On-Campus Housing & Meal Plan

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).

If any of the criteria above apply to you and you will not be living on campus, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions so that your record may be updated accordingly.

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.

Payment for tuition, fees, and other institutional charges is due in full at the time of registration. The NSU Online Payment Plan is a payment option designed to provide budgetary assistance in meeting a student’s semester education expenses. Domestic NSU students who wish to defer their payments for the semester, may enroll in an NSU Payment Plan. If you are an international student, you may avail yourself of Flywire to create your own payment plan with flexible payment dates that work best for you. 

Eligibility Requirements for NSU Payment Plans:

  • 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.
