NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University is encouraging residential students to return to their homes for the remainder of the semester. In a message to students Friday, NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio said the measure is intended to help flatten the transmission curve of coronavirus.

Students should alert housing about the day they plan to move out by emailing  nsuleasing@campushousing.com.  NSU will issue residential students a 25 percent credit to their student accounts if they complete the following procedures.

  • Students must complete the Housing Questionnaire on MyNSU to declare their intentions by Monday, March 30.
  • Students must complete check-out procedures and move off-campus by Monday, March 30.
  • Students with extenuating circumstance that prevent them from moving out by March 30 should contact Stephanie Dyjack at dyjacks@nsula.edu.

The credit will first be applied to any outstanding balance on the student’s account, with any remainder being paid as a refund.

Students who must stay on-campus for the remainder of the semester will be responsible for their full semester room rate.  Those students should complete the Housing Questionnaire on MyNSU to declare their intentions by Monday, March 30. Students who do not complete the Housing Questionnaire on MyNSU by Monday, March 30, 2020, will be responsible for the full amount.

Anyone with questions or in need assistance should contact Stephanie Dyjack at dyjacks@nsula.edu.

 Any student on a traditional meal plan will be issued a 25 percent credit to their student account.  The credit will first be applied to any outstanding balance on the student’s account, with the remainder being paid as a refund.

Residential students and non-residential students who are on a traditional meal plan and wish to continue using dining services through the end of the semester should email Jennifer Kelly at andersonje@nsula.edu to continue.

 Any student who currently has an all-declining balance plan (Vic’s Max, Vic’s Lite, and Commuter) will be allowed to use their remaining DCB this semester, summer and through the Fall 2020 semester. The declining balance dollars remaining on the 19-meal plan, 14-meal plan, 5-meal plan plus, and 25 meal-plan plus will also be available for the rest of this semester as well as summer and Fall 2020.

Seniors graduating this semester or anyone with questions regarding their meal plan should contact Jennifer Kelly at andersonje@nsula.edu

The university is working on the process to issue the Housing and Meal Plan credits, and will continue to provide updates on the progress.
