Requirements for In-State Tuition

It is hard to earn New Hampshire in-state tuition status. Some strict financial requirements typically require a year of full-time employment in New Hampshire and no school. The gap year can be taken before or after the freshman year.

There are few public universities in New Hampshire. Each has its interpretations, policies, and implementations of state laws. New Hampshire is an Academic Common Market member with a limited reciprocity agreement among the select Southern States members.

Although many restrictions apply, favorable college tuition rates are sometimes possible in nearby states. The degree a student wants to obtain cannot be offered in his or her home state, and the student remains a resident of the home state. Each institution and state can apply additional requirements, limits, or withdraw from participation in the program. There is a similar New England Board of Higher Education's Tuition Break program.
