Keeping tuition rates low is just the beginning. At Southern New Hampshire University, we’re committed to helping you understand all the ways you can get more from your education—for less money.

SNHU offers some of the lowest online tuition rates in the nation—and we haven’t raised our rates in over a decade.

We recently cut our campus tuition in half to make the traditional college experience more affordable.

What SNHU Students are Saying

Estimate Your Costs Through SNHU’s Net Price Calculator

To get a better understanding of what your education may cost, SNHU has provided you with a Net Price Calculator, a tool that can help you estimate eligibility for financial aid and total annual cost of attending SNHU.

Of course, the best way to find out your cost of attendance is to speak with a member of our Student Financial Services team. They can walk you through the process, answering any questions you may have.

Our SFS counselors keep your finances in mind. If you need to use loans to finance your education, our team can coach you on best practices for borrowing.

Here's what you need to know before starting:

  • This should take you between 5-15 minutes (and less time for graduate students)
  • Documents and information you'll want to have on hand include:
    • Your most recent federal tax return (or – if you are a dependent student – your parents' most recent federal tax return)
    • Records of any untaxed income you or your family may have received
    • Your current bank statements and investment records, or a good estimate of your assets (for financial aid purposes, your assets do not include your home)
    • An estimate of the number of credits you think might transfer into SNHU, if any
  • When you've completed all the fields, you can choose to have an admission counselor get in touch with you by entering your contact information. (This is optional.)
  • You can also choose to have the results emailed to you. But you don't need to enter your email address to get your results; they will still be made available to you at the end of the survey.

Keep in mind when you compare costs at colleges that each institution may calculate your investment differently. Some may give you an annual cost, while others may break it down by term.
