News and Announcements

NSU Payment Plan Now Available Online in NSU eBill

The Office of the University Bursar is pleased to announce that NSU eBill has been enhanced with a new self-service feature—an automated payment plan. Payment for tuition, fees, and other institutional charges is due in full at the time of registration. The new payment plan is a voluntary deferred payment option designed to provide a little extra time in meeting your education expenses for the semester/term.

Eligibility Requirements:

  • A student must have a $500 minimum balance to be deferred after all discounts, financial aid awards, resources, and other credits have been applied.
  • All prior balances must have been paid in full.
  • A nonrefundable $75 finance charge (enrollment fee) and a down payment is due upon enrollment.
  • International students are not eligible.
  • For best results from this feature, registration for classes and financial aid requirements should be complete before enrolling in the plan.

To access the NSU Payment Plan option, log into NSU eBill and click on “Enroll in Payment Plan.” For details, visit the bursar's Payment Plan Webpage. 


NSU Changes Reporting for Education Tax Credits (1098-T)

Due to a change in reporting requirements under federal law, beginning with tax year 2018, Nova Southeastern University will report the amount paid for qualified tuition and related expenses, not the amount billed on your annual IRS Form 1098-T.  Depending on your income (or your family’s income, if you are a dependent), whether you were considered full- or half-time enrolled, and the amount of your qualified educational expenses for the year, you may be eligible for a federal education tax credit. For detailed information about claiming education tax credits, refer to IRS Publication 970. Please note that Nova Southeastern University does not give tax advice.
