How the Bursar Works with Financial Planning

Our colleagues in the Bursar and Student Financial Planning Offices counsel students on the financial aid options for which they qualify, including federal student loans, once students have been accepted to Norwich University.

Registration Deposit for New Graduate Students

Prior to beginning your degree program at Norwich University, you are responsible for paying a refundable $250 registration deposit to help us hold your spot. Upon enrollment the deposit is applied to your tuition bill. Your admissions advisor will contact you with details and help you through the process. This deposit does not apply to bachelor's degree completion students.

How Students Pay for their Education

There are a number of options for paying for your education including:

Understanding Your Student eBilling Process (NUpay)

Prior to the beginning of each semester, all students will receive an email notification with a link to view their eBill and pay online, through NUpay.

Please Note: New students will recieve an email notification with instructions for accessing NUpay after you've been accepted and paid your deposit.

Payment Schedule

Your Monthly Student Statement

Student account statements are available on NUpay. Students may recieve statement updates by setting email notifications in NUpay with the student’s email address of record. The Student Statement reflects the current status of a student’s account. Students should monitor statements to confirm posting of credits from checks, loans, and outside tuition assistance.

Refund Checks

If overpayment occurs, federal loans and grants are refunded automatically. Refund checks are available after the semester starts and once a student is confirmed active in the classroom. Refunds checks are generated weekly and mailed on Friday's.
