Community College System of New Hampshire
Tuition and Fees: Academic Year 2018 2019
Tuition Rates In addition to having the lowest college tuition in New Hampshire, The Community College System of
New Hampshire (CCSNH) strives to make college affordable through scholarships and loans. Our
affiliated Foundation provides scholarship assistance to eligible students enrolled at any College within
the system, and each College offers financial aid in the forms of grant aid, work study, and loans.
CCSNH charges the following tuition rates for academic year 2018 2019
In-State and all online courses New England Regional* Out-of-State / International
$210 per credit hour $315 per credit hour $478 per credit hour
As an example, an Associate in Arts program is a minimum of 60 credit hours. Therefore, the total cost
of the two-year program is 60 X $210, or $12,600 over two years $3,150 per semester. This calculation
does not include financial aid, nor does it include fees or credits that may be required above 60 credit
hours. Rather it is intended to illustrate how per-credit-hour prices cost per-semester and per-program.
A non-refundable fee of $100 is charged for admission of international students. Additionally, colleges
may require a non-refundable tuition deposit of $100.
All tuition and fees are subject to change without prior notice.
*The New England Regional Student Program is available through the New England Board of Higher Education (www.nehbe.org)
Tuition Discounts In addition to financial aid and scholarships, CCSNH offers discounts for many people. These include:
Students who live within fifty miles of a College but live out-of-state may be eligible to pay the in-state rate instead of New England Regional. Contact your Colleges Business Office to learn more.
CCSNH charges dual enrollment students in our Early College program half-price tuition
Dual-credit students taught in NH high schools as part of the Running Start program pay only $150 per course (prorated for courses fewer than three credit hours).
Eligible full-time CCSNH employees do not pay tuition, nor comprehensive student and academic instruction fee. Their dependents pay half-price tuition, plus applicable fees.
Each Running Start faculty member receives one course voucher for every Running Start course taught to cover cost of tuition (fees excluded) and may elect to transfer this voucher.
Preceptors / Clinical or practicum supervisors receive non-transferable fifty percent tuition vouchers for one course or workshop (these cannot be combined with any other discount).
Senior citizens pay half price tuition on credit courses, as well as all applicable fees.
National Guard members meeting prerequisites of the National Guard Education Assistance Program do not pay tuition, though are subject to all applicable fees and must matriculate into a degree-enhancing program.
Beyond the above, CCSNH provides discounts and full tuition waivers for many students, including for
programs listed above. For information on these and other scholarships, call your Colleges Financial Aid
