Financial Aid

To apply for financial aid, one must go to the Financial Aid Office in Stoke Hall.  Financial aid is usually based on need (family income), which is determined after review of one's family financial form.  Financial aid comes in many forms.  Some financial aid must be paid back (loans) while other aid does not have to be repaid (grants).  Answers to all your financial aid questions can be found at https://www.unh.edu/financialaid
