Authorized Payers

If a parent, guardian, or other third party is responsible for paying the bills, the student will need to set them up as an "authorized payer". Authorized payers are able to view current statements, check account activity, and pay online via their bank account. 

STUDENTS:  To set up an authorized payer, log on to Nelnet Quikpay  enter your ID number and Pin and click Logon.  If you forgot your pin, click 'Generate a NEW PIN' and one will be emailed to your Vassar e-mail. Once you click Logon, click 'view bill' and you will be in Nelnet Quikpay.   Once in Quikpay, click on "Authorized Payers". Follow the instructions to create a sign on for the authorized payer.  The authorized payer will then receive a confirmation email with the sign on and temporary password.
