The University System of New Hampshire (USNH) Board of Trustees voted to not increase the tuition of USNH schools for the sixth consecutive year, according to a USNH press release obtained by The Equinox.

This would affect the 2024- 2025 academic year.

“Amid continued inflationary, demographic and market pressures, the University System of New Hampshire remains deeply committed to maintaining its mission of providing affordable, accessible and relevant degree programs that support the New Hampshire workforce and way of life with capable graduates,” Cathy Provencher, USNH chief administrative officer and vice chancellor, stated in the release. “Holding tuition flat for this period of time is an unprecedented commitment to continue pathways to meaningful degrees for New Hampshire students.”

Additionally, across all USNH institutions, $250 million worth of aid has been distributed among attending students. Witha net average tuition and fee rate of $10,200 per year, attending USNH schools today is cheaper than in 2019.

The Equinox previously reported 90-95% of students who attend Keene State receive some form of financial aid.
