About Nelnet Bank

Our mission is to help families achieve their dreams with financial knowledge and access to education.

Discover Your Financial Future

Nelnet was founded over 40 years ago on one simple idea: to serve our customers and make their educational dreams possible. We created Nelnet Bank to bring that experience to education financing.

Nelnet Bank rewards borrowers for their hard work with better, smarter loan solutions. Our borrowers have big dreams for the future – we help them dream even bigger.

Give Voice

We meet customers where they are. Empathy and experience help us gain a deeper understanding of customer needs and anticipate new solutions.
