NSU Payment Policy

  • By registering for courses at Nova Southeastern University, the student accepts financial responsibility for payment. The student is responsible for the full balance on the account plus any additional costs which may be incurred by the university in the collection of these debts.
  • Payment is due in full at the time of registration. Account balances may be satisfied with anticipated financial aid awards and/or payment plans. Students may view their student account status including account balance, charges, payments, and financial aid awards in SharkLink. Financial aid recipients must ensure that all financial aid requirements have been fulfilled so that the financial aid awarded will be disbursed to the student’s account as scheduled. Financial aid requirements may include the completion of an online Master Promissory Note and entrance counseling for first-time loan borrowers or other documentation.
  • NSU ebills are sent the middle of each month. However, students should not wait for their billing statement to pay their tuition and fees to avoid late charges.
  • A student will not be able to register for future semesters until all outstanding balances from previous semesters have been paid in full. If a student has a balance at 30 days after the start of the semester, a hold and a $100 late fee will be placed on the account. The hold stops all student services, including but not limited to access to the University RecPlex and future registrations. It will remain on the student account until the balance has been paid in full.

On-Campus Residents 

  • Students with outstanding balances must contact a student accounts representative prior to their check-in date for payment, payment plan set-up, or the completion of outstanding financial aid requirements at (954) 262-5200. 
  • Please be advised that students will not be able to check-in to the Residential Life and Housing halls until all requirements to satisfy their outstanding balance have been fulfilled. 

Students Using Veteran Affairs (VA) Educational Benefits

In accordance with Title 38 US Code 3679 subsection (e) of the Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018, Nova Southeastern University (NSU) will not impose a penalty on any student using veterans education benefits under Chapter 31 (Vocational Rehabilitation & Employment) or Chapter 33 (Post 9/11 GI Bill®) because of the individual’s inability to meet his or her financial obligations to the institution due to the delayed disbursement of funding from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). For more details, refer to NSU's Pending Veterans Affairs Payment Policy.
