Community College System of New Hampshire Tuition and Fees: Academic Year 2018 – 2019

Tuition Rates

In addition to having the lowest college tuition in New Hampshire, The Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) strives to make college affordable through scholarships and loans. Our affiliated Foundation provides scholarship assistance to eligible students enrolled at any College within the system, and each College offers financial aid in the forms of grant aid, work study, and loans.

CCSNH charges the following tuition rates for academic year 2018 – 2019:

  In-State and all online courses

  New England Regional*

  Out-of-State / International

  $215 per credit hour

  $323 per credit hour

  $490 per credit hour

As an example, an Associate in Arts program is a minimum of 60 credit hours. Therefore, the total cost of the two-year program is 60 X $215, or $12,900 over two years – $3,225 per semester. This calculation does not take into account financial aid that may be awarded, nor does it include fees or credits that may be required above 60 credit hours.

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

Tuition Discounts

In addition to financial aid and scholarships, CCSNH offers discounts for many people. These include:

  • Students who live within fifty miles of a College but live out-of-state may be eligible to pay the in-state rate instead of New England Regional. Contact your College’s Business Office to learn more.
  • CCSNH charges dual enrollment students in our Early College program half-price tuition
  • Dual-credit students taught in NH high schools as part of the Running Start program pay only $150 per course (prorated for courses fewer than three credit hours).

For information on financal aid and scholarships, call your college’s Financial Aid Office.
