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. 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 May for new and 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 at 954-262-4506 or
