Tuition & Costs

Tuition Management Systems being replaced by Nelnet in 2021

Several years ago, Nelnet acquired Tuition Management Systems (TMS). The Mount is currently in the process of switching from TMS' Student Account Center site (msj.afford.com) to Nelnet's system. The msj.afford.com site will remain active until late 2021 to process student billing and payments for Summer 2021 (S421).

What is Student Account Center?

Student Account Center (SAC) is Mount St. Joseph University's online student billing system. It replaces hard copy billing statements that were previously mailed. Student Account Center is powered by Tuition Management Systems (TMS) and has its own web site at msj.afford.com.

While Student Account Center is being replaced by Nelnet's student billing and payment plan system, bills for the Summer 2021 (S421) semester are still being made available only withing Student Account Center and you can make payments for summer through that site as well. You will only be able to view your statements in SAC through late 2021, so download any copies of past statements that you might need for your records.
