If a student is entitled to a refund of tuition and fees, the refund will first be applied to any sources of financial aid from which the student may have been awarded. Once all balances owed to NSU have been satisfied, any excess funds remaining will be refunded to the student.
Refunds will generally be delivered to students in the form of a check unless the student has a valid Direct Deposit Authorization on file or payment has been made by credit card or gift card, in which case the excess credit will be returned to the card.
Students receiving federal and state financial aid should consult a financial aid counselor before dropping or withdrawing from courses to ensure compliance with federal and state requirements for satisfactory academic progress (SAP).
State refund policies may vary, based upon your permanent residence address. Click below to view state policies differing from those in Florida.
