account number and routing numbers on the Nelnet Campus Commerce site, you will have to re-enter this information each time you make a payment.
