Financial Aid

The Financial Aid Office at UNH Manchester is here to help you and your family navigate the financial aid process. We have included helpful links to tips on applying for aid, scholarship information and searches, and important deadline and code information.

If you need more information or have any questions, we are here to help you by phone, appointment or just stop by our office on the fourth floor.

Students must complete the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA) to be reviewed for financial aid at UNH.

Students must meet the following basic federal financial aid eligibility requirements:

  • Enrollment in a degree program
  • Attend classes at least half-time (6 or more credits per semester)
  • Documentation of United States citizenship or eligible non-citizen status.

  • Durham Students
    If you are a UNH Durham campus student please contact the Durham Financial Aid Office via for all financial aid questions.
  • UNH Manchester Graduate Students
    As a graduate student your financial aid is processed at the Durham campus. The Durham staff may be reached at (603) 862-3600. However, you may contact the Manchester Financial Aid Office for general questions
  • Net Price Calculator
    UNH has partnered with the College Board to offer a Net Price Calculator -- a tool that will help you determine just how affordable UNH (either the Manchester or Durham campus) may be for your family.
    The calculator will present you a sample of the kind of need-based award you may receive once you are admitted and have applied for financial aid. Please note: This tool is not intended for currently enrolled students or transfer students. It also does not indicate any merit-based financial aid a full-time incoming freshman may qualify for at UNH.
