NIU generates account statements at the beginning of every month for any financial activity that has occurred on your student MyNIU account. Your student account includes all NIU charges such as tuition and related fees, other common charges such as medical insurance, room and board, bookstore, etc., and all payments, financial aid, or other credits. Students are notified by email when a new electronic statement (E-Statement) is available via MyNIU.
Initial account statements for the fall and spring semesters are issued approximately two to three weeks after the start of the semester (with the exception of summer semester as well as students participating in the Huskie Installment payment Plan). Statements will continue to be issued monthly with payment of any new charges due at the end of the month on the 28th (see Payment Due Dates).

You can view your financial account information online 24/7 via MyNIU. Account statements can be accessed by navigating:
Financial Account tile > Account Services > View Account Statements
See our View Account Statements How-to Guide for more details.
Prefer to also receive a printed statement? Currently enrolled students that would like to receive a printed statement, please email email@example.com from your student Z-ID email and specify the address for the printed statement to be mailed. If you do not specify the address, the printed statements will be mailed to your permanent address unless a billing address is on file.
