Financing Your Education


Estimated 2013 – 2014 Tuition & Fees are subject to change.  The University System of New Hampshire Board of Trustees typically adjust tuition & fees each year late in June or early in July.


All students admitted into a master’s, post-master’s, or post-baccalaureate program are eligible to apply for financial assistance, whether they are enrolled full-time or part-time.  Full-time and part-time enrollment status for fall, spring, and summer is determined by the number of credits registered for each term.

Master’s and Post-Master’s programs:

  • zero to 4 credits in a term = no eligibility for financial aid
  • 5 to 8 credits in a term = part-time eligibility
  • 9 or more credits in a term = full-time eligibility

Post-Baccalaureate (undergraduate level)

  • zero to 5 credits in a term = no eligibility for financial aid
  • 6 to 11 credits in a term = part-time eligibility
  • 12 or more credits in a term = full-time eligibility

Requests for financial aid are evaluated after KSC receives results from your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and you have been admitted into an approved program.  Please do not wait until you are admitted into a ‘graduate’ program before completing the FAFSA and forwarding results to KSC.  Complete all requirements by March 1 and you will receive priority treatment by KSC.  If your academic program requires summer course work it is your responsibility to bring this to the attention of a financial aid counselor to determine if you are eligible to receive financial aid during the summer.  Please visit Student Accounts at Keene State College for information regarding
