Southern New Hampshire University has announced it will freeze tuition for the next academic year.
The freeze applies to SNHU’s online degree program as well as its on-campus undergraduate program.
The current sticker price for an undergraduate student living on campus at SNHU is currently around $44,000.
This marks the fifth year without a tuition increase at the private university.
Typical annual increases at other private universities have been around three percent in recent years.
The move comes as SNHU is rapidly expanding its campus, with at least 5 new buildings planned.
Meanwhile the state’s public community college and university systems have both asked lawmakers for increases in their budgets to implement tuition freezes of their own.
