Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.64 Average Rating
classes online are easy and short. very worth it.
Ashley from Lexington Park, MD
SNHU is worth the cost. I highly value my education here.
Mallory from Gorham, NH
They are reasonably priced for a college. All of my credits transferred from my community college classes. I was happy that they work so well with transferring credits from other schools
Taylor from Champaign, IL
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!
Kaitlyn from Hillsborough, NH
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.
Joshua from Emporia, KS
SNHU is defiantly a school where you get more Bang for The Buck. With SNHU being a Non Profit, Private Collage, the classes are smaller, the education with your professors is more closely with a one on one, where they are available daily to email, video conference, School Chat Conference with you on any of your needs. Tuition, is HALF that of traditional Universities, public universities rang from 40,000 to 70,000 a year, with SNHU, the cost of one year is about 28,000, with financial aid, and grants, and scholarships, that puts most people at around 5,000 to 10,000 in actual tuition! And the education you receive is beyond top ranked. From Admissions, to Graduation, SOMEONE is always by your side to answer your questions and help you every step!!
Leaha from Texas
I've been to 3 online schools and this is by far the most professional, helpful, and least expensive.
