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.
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.
The Nova Southeastern University (NSU) Student Health Insurance department transitioned to Enrollment and Student Services’ (ESS) Office of the University Bursar in June 2016. The department is responsible for charging the accounts of students who are enrolled in NSU programs that require their students to carry adequate health insurance coverage. Generally, this applies to most Health Professions Division (HPD) programs, all Traditional Undergraduate Day Students, all on-campus residential students, and full-time students in the J.D. Day program.
Students in mandatory programs will automatically be enrolled in the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan, and their account will be charged accordingly. If a student is insured in another insurance plan, he/she must opt out of the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan each academic year by the given deadline for his/her program. Students may also voluntarily enroll in the NSU Student Health Insurance plan.
Nova Southeastern University (NSU) has partnered with student health insurance servicer, Academic Insurance Solutions (AIS), to provide student health insurance services to NSU students. The 2016-2017 NSU Student Health Insurance Plan is underwritten by Aetna Student Health. For more information, visit the Bursar’s website at http://www.nova.edu/bursar/health-insurance/index.html.
Students interested in obtaining student health insurance coverage through AIS may visit AIS at www.novastudentinsurance.com or call 888-544-5502.
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 2015 calendar year include charges for educational services offered in the 2016 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 or the Alumni tab. Locate the billing account (or Alumni Connection) section and click on 1098-T Tax Form. Please note that 2015 charges for educational services rendered in 2016 do not qualify for the 2015 tax year.
