Details about student accounts, how to reload Huskie Bucks, what to do if you need to make a deposit, and how to request an adjustment on a customer’s account or invoice are available on our COVID-19 interim bursar guidelines page. We ask that you continue to review our website, and the NIU Coronavirus website, for updates.
