What is the New England Regional Student Program (NERSP)?
NERSP is a tuition program for out-of-state students with a permanent address in New England. It’s administered by the New England Board of Higher Education, and lowers the overall cost of out-of-state tuition by approximately $6,500. Beginning in the fall of 2019, UMass Lowell will offer the NERSP discount to all New England residents enrolled in any full-time undergraduate degree program.
