Make It Official
Congratulations on your acceptance to Southern New Hampshire University. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus community.
Still making a final decision about attending SNHU? Register for a campus tour to experience life on campus! Weekday and weekend options are available throughout the summer.
Ready to make it official? Don't forget, you need to place your $100 deposit to secure your spot.
What’s next? After you submit your deposit, you’ll receive communication later in the spring providing you with helpful resources and next steps. We’ve included a list below of the most important steps you can take now to make your transition to SNHU easy.
Step 1: Access your mySNHU Account & Student Email
The mySNHU student portal is your virtual gateway to all things SNHU. This includes your SNHU email account, our academic portal called Brightspace and our bill payment system. To get started, log into your mySNHU account. Your login credentials are emailed to you shortly after you’re accepted to the University. Please contact the Campus Admission Office if you need assistance with your credentials. The first time you log in, click on ‘use this link to create/reset your password’ and follow the prompts to create your personal SNHU password. If you have problems logging into your account, you can contact the SNHU Help Desk by calling 1.855.877.9919.
Get in the habit of checking your SNHU email account regularly, so you don’t miss any important info as a new incoming student. On the mySNHU home page, click on the ‘SNHU webmail’ link to access your inbox. Academic advising and residence life will use your SNHU email to connect with you in the early summer about your class schedule and campus housing assignment. You’ll also receive an email about registering for orientation this summer.
Step 2: Review your Financial Aid Award & Understand your Bill
Our goal at student financial services is to make the financial aid process as easy as possible. We partner with students and supporters to identify, educate and award the best financial resources available so that you can remain focused on your college experience.
Your financial aid award is determined by the information you and your family provided on the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). A financial aid award may consist of:
- Scholarships or grants (do not need to be repaid)
- Federal student loans (must be repaid)
- Federal work-study (must be earned)
To accept an offered Federal Direct Student Loan, you will need to complete entrance loan counseling and sign a Direct Loan Master Promissory Note, both of which can be done online at studentaid.gov. If you have not yet applied for Federal Financial Aid, please do so by visiting fafsa.gov. SNHU’s school code is 002580.
Upon reviewing your financial aid offer, you may decide to reduce or decline your federal student loans. Please complete an award change request form to reduce or decline these loans.
To learn more about payment options, please contact our office. We can guide you on how to pay your bill and/or enroll in a payment arrangement with the Tuition Management Systems (TMS).
Please note: Payment arrangements or your full first semester tuition balance are due in full by August 5, 2022.
Select Your Refund Preference Via BankMobile:
If you have a surplus in your financial aid, or from payments made to your student account, you may be due a refund. BankMobile is a resource for you to help secure your refund. You will receive allocation instructions by mail, in a green envelope.
Your options to receive the refund include:
- Deposit the funds into a current personal bank account
- Open a BankMobile VIBE Account and be issued a debit/credit card
Please note: Some Direct Parent PLUS Loans and credit card payments are not eligible for BankMobile refunds.
Complete Your Health Insurance Waiver
All SNHU, students are required to have health insurance. If you do not have coverage, you will be automatically enrolled in a plan through the university and will be billed annually for this charge. If you have private health insurance, you must complete a health insurance waiver form before January 3, 2022. The form can be obtained online through the my.SNHU student portal and must be completed annually. For questions, call 603.645.9640 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
