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. 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.

To help protect the health and safety of everyone, we are only accepting student payments online or by mail. See Make a Payment for more information. Account Counselors are available to review student accounts and advise on payment options Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. If you have a question or would like to schedule an appointment, please email us at bursar@niu.edu. We will respond to your request within 24 business hours. We ask that you continue to review our website, as well as the Official NIU Community website, for updates.

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!
