All nursing students taking clinical courses will be charged a nursing clinical surcharge of $500 per semester. This surcharge is designed to assist in covering the increased expenses associated with clinical classes. This fee is in addition to the academic instruction fee and comprehensive fee.

Tuition is due two weeks prior to the start of the semester and can be paid in the Business Office, by mail, or online by accessing QuickPay through the Student Information System (SIS) at .

When tuition is not fully covered by financial aid and/or a payment plan, it is the student’s responsibility to pay the difference two weeks prior to the start of classes. 

Students who have not accepted their financial aid, established a payment plan, or paid in full two weeks prior to the start of classes could be in jeopardy of being deregistered from classes.

Students will not receive bills in the mail; all billing statements will be viewable in the Student Information System (SIS). Students will receive an e-mail notification (sent to their @students.ccsnh.edu e-mail address) advising them that their current billing statement is available for viewing on the SIS. The statements can be printed or downloaded to PDF format. After viewing their statements online; students may choose to pay online, via phone 603.578.8902 or by visiting the Business Office. If the student would like someone else to receive or pay the bill, the student must designate this person as an “Authorized Payer”.

To assist students with tuition charges, the College offers an interest-free monthly payment plan administered by Nelnet Business Solutions. The plan allows students to fulfill their financial obligation to the College by automatic electronic processing of installment payments. There is a per semester enrollment fee for this program. More information can be obtained from the Business Office or on our website by accessing the “Pay for College” tab.

The following collection clause will be listed on all forms requiring the student’s signature:
“I agree that by registering for courses within the Community College System of New Hampshire (CCSNH), I am financially obligated for ALL costs related to the registered course(s). Upon a drop or withdrawal, I agree that I will be responsible for all charges as noted in the student catalog and handbook. I further understand that if I do not make payment in full, my account may be reported to the credit bureau and/or turned over to an outside collection agency. I also agree to pay for the fees of any collection agency, which may be based on a percentage of the debt up to a maximum of 35%, and all additional costs and expenses, including any protested check fees, court filing costs and reasonable attorney’s fees, which will add significant costs to my account balance.”

Students who officially withdraw from the College or an individual course by the end of the fourteenth (14th) calendar day of the semester will receive a 100% refund of tuition, less non-refundable fees. Classes that meet in a shorter format than the traditional semester will have 7 calendar days from the designated start of the alternative semester to withdraw for a full refund. If the seventh (7th) or fourteenth (14th) calendar day falls on a weekend or holiday, the drop refund date will be the first business day following the holiday or weekend. Exception: Students in courses that meet for two weeks or fewer must drop by the end of the first day of the class in order to get a 100% refund. All refunds require that students complete an official withdrawal form.

Students registered for non-credit workshops must withdraw in writing at least three days prior to the first workshop session to receive a full refund of tuition and fees. In extenuating circumstances, the President (or designee) is authorized to offer alternative compensation in the form of tuition credits to students on a case-by-case basis. Tuition credit on a student account must be used within one calendar year from the date of authorization.

In accordance with Federal regulations, refunds for an amount less than $1 ($0.99 or less) will be forfeited.

Where the employer, the Veterans Administration, or other agency is guaranteeing both tuition and fees, such guarantee must be in writing and signed by an authorized representative of the company or agency.
