    The classes are roughly $920 per term for one, which is three credits. Keeping in mind the cost for textbooks can range to $86 for Pearson Labs, it's a pretty affordable college.

    Absolutely worth every penny. It's about 50% more than what my community college was per credit, but I prefer it at SNHU. The online classes let me live my life and not have to re-arrange everything around my college schedule 2-3 times per year. Being able to control my learning environment has even allowed me to increase my GPA- I'm doing better online than I was in a classroom!

    Southern New Hampshire University is a bit on the expensive side. I have found that the quality of education as well as the experiences through SNHU have made it worth the higher price and given me a great foundation for my career.

    You're definitely getting what you pay for. The school is cheap and accepting. You earn credits through hard work like any other school, but let's face it, it's not Harvard.
