Office of the Bursar

The Office of the Bursar has adjusted some of its hours and work processes to ensure students, faculty, and staff continue to have access to services during this unprecedented time. We ask that you continue to review our website for updates.

To help protect the health and safety of everyone, our preferred payment method for students is online or by mail (see all payment options).

Bursar staff are available in person, by phone and email (Bursar Email Form) to review student accounts and advise on payment options Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Additionally, personalized, remote appointments are available with account counselors Monday through Friday through our online appointment app. See Contact Us for more information.

The Office of the Bursar provides services and support to NIU students, commercial customers and other NIU departments. Our office processes payments (students and commercial) and refunds as well as offers payment plans and advice regarding your financial situation with NIU. Please contact us with any questions you may have; we are happy to help!
