SNHU Advantage Program

You can afford college.

Pay only $10,620 a year with SNHU Advantage.

Think you have to put off going to college? Think again. Save on tuition and earn an associate degree with Southern New Hampshire University's Advantage Program, offered exclusively at our Salem location.

Students earn an associate degree in liberal arts in two years, and then can decide to continue working toward a bachelor’s degree, either at the main campus, at one of our centers and/or online.

Upon successful completion of the SNHU Advantage program, students receive automatic acceptance into the Manchester campus undergraduate day program or SNHU’s College of Online and Continuing Education.

All credits transfer into the Manchester undergraduate day program (with the exception of the culinary program) and merit-based scholarships, ranging from $2,000 to $15,000, are available.

The Boston Globe calls SNHU Advantage "a revelation for recessionary times."

SNHU Advantage is for students who wish to save on tuition or who do not wish to attend a traditional, full-time undergraduate day program. You can save money, keep your job and live at home while earning a degree.
