University Hall on a sunny day.

Your fall 2018 semester bill is now available in NEST. You may use this bill to assist in your financial planning before the payment deadline and as a point of reference when requesting funds from a 529 Plan, private loans, financial aid, etc.

All resident students must have their term bill paid in full, completed all financial aid requirements and/or have an payment plan established prior to Move-In Day.

The due date for your fall 2018 payment is Monday, August 13, 2018.

Your Bill

Your current balance now reflects the approved Montclair State University Board of Trustees costs for fall 2018, including tuition, fees, room and board if applicable and the health insurance premium for full-time students (12 or more credits for undergraduate, nine (9) or more credits for graduate). Montclair State University reserves the right to change tuition, fees, health insurance premium, room and board, every academic year.

Financial Aid: This bill also shows the financial aid to be applied to your account and the net amount that will be due. If you have been offered a Federal Stafford Loan, please remember you must go to NEST and accept your loan. If you do not accept the loan, it will not disburse onto your account as payment.

REDUCE YOUR BILL: The Aetna Student Health Insurance site is now open to allow you to either waive the health insurance plan. Students who do not complete a waiver by the deadline will be automatically enrolled in the plan and will be responsible for the annual premium. For more information about health insurance, please visit the Student Health Insurance web page.
