What is Cost of Attendance?

The Cost Of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of the cost of attending NSU for the academic year. It is based on several factors, including tuition and fees, food and housing, course materials, supplies and equipment, transportation, and miscellaneous personal expenses. The estimated COA is used to determine how much financial aid a student is eligible for.

Keep in Mind...

  • Since tuition is credit-based, program costs vary depending on the number of credits required to complete your degree.

  • NSU requires all students to carry adequate health insurance coverage. Students will automatically be enrolled in the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan, and their student accounts will be charged when they register for classes. Students who already have health insurance must opt out of the NSU Student Health Insurance Plan each academic year by the given waiver deadline for their program. For detailed information, including waiver deadlines, access to the online waiver, NSU Student Health Insurance Plan features, costs, and more, students should visit the Bursar’s website.

  • Tuition and fees are subject to change at any time. For past tuition rates and fees, please consult the catalog for the appropriate academic year. You can also contact the NSU Financial Aid Office to learn more about COA or to speak with a financial aid counselor.
