SNHU Freezes Tuition For Its Campus Programs
Manchester, N.H. (December 7, 2017) - As part of its commitment to make college more accessible, Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) has frozen the rate of tuition for its campus programs. The tuition freeze applies to all undergraduate campus programs for the 2018-19 academic year.
"As tuition continues to rise nationwide, we are proud to freeze tuition for our campus programs for the second year in a row," said Dr. Patricia Lynott, campus president, SNHU. "We know college is increasingly out of reach for many, and we are working hard to find ways to make higher education more affordable and accessible for students."
While tuition remains frozen, SNHU is committed to investing in new, state-of-the art facilities and programs that provide a first-class academic experience for students. The university recently opened a facility to house the new College of Engineering, Technology and Aeronautics (CETA) and a 300-bed residence hall that includes a game room, fitness center and study rooms. SNHU has also announced plans for a new engineering and technology building set to open in 2019. A new athletics complex, Penmen Stadium, as well as a refurbished School of Education building will be unveiled this spring.
Ranked the Most Innovative University in the North by U.S. News & World Report, SNHU is committed to building degree programs that expand access to underrepresented populations in higher education. Last fall, SNHU launched a new engineering program with the goal of expanding access to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education for women and minorities.
Across the nation, tuition at private nonprofit institutions grew 13% over the past five years, and student loan debt has reached an all-time high. As the cost of a degree increases, SNHU will continue to work toward keeping a college education within reach for all students.
