NH’s Community Colleges are presently accepting registrations for the Fall 2017 semester, and billing at the 2016 academic year rate of $200 per credit (plus applicable fees) for in-state students*. CCSNH sets tuition after the State of NH budget is passed, at the end of June.  In early July, there may be a change in the tuition rate for the 2017-18 academic year, including the upcoming Fall semester.  Should tuition rates or fees change, we will update all bills to reflect the new rates and will make them available via the Student Information System (SIS).

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and encourage you to log-in to SIS and monitor their charges and financial aid packages throughout the summer months.  If you have questions, contact the Admissions Office at your community college for more information.

*The current year (2016) rates for non-NH students is as follows:  NE Regional Student Program:  $300/credit.  Out-of-State and International students:  $455/credit.


Note: All online courses are offered to all students at the rate for NH residents

Although costs will vary, below are sample in-state costs (tuition only) based on two semesters:

  • Minimum full-time attendance (12 credits per semester): 24 credits x $200 = $4,800 plus applicable fees
  • Above minimum full-time attendance (15 credits per semester): 30 credits x $200 = $6,000 plus applicable fees

In addition to having the lowest college tuition in New Hampshire, the Community College System strives to make college affordable through scholarships and loans. The NH Community Colleges Foundation provides scholarship assistance to eligible students enrolled at any college within the system. Financial aid in the form of student loans and work-study is handled through the Admissions/Financial Aid office on each campus.

*The New England Regional Student Program is available through the New England Board of Higher Education (
