Cost of Attendance and Academic Year Information

 
Cost of Attendance (COA) is an estimate of the student’s educational expenses to maintain a reasonable/moderate standard of living for period of enrollment and is not 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 indirect costs (living, transportation and personal expenses) costs. SNHU uses an average to estimate educational expenses.  Below are the 2016-2017 full-time cost of attendance based on program.

*Indirect costs are estimates of amounts that a student is expected to spend on other educational 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 the student’s disability
To request an increase for dependent care or disability related expenses, the student must submit a letter with supporting documentation to the One Stop . Increases are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
