The University of New Hampshire assesses mandatory fees to support expenses associated with participation in an academic community. Mandatory fees are defined as fees that all students are assessed as a prerequisite for registration unless specifically exempt. Mandatory fees are assessed because the services made available through such fees benefit the overall educational experience of students, including academic, co-curricular, health and safety-related and recreational. It is recognized that not all students will use the benefits and privileges made available by fee-supported activities to an equal extent. The services and facilities supported by mandatory fees are available to all students. They are not charged based on the extent of students’ usage of the facilities or services supported by the fees.
Enrollment Fee Payment
Newly admitted fall semester freshman and transfer students are required to submit a $200 enrollment fee payment to reserve a space in the incoming class. Enrollment fee payments are credited as deposits against fall semester tuition bills and are non-refundable.
Students who do not submit enrollment fee payments by the appropriate deadlines are subject to the cancellation of their admissions. No assurances are possible regarding reinstatement of an admission offer that has been canceled as a result of a missed enrollment fee payment.
Admin. Fee/New Admits
The new student administrative fee supports First Year Experience initiatives, transfer student programming and related undergraduate initiatives to support new students’ transition and success. The fee will be assessed once for new admits at the rate of $200 and is non-refundable.
The University of New Hampshire requires health insurance as a condition of enrollment for full-time degree students at its Durham and Manchester campuses. Students will have the option of waiving this requirement if they present proof of adequate coverage; alternatively, students can acquire an affordable health benefits plan sponsored by the university.
