Cost of Attendance and Academic Year Information

 
Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of a student’s educational expenses to maintain a moderate standard of living for the period of enrollment and is not necessarily the amount paid directly to Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU). The COA is used when calculating a student’s eligibility for financial aid only.
 
The COA includes both direct costs (tuition, fees and on-campus living expenses paid directly to SNHU if applicable) and estimated indirect costs (living, transportation and personal expenses).  SNHU uses an average to estimate educational expenses.  Below are the 2021-2022 full-time cost of attendance amounts for each group of academic programs.  The 2020-2021 amounts can be viewed on the 2020-2021 Cost of Attendance page.

*Indirect costs are estimates of amounts that a student is expected to spend on other education-related expenses while enrolled in school. Indirect costs are not paid directly to Southern New Hampshire University.
 
SNHU will also include costs, upon request and with sufficient supporting documentation, associated with:
 
      · Dependent care for periods of time that include class & study time, field work, internships etc.
      · Disability allowance for expenses related to a student’s disability
 
To request an increase for dependent care or disability-related expenses, the student must submit a letter with supporting documentation to Student Financial Services. Increases are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
