News and Announcements

Be on the Lookout for Your 2019 Tax Forms in January 2020

1098-T - Sign Up for Electronic Delivery

NSU will be providing all eligible students with an IRS Form 1098-T in January 2020. This document informs you that you may be eligible for federal income tax education credits, such as the American Opportunity Credit. You may choose to receive your Form 1098-T electronically instead of through the mail. With this option, once your tax information is ready, you will receive an email that will direct you to your secure SharkLink account to download the form.  

To receive Form 1098-T electronically, NSU requires your consent. Without your consent, you will receive a paper Form 1098-T via the mail which will take longer to receive and increase the chance of the form getting lost, misdirected, or misplaced once received. 

Sign Up for Electronic Delivery 

 For more information, visit our Form 1098-T page.


1095-B (Health Insurance Tax Form)

Form 1095-B is mailed to all students covered under the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan by Aetna at the beginning of each calendar year. In addition, students may login to their Aetna account to access their Form 1095-B. For more information visit our Form 1095-B page.

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:

  1. You are married.
  2. You reside with a parent or legal guardian within the tricounty area (Broward, Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach).

Health Insurance

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

Once the online waiver has been processed, your health insurance charge will be reversed.

As you work through the academic challenges of the semester, time passes quickly. Be aware, however, you will not be able to register for the upcoming semester if you have a balance due on your NSU account. To get a handle on your NSU student account, follow these tips:

  1.  Regularly log in to SharkLink to view your student account on the “My Account” page.

  2.  Click on “Holds” to view if you have any holds that may prevent registration.

  3. Click on “My Financial Aid” to verify you have fulfilled all financial aid requirements for timely disbursements.

  4. If you need assistance paying an outstanding balance, consider the following resources: 

    • Request to enroll in an NSU Payment Plan.

    • Investigate student employment opportunities.

    • Apply for a Federal Direct PLUS Loans.
      These loans allow creditworthy graduate/first professional students and parents of dependent undergraduate students to borrow up to the full cost of tuition and related educational expenses, less any financial aid the student may receive. You may complete the PLUS request process at
    • Contact Enrollment and Student Services at (954) 262-5200 for assistance in reviewing your account.

Payment for tuition, fees, and other institutional charges is due in full at the time of registration.

NSU students, excluding international students, who wish to defer their payments for the semester, may enroll in an NSU Payment Plan.

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.
