Tuition, Fees, & Surcharges

Fall 2014 and Spring 2015 Tuition Estimator

This tuition estimator was designed for estimating current tuition costs, mandatory fees, housing, and other costs assessed by Northern Illinois University for the current term or year. Note: These estimates only represent eligible charges and credits that are billed through the Office of the Bursar.

DISCLAIMER: Keep in mind that these calculations should not be considered your official guaranteed costs at NIU. Official tuition, fees, and surcharge rates are those billed and reported on your MyNIU account by the Office of the Bursar and are subject to change. Please refer to the Fees and Common Charges page within this website for additional information.

[1] Regional Courses Charges in this tuition estimator are estimated for undergraduate (non-Nursing) students only. For Undergraduate Nursing students and Graduate students, please refer to the Off-Campus Academics website for more details.
[2] Undergraduate and graduate students may be charged material fees per course for materials specific to the course of study. Students average about $50 - $100 per term, but have the potential of being assessed at a higher amount depending on their academic program or courses.
[3] To be eligible to charge books on your student Bursar account, students MUST be receiving financial aid for the term. Students can only charge up to $700 per Fall/Spring term on their account. Bookstore charges added to your student account will appear on your next monthly account statement or MyNIU account.
[4] Other variable fees represent charges that are not assessed to every student. They include program specific fees such as MAS Program Fee, Fast-Trak Fee, or graduate Regional Course Charges

Note: The financial aid reflected on a bill prior to the start of a semester is an estimate and, unlike tuition and fees, may not reflect actual registration. Prior to the start of a year or semester, initial financial aid awards are based on an assumption of full-time enrollment. Financial aid is periodically adjusted to match actual enrollment. The first repackaging of aid to match current enrollment occurs a few days prior to the first billing statement for a semester (July for Fall semester). Only students with registration for that semester are included. Repackaging will occur again prior to each billing statement until the semester begins. All students will be repackaged when enrollment is official at the end of the drop/add period, the second week of classes.

Grants and scholarships that are restricted to tuition and fees are disbursed to your bill prior to the first bill for a semester. Disbursement begins for all other aid, including student loans and Pell Grants, after the end of the drop/add period.

See Student’s Rights and Responsibilities for details on individual financial aid programs. It is important to note that financial aid eligibility is determined in accordance with the laws, regulations, and appropriation of the U.S. Congress, the State of Illinois, the NCAA, and Northern Illinois University, and is subject to adjustment or cancellation in the event of changes to these laws or your eligibility.
