Please read the following information carefully and thoroughly before accepting your financial aid award. Accepting the financial aid award offered to you signifies that you have read and agree to comply with all the terms and conditions listed below.
State Grants and Scholarships
All students awarded federal loans must be enrolled at least half-time. Half-time enrollment is defined as 6 credits per semester for all undergraduate students. For graduate and first professional students, your program of study defines half-time status.

Acceptance of this award represents a contract that requires you to meet the conditions in the following list. In addition, review information on student rights and responsibilities.
Awards are contingent upon actual receipt and verification of funds by NSU. If adjustments are made to the university's federal or state allocations, the university reserves the right to make adjustments to individual aid awards at any time, as necessary.
If you withdraw from NSU for any reason, you must notify Enrollment and Student Services. Financial aid awards may be adjusted, and you may be required to repay a prorated amount of the funds advanced to you for the semester from which you withdrew. You will be notified by the Bursar's Office of any balances owed to NSU. If you are entitled to a refund of tuition and fees, the refund will first be applied to any financial aid you have been awarded. Any excess funds will be disbursed to you after all balances owed to NSU have been satisfied. 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 Standards of Academic Progress.
Financial aid awards are valid for one academic year only and are not automatically renewed. Awards are renewed contingent upon completion and submission of a new financial aid application and continued eligibility. The academic year for financial aid purposes is defined by each program office and generally includes the fall and winter semesters. However, if eligible, students will be awarded for all semesters as defined by their program, including spring/summer semesters.
Payment of tuition, fees, and residential charges is due at registration. In accordance with the NSU payment policy, students registered for classes agree to pay in full all sums assessed by NSU for tuition, fees, housing, and any funds advanced to students that are required to be repaid (see section E). Delinquent debts may be referred to collection agencies or litigated. The student agrees to pay costs of collecting unpaid charges, including collection fees and/or attorney’s fees and court costs.
The Bursar's Office takes into consideration certified grants, scholarships, and loans shown on your financial aid award notice which may not yet be credited to your account. NSU students who wish to defer payment for any balances remaining after all discounts, financial aid, and other credits have been applied, may apply for a payment plan. Detailed information on the NSU payment plan, including application, is available on the website of the University Bursar. International students are not eligible to participate in the payment plan options.
For any questions regarding the tuition payment procedures, please contact the NSU Bursar's Office at 800-541-6682, ext. 25200, or (954) 262-5200.
All students must continuously meet all four Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) requirements in order to receive financial aid. SAP requirements include: qualitative measure (Grade Point Average), quantitative measure (annual credits successfully completed), maximum time frame (total allowable credits), and pace (overall credits successfully completed). For details, review NSU’s SAP Web page.
Failure to meet the required academic standards will result in the loss of your financial aid.
Students who are suspended or dismissed are ineligible for financial aid until they are restored to good standing at the end of the next evaluation period. In order to have your financial aid reinstated, you must attend NSU at your own expense until your financial aid eligibility is restored. Students who have extenuating circumstances may make an appeal to the Satisfactory Academic Progress Committee. The appeal must be made in writing, addressed to the committee in care of the Office of Student Financial Assistance, and include the following documentation:
