On-Campus Housing & Meal Plan
NSU requires all undergraduate students with 0-48 credit hours to live on campus and participate in the university's meal plan unless at least one of the following criteria applies:
- You are married.
- You reside with a parent or legal guardian within the tricounty area (Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach).
- You are at least 25 years old.
For questions, regarding these charges, please contact the Office of Residential Life & Housing at (954) 262-7052 or 800-541-6682 ext. 27052.
If any of the criteria above apply to you and you will not be living on campus, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions so that your record may be updated accordingly.
NSU requires all residential on-campus students to have some form of health insurance. If you currently maintain comparable coverage that is greater or equal to that of NSU’s policy, you must complete the online waiver form.
Should you have questions regarding the student health insurance plan, contact the student insurance department at (954) 262-4060 or 800-922-3420 or www.collegiaterisk.com.
Once the online waiver has been processed, your health insurance charge will be reversed.
Payment for tuition, fees, and other institutional charges is due at the time of registration. However, the university’s payment plans allow students to defer payment of balances remaining on their student account after all discounts, financial aid awards/resources, and other credits have been applied. NSU students, with the exception of international students, may sign up for a 4-month (fall) and/or a 4-month (winter) payment plan. A 3-month (summer only) payment plan is also available. The old 3-month and 10-month plan options have been phased out. For detailed information, visit the university's Payment Plan webpage.
NSU is required to provide each eligible student with a copy of his or her Form 1098-T in January. This form is informational only and serves to alert you that you may be eligible for federal income tax education credits. You may elect to receive this form electronically which is faster and more secure than receipt through the postal mail. Electronic Sign-up for IRS Form 1098-T.
NSU reports “amounts billed” for qualified tuition and related expenses, which appear in box 2 of your 1098-T Form. Therefore, box 1 will remain empty.
Please note that if box 7 is checked, amounts billed in the 2013 calendar year include charges for educational services offered in the 2014 calendar year. You may view a detailed breakdown of amounts billed by accessing your 1098-T information online via SharkLink. Access your 1098-T information by clicking on the Student tab. Locate the billing account section and click on 1098-T Tax Form. Please note that 2013 charges for educational services rendered in 2014 do not qualify for the 2013 tax year.
Additional questions regarding your 1098-T should be directed to your tax consultant.

Important Information For Main Campus Housing Residents
All on-campus residents must have satisfied their student account balance prior to their official check-in date. Account balances may be satisfied with anticipated financial aid awards and/or payment plans made with Enrollment and Student Services (ESS). Students may view their student account status including account balance, charges, payments, and financial aid awards in SharkLink. Financial aid recipients must ensure that all financial aid requirements have been fulfilled so that the financial aid awarded will be disbursed to the student's account as scheduled. Financial aid requirements may include the completion of additional paperwork or of an online Master Promissory Note and entrance counseling for first-time loan borrowers.
Students with outstanding balances must contact an ESS representative prior to their check-in date for payment, payment plan set-up, or the completion of outstanding financial aid requirements at (954) 262-5200 or (954) 262-3380.
Please be advised that students will not be able to check-in to the Residential Life and Housing halls until all requirements to satisfy their outstanding balance have been fulfilled.
