Late fees can be placed on accounts any time after the due date, if the account remains fully or partially unpaid. The university typically waits, however, until after the conclusion of the add/drop period, for the specified semester, prior to assessment of late fees. These fees are based on the amount past due at the time of assessment, and can range from $75–$200. Late fees are assessed once per semester.

If a student or payer wishes to dispute a late fee assessment, they must do so in writing, to studentaccounts@northeastern.edu. Please be sure to include the student’s name, NU ID, and reason for the dispute in the email.
