Third Party Billing

Using the Florida Prepaid College Plan 

Nova Southeastern University accepts and bills the Florida Prepaid College Plan for tuition, fees, and costs for on-campus housing. Florida Prepaid College Plans are based on the tuition rates of the tax-assisted Florida public colleges and universities, whereas NSU is a private, not-for-profit institution. The difference between NSU tuition, fees, and on-campus housing costs and the allocations through the Florida Prepaid College Plan is the responsibility of the student. 

Students new to NSU must first contact Florida Prepaid at 800-552-GRAD to authorize NSU for payment.

Students with Restricted Florida Prepaid Plans

If a student is on the restricted Florida Prepaid plan, NSU will invoice for the value of the credit hours the student is registered for after the drop/add period each semester. Note: The value of each credit hour is determined by Florida Prepaid and is subject to change each academic year.

Students with Unrestricted Florida Prepaid Plans

Students with unrestricted Florida Prepaid plans must complete a Florida Prepaid College Plan Billing Request Form to specify how they would like NSU to invoice their plan. Students may elect to have NSU bill for their remaining account balance after all financial aid has paid to the account or they may specify a dollar amount they wish NSU to bill for each semester. NSU will bill students’ Florida Prepaid plan according to these instructions until the Florida Prepaid plan value has been depleted. Students may request changes to this procedure before by submitting a new Florida Prepaid College Plan Billing Request Form prior to the start of a semester to ensure timely billing.

Tuition Assistance Plans

Please note: The tuition assistance plans listed below will generally be applied to tuition and fee charges not covered by anticipated financial aid awards. Advance refunds based on postdated payments, employer tuition reimbursement, etc. will not be available.

  • Tuition Deferment
    (College of Computing and Engineering and H. Wayne Huizenga College of Business and Entrepreneurship only)
    Eligible students in the above mentioned colleges may participate in a corporate partnership/tuition deferment program. Students must verify employer eligibility with their academic advisors and complete the following steps upon registration: 
    • Send an email to from their employer email address requesting deferment for the respective semester.
    • Complete a deferment form provided by the Office of the University Bursar-Student Accounts.
    • Pay a $75.00 deferment service fee, along with applicable semester fees.
    • Fax a completed credit card authorization form for the deferred tuition to (954) 262-3249.
Please note: The deferred tuition is due five weeks after the completion of each course, note the semester.

  • Tuition Direct Billing
    A student whose employer, sponsor, or guarantor has agreed to be direct-billed by NSU must notify the Office of the University Bursar-Student Accounts department prior to the start of the semester. Examples include other countries, State Vocational Rehabilitation Services, State 529 Plans, and military (non-GI related). Students must complete the following at the time of registration and prior to the start of the semester:

    • Provide a voucher, financial guarantee, letter of credit or authorization from the respective payer, including the authorized amount, enrollment period, student's name, authorized signature, and complete billing information. 
    • Where applicable, pay any amount due not covered by billed party. 

The bursar's office provides provisional credits before the tuition and fee payment deadline for students whose sponsors pay with an invoice. Any difference in the amount of the provisional credit and the sponsor payment will be the student's responsibility. 

If your sponsor pays only according to specific caveats, such as upon course completion or after acceptable grades are submitted, you will not qualify for a provisional credit, and we will process your sponsorship as a tuition reimbursement.


  • Tuition Reimbursement
    Some employers/sponsors/guarantors make payments directly to the student under tuition reimbursement programs. These programs are between the student and the employer only. Students may send an email to from their SharkLink (NSU) email account to request a receipt of paid charges

Please note that students under employer tuition reimbursement programs are not exempt from the university’s payment policy. Students must ensure that their accounts remain free from holds so that they may access their transcripts at the end of each semester for tuition reimbursement purposes.
