RECREATION BOND FEE—The Recreation Bond Fee is assessed to all Flagstaff campus classes in addition to tuition.

FINANCIAL AID TRUST FEE—The Financial Aid Trust Fee: House Bill 2144, passed by the Arizona Legislature, subjects all students to a surcharge to benefit students with financial need. All students are required by law to pay this fee.

ARIZONA STUDENT ASSOCIATION FEE—A fee was voted by students of the three state universities to fund the nonprofit lobbying organization representing Arizona university students to the Arizona Board of Regents, the state Legislature, and the U.S. Congress. Students may request a refund of this fee which must be postmarked before the twenty-first (21st) day of the semester in which the refund is being requested.

This information must be sent to Arizona Student Association, 3507 N. Central Ave., Phoenix, AZ 85012. Requests dated after the 21st day will be denied. Questions regarding ASA, the fee, or refund policy may be forwarded to the ASA central office at (602)999-6358.

INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY FEE—Arizona Board of Regents approved an information technology fee as a new funding mechanism to assure NAU can continue to provide valuable information technology services that students increasingly expect at a modern university.  This fee will help support a wide array of technologies that are increasingly critical to NAU students' higher education experiences.

STUDENT HEALTH FEE—The $15 health fee is used to support affordable health and mental health services on campus.  Health services include health promotion and public health services that benefit the entire campus.  For a nominal office visit fee, students have access to physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, psychologists, counselors and more.  Please see for more about health services and for counseling services.

For those students eligible for either the HOPE SCHOLARSHIP TAX CREDIT or the LIFETIME LEARNING CREDIT, statements reflecting tuition payments made to NAU will be sent by January 31st covering the previous calendar year.


Students are encouraged to review their health insurance needs. Health insurance for the individual student may be purchased through the registration process by checking the appropriate box on the Course Registration Drop/Add Form, or by visiting the Fronske Health Center. Students wishing to purchase health insurance for a spouse or dependent must visit Fronske Health Center to enroll.

Students are reminded that if insurance is indicated on the registration form, payment must be made together with registration and tuition or the student insurance will be deleted.
