Account statements are based on the information contained in your student financial account. Your student account includes all NIU charges and all payments, financial aid or other credits. Charges incurred to your account include tuition and related fees and other common charges such as medical insurance, room and board, bookstore, etc.
Initial account statements for a semester are issued approximately one month prior to the start of the semester. After the initial billing for the semester they will be issued monthly, with payment of any new charges due approximately three weeks from the date of the statement. These monthly notifications show all charges and payments that have occurred since the previous statement.
It is your responsibility to update your address with the university. An inaccurate address (local, permanent, or billing) may prevent or delay your receipt of critical and often time-sensitive materials. You can change your local or permanent address online via MyNIU .
Online Account Access
You can view your financial account information online 24/7 via MyNIU . Self service account statements can be accessed in the Student Center > Finances section by clicking the View Accounts Statements link. View our jobaid (pdf) for more details.
Please note: Although the Office of the Bursar is responsible for maintaining the record of your student account and issuing account statements to you, it does not have the authority to make changes to the charges or awards on your account. The Office of the Bursar can refer you to the appropriate office or department to direct your inquiry.
