Returned Check Fee

Students whose E-Check or check payment gets returned by their bank to NKU will be charged a fee.

Financial Aid

If you applied for financial aid late or it is not appearing on your student account, you wil be automatically placed on the installment plan.  You will be charged the appropriate fees if your balance is not paid in full by the tuition due date.

Installment Plan

Your bill is due the first day of the semester or if you start mid-semester it is due upon registration.  If you are eligible, you will be offered the opportunity to participate in the payment plan.  If you are not on the plan any balance will be charged a late fee of 1.5% monthly.  If you are on the payment plan you will only accrue late charges if you miss a payment.  If you miss a payment you will be charged a 1.5% late fee monthly on your balance until you are caught up.

Your account must have a balance of less than $500 before you can register for a future enrollment period.

To avoid a financial obligation to NKU and or a grade liability, class withdrawals must be processed by the end of the 100% adjustment (refund) period for each term or session. The adjustment (refund) period dates can be found in the academic calendars. →→
