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

4.11 Average Rating
Varies based on whether you live out-of-state. UNH has a regional New England Program which cuts your tuition if you're majoring in something not available in your home state.
Funmi from Harvard, MA
All I have to say is pic your classes based on the prof. and make use of ratemyprofessor.com, classes are the hardest when you have a professor you can't stand.
Bridget from Loudon, NH
The classes at UNH are challenging and worthwhile. I know few students who regularly skip class, because classes truly are enjoyable at UNH. The level of difficulty of classes, the number of clubs and organizations and the environment at UNH makes it truly worth the money.
Cara from NH
UNH costs go up year after year, and the benefits don't. But overall, the quality of education, sports enthusiasm, student clubs/organizations, dining hall food, and student job opportunities has not lessened.
Victoria from West Hartford, CT
You will get your bang for your buck if you use all of the resources on campus for your learning experience. Also there are so many fun thing to do on campus covered by your activity fee, and there is always a sporting event to go to.
Robin from Middleburg, FL
UNH is a bit more pricey than other state schools (especially out-of-state tuition), but I believe is worth the money. They offer fairly decent scholarships and financial aid to help lessen the costs.
Kimberly from Durham, NH
Even though I am paying out-of-state tuition, I never felt like I was wasting my money. If you take advantage of all the courses and activities UNH offers, it's worth it. Every college is expensive, but the quality of UNH exceeds many others.
