UMass Lowell cuts tuition for southern N.H. Residents.

The University of Massachusetts Lowell UMass Lowell was named the University of Lowell from 1975 to 1991, and was created from the merger of the Lowell Technological Institute and Lowell State College in 1975. These colleges in turn were originally named the Lowell Textile School, founded in 1895 to train technicians and  has unveiled a discount tuition plan for residents of a dozen communities in southern New Hampshire New Hampshire, one of the New England states of the NE United States. It is bordered by Massachusetts (S), Vermont, with the Connecticut R. forming the boundary (W), the Canadian province of Quebec (NW), and Maine and a short strip of the Atlantic Ocean (E). .

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 Noun 1. Pelham - a bit with a bar mouthpiece that is designed to combine a curb and snaffle
