Students interested in the NSU Spartan Payment Plan should contact the Office of Student Financial Services at (757) 823-8381.

In order to receive the special arrangements, the student must bring or send a letter of authorization from the granting agency to the Office of Student Financial Services, H. B. Wilson Hall, Room 130 prior to or at the time of registration.
