Student Records and Financial Services
The Office of Student Records and Financial Services is designed to be a “one-stop” resource for information relating to academic records and registration, financial aid and student accounts.
Our knowledgeable and professional staff is available to assist students and parents. The office is located on the northeast section of campus in the Butler Building, which also houses Health Services and the Campus Store.
Niagara University is committed to helping students and their families afford an exceptional college education. Our philosophy of awarding financial aid is in keeping with our Vincentian tradition of helping others from all walks of life. In short, our goal is to provide students with a positive, caring environment so that they may grow to their full potential as well-educated and well-balanced individuals, regardless of their economic or social backgrounds.
While NU cannot fund the entire cost of an education for everyone, in most cases our Financial Aid staff can find innovative ways to make an NU education affordable. Information on federal, state and NU based programs and scholarships is available through the Financial Aid Office as are financing options and important deadlines.
Student Accounts can provide you with assistance related to various monetary assets such as billing schedules and fee structures as well as adding funds to your Convenient Campus Service accounts. Additionally the office provides information on refund policy, payment plans and meal plan options. We are essential to your success and work with you to ensure your payments are up to date, which allows you to focus on your classroom responsibilities.
Important messages regarding student accounts are sent through your myNU account so check it often!
The Records Office handles class registrations including any adjustments such as adding or dropping a class. Current students can register and make adjustments via their WebAdvisor account during established periods.
