UMass Lowell cuts tuition for southern N.H. Residents.
Under the new "proximity regional rate," southern New Hampshire undergraduate students can attend UMass Lowell for $14,173 a year in tuition and fees, compared to the regular out-of-state cost of $20,559 (based on 2007-2008 rates). The $6,386 savings goes into effect for the fall 2008 semester.
The proximity rate also applies to graduate students. At 2007-2008 rates, a New Hampshire graduate student taking nine credits (considered full time) would have paid $8,231 per semester. Those eligible for the new discount would pay $6,246 per semester.
The discount is available to residents of Nashua, Salem, Derry, Londonderry, Hudson, Merrimack, Pelham, Atkinson, Windham, Hollis, Brookline and Litchfield.
Students who participate in the new rate program must be commuters for their first semester, but then are eligible to apply for on-campus housing.
All New Hampshire residents may be eligible for discounted tuition at UMass Lowell through the existing New England Regional Student Program. Offered through the New England Board of Higher Education, that program is open to students in qualified majors including community health education, meteorology, music business, education, nuclear engineering, plastics engineering, radiological health physics and sound recording technology.
