Your bill for the spring 2023 semester is now available in NEST.

Payment Due Date: Monday, January 9, 2023

This bill reflects your balance using costs including tuition, fees, any applicable housing and meal plans. Some students also may have the University Health Insurance premium included in their spring 2023 balance (students affected by this will receive more information in the coming days with details on how to accept or waive the insurance). You may use this bill for your financial planning well before the payment deadline and as a point of reference when requesting funds from a 529 Plan, private loans, financial aid, etc.
