Students may not be given refunds for portions of tuition paid by financial aid funds. As appropriate, the respective financial aid programs will be credited in accordance with federal regulations. Students should notify the Office of Financial Aid prior to withdrawing to determine the effect this will have on financial aid. For complete withdrawals, please refer to the Return of Title IV Funds policies located at Failure to comply with these requirements could jeopardize future receipts of the Title IV student assistance funds at any institution of higher education the student may attend. If a student is due a refund, it will be mailed to the student’s address or deposited directly into the student’s checking account after the dean—or designee—of the respective college has approved the withdrawal and the drop request has been processed. The tuition refund policy is subject to change at the discretion of the university’s board of trustees/the NSU administration. Changes to a semester’s registration will not be accepted 20 days after the semester ends. Short-Term Preloans The Office of Financial Aid at the HPD administers preloans for students who encounter emergency situations prior to receipt of financial aid refunds. Students must be enrolled for the semester, have a completed financial aid file, and must be receiving financial aid with sufficient funds to cover total charges due the university, the loan amount, and the processing fee charged. When approved, disbursement is made electronically through direct deposit within two to three business days if the student has a direct deposit authorization on file with the Office of the University Bursar. If a direct deposit authorization is not on file, it may take up to two weeks for the student to receive the loan funds in the form of a check sent through the U.S. Postal Service.
