The Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH) announced a tuition increase of $5 per credit for the next academic year. In-state tuition will be $645 for a three-credit course.
CCSNH says the increase will be offset by more scholarships and grants. They also note that overall tuition has increased by only 2.4% over the past seven years, much less than increases in other states.
However, New Hampshire community colleges still have some of the highest tuition in the United States. According to one ranking, New Hampshire has the fourth highest in-state community college tuition in the U.S.
