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

Students not paying in full by the due date will be charged a $50 payment plan fee and automatically placed on the NKU Installment Plan. For registrations and/or any account charges that take place after the due date, payment is due immediately.  Students that do not make the first full payment on the installment plan are subject to the cancellation for non-payment policy.

Your account must have a balance of less than $100 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. →→
