Southern N.H. Proximity

Reduced Tuition Program for Southern New Hampshire Students

UMass Lowell's Proximity Regional Rates Program offers a reduced tuition rate for graduate students living in Southern New Hampshire. This offer is based on the proximity provision of the Regional Student Program conducted by the New England Board of Higher Education. Eligibility is extended to students who are U.S citizens or Permanent Residents enrolled in a degree or certificate program.

Full-time, out-of-state graduate students who qualify for the Proximity Regional Rates Program will see their estimated total for tuition and fees be reduced by nearly $4,000.

Part-time students will have a comparable percentage reduction in their cost per credit hour.

(Note: Tuition and fees are set each year. Please confirm the latest rates).

This program was developed in response to the many highly-qualified Southern New Hampshire students seeking a world-class university education close to home.

The Proximity Regional Rate program is based on a provision of the New England Board of Higher Education Regional Student Program (NERSP). The proximity program does not change in any way the provisions and costs of the NERSP.
