Your Success is Worth the Investment

We firmly believe that everyone admitted to Nova Southeastern University deserves the opportunity to attend NSU and understand that tuition costs are a major factor when making decisions about your future. That's why we want to make sure you have a clear understanding of the costs associated with earning your degree at NSU. 

NSU offers a variety of financial aid options, including academic scholarships/program discounts, employer assistance, veterans benefits, and low-interest student loans. These programs can help most students reduce the cost of their education and make it more affordable, helping you achieve your goals. Payment plans are also available.

NSU May Cost Less Than You Think

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.

2023-24 COA for Graduate Degrees (based on 18 credits)

These amounts reflect the estimated costs for a full-time student residing off campus. Different enrollment statuses or living arrangements may incur different costs. Visit the Bursar's website for information on university-wide fees.

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.
