Notice to all students.

Invoices are not mailed. You must check your account balance online and pay any balance due by the posted due dates on the academic calendar.

  • You are responsible to cancel your registration by the posted due dates in the course schedule or to pay any balance due. Non-attendance or non-payment is not a cancellation and you will be held responsible to pay any amount owed.
  • A late fee may be charged if your account has any unpaid charges not covered by a deferment. Check your balances weekly as they can change during the term.  Some common examples that can change your balance owed are:
    • You did not include your entire tuition balance in your NBS  payment plan.
    • Your payment was returned due to insufficient funds.
    • You registered for additional courses resulting in additional charges that were not covered by one of the 7 options.
    • Your financial aid or third-party award was insufficient to cover your tuition, or you did not complete courses and aid had to be reversed.
    • You had loans available but didn’t sign the promissory note to activate the loan.
    • Fees added due to unreturned or damaged items loaned out during the semester.
  • Re-registering after being dropped: When you were taken out of your classes, there was a hold placed on your account; to lift the hold. Visit the Tuition office and provide the following:
    • A secured payment arrangement, confirmation of financial aid and verification of re-enrollment.
  • A hold on your account may be applied for any unpaid balances and your account could be turned over to an external collection agency.
