Is a “Statement of charges” keeping you from getting your DODTA authorization from your ESO or military portal?

Some branches require it and some do not. If you do indeed need to verify Cost Verification form BEFORE you can get your DODTA authorization, please follow these steps:

  1. Send an email to: SFS@nevadastate.edu with the subject line “Statement of Charges”. In the body of the messages include your name, student ID, and the term or classes for which you need the cost verification.
  2. Watch for an email in your NS account from the NSU Third Party Billing Department. This will include a statement of charges with a breakdown for each class and it is generally sent within 3 business days after your request.
