Tuition and Fee Information

NSU tuition and fees vary based on a student’s college, program, and level (undergraduate, graduate, or doctoral) and are annually approved by the board of trustees in the spring for the upcoming academic year. Rates are subject to change without notice.

Undergraduate Tuition Rates

Explanation of Undergraduate Tuition Rates

Flat Rate 12-18 Credits

All students enrolling in 12–18 credit hours per semester pay flat-rate tuition in the fall and winter semesters based on total attempted credits. Students will not be charged additional tuition for adding classes as long as they do not go above the 18-credit hour limit.

More than 18 Credits

Students seeking to register for course loads above 18 credits must request permission from their division or department chair. Students taking more than 18 credits per semester are responsible to pay the flat rate plus the per credit amount for each additional credit taken.

Less Than 12 Credits

Students enrolled in 1–11 credits will be charged per credit based on total attempted credits. Students who initially register for 1–11 credits, then add credits that increase their course load to 12–18 credits, will be charged the full flat-rate tuition. Students who officially drop courses and fall below 12 credits will have their tuition recalculated on a per-credit basis.

Summer Tuition
Tuition during summer semester is charged per credit regardless of the number of enrolled credits.

Credits that are dropped during the first week of class do not count as attempted credits for tuition purposes. Credits from which a student withdraws (no refund given) are counted as attempted credits. Dropping or adding classes may result in undesirable consequences. Adding classes may result in additional charges and dropping classes may impact your financial aid. Before you make schedule changes, carefully review the academic calendar for pertinent deadlines. If you are unsure how a schedule change may impact your student account, contact an Enrollment and Student Services representative for assistance.
