College Costs

The cost of a post-secondary education has been on the rise nationwide for several years. Between 2011 and 2012 alone, tuition in New Hampshire rose 13.1% while state contributions to higher education fell 39.4%. This rise and fall are correlated; as state funding for colleges and universities fell, they had to find other ways to keep their doors open. Raising the cost of attendance was a way for the schools to meet their financial needs.
