New England Regional Student Program (NERSP) costs are less than out-of-state costs. Visit The Solution Center for specific information regarding tuition and fees.
NERSP-Qualifying Programs are those not offered on public campuses in a student’s home state.
Also known as the Tuition Break, NERSP is coordinated by the New England Board of Higher Education. At UMass Lowell, many of the qualifying programs are nationally recognized.
- No additional application is required, but you must indicate your interest in NERSP on the application.
- You must enroll in a qualified degree program and meet regular admissions criteria.
- You will be notified by the UMass Lowell Admissions Office if you are granted NERSP status.
- Students accepted into NERSP are still eligible to apply for financial aid through other sources.
