Affording NSU University School

We recognize that investing in your child’s education requires both a thoughtful decision and a considerable financial commitment. NSU University School seeks to admit talented and motivated students regardless of family income. Beginning in Middle School and continuing through Upper School, families are welcome to apply for financial aid.

NSU University School uses Financial Aid for School Tuition (FAST), a third party service, to collect and review a family’s financial information. NSU University School will provide financial awards based on demonstrated need as well as the family’s ability to contribute to tuition. For more information about Financial Aid click here.

To assist with payments, NSU University School offers several payment options including annually, semi-annually, or monthly.

FAST applications are available each year beginning in January and continue through April for new families and March for returning families. Be sure to read the Financial Aid Guidelines by clicking here.

Finding the right school for your child can be one of the most important decisions you will make. We are here to help you through the financial aid process. Please contact us with your questions.
