Tax Information

Welcome to the Nova Southeastern University Tax Information page. This page is designed to help you understand and file the tax forms you may receive related to your education expenses.

Please note that NSU cannot provide tax advice. We recommend that you consult with a tax adviser to determine how these forms apply to your specific tax situation, especially if you received a Form 1095-B or Form 8300. These forms typically apply to health insurance or scholarship/fellowship benefits, and may not be relevant to all students.


Form 1095-B is a health insurance tax form used to report information to the Internal Revenue Services (IRS) and to taxpayers.  Information reported includes type of coverage, dependents covered under the policy, period of coverage, and more.

Form 1095-B is mailed to all students covered under the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan by the insurance company at the beginning of each calendar year. For more details about Form 1095-B, visit the IRS website.


Colleges are required by law to issue Form 1098-T to students who paid qualified tuition and fees during the previous tax year (January 1st - December 31st). This form details the total amount you paid for tuition, fees, scholarships, and grants. 

Learn More about the 1098-T 


NSU is required by law to report receipt of more than $10,000 in cash over a course of a calendar year to the IRS by filing an IRS Form 8300. Money orders, cashier's checks, and traveler's checks are considered cash payments.

Personal and corporate checks are not considered cash payments. Students will be notified by the Bursar's Office once a Form 8300 has been filed.
