Academic, program, and online services are provided only to the College of Computing and Engineering students who are currently registered. Students who are not registered are not entitled to receive services. Textbooks are not included in tuition and fees and must be purchased by the student. Students are responsible for their own lodging and travel expenses. Students must be registered to gain access to NSU's computing services. Rates are subject to change.

Once registered, students are personally responsible for the payment of their tuition and fees. Returned checks, canceled credit cards, employer or agency refusal to pay, ineligibility for financial aid, and other reasons for non-payment may result in a direct bill to the student, and/or referral to a collection agency.

Payment and refund policies are based on the view that a student registering for a class is reserving a place in that class and that tuition and fees cover the opportunity to secure that place in the class. Since no other person can purchase that place, the student is responsible for the tuition and fees associated with it.

Course Load Requirements

DEGREE PROGRAMS Students pursuing all programs must be registered for a minimum of 6 credits hours (master’s) and 8 credit hours (Ph.D.) in order to be considered full-time status. Student enrolled in 3 credit hours (master’s) and 4 credit hours (Ph.D.) or fewer credits per semester will be considered part-time status.

F1 VISA STUDENTS Students must maintain full-time enrollment of 6 credits per semester. 3 of those 6 credits must be taken in an on campus format. Student should meet with the Office of International Students (OIS) pertaining to their I-20 status.

NSU Student Health Insurance Fee

When you register for classes, you will automatically be enrolled in the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan, and the insurance premium for the semester will be charged to your NSU student account.

The average monthly premium for the 2019 NSU Aetna Student Health Insurance is $191. If you already have comparable health insurance coverage and do not need the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan, you must waive out of the NSU plan to have the charge reversed. Waivers must be completed at the start of each academic year by your program’s waiver deadline and are valid for one academic year.

Once your program’s waiver deadline has passed, you will no longer be able to reverse the charge for the first semester because the university will have submitted your information to Aetna for enrollment.

You will have another opportunity to waive out of the NSU plan for the second semester.

For more information, visit the NSU Student Health Insurance Department online at or call (954) 262-4060.

Tuition reimbursement by the student's employer

If the student submits a letter from the employer at registration time that establishes eligibility for tuition reimbursement, the student may choose a two payment plan. The first payment, due at registration, shall include all fees, 50 percent of the tuition, plus a $75 deferment fee. The second payment, due five weeks after the end of the term, shall equal 50 percent of the tuition. To secure this plan, the student must provide, at registration, a postdated check or credit card authorization for the deferred portion.
