Student Loans for University of New Hampshire Students

About University of New Hampshire

New Hampshire StudentsLocated in the small town of Dover, New Hampshire (14,600 pop.), UNH’s flagship school offers a premier education to about 12,200 undergraduate students in a traditional New England setting. Founded in 1866, the school’s somewhat coastal location and sea-grant status has encouraged a great deal of emphasis on its marine biology and oceanography programs; in fact, UNH operates the Shoals Marine Lab, located on the Isle of Shoals off the coast of Portsmouth, jointly with Cornell University. Hockey is big at UNH, as it is at most schools in northern New England, with the UNH Wildcats competing against UMaine, UMass, UVM, and other regional and national powerhouses in the Hockey East conference. All told, UNH is a pretty great place.

If you’re receiving UNH financial aid, which about 3/4ths of students at UNH do, then you absolutely, must, without exception take care about saving your money. The occasional trip into Portsmouth with friends is acceptable, as long as you don’t break the bank. Buying food and drinks at hockey games will happen too, and that’s okay as long as you leave room in your budget for it.

UNH Student Loans

UNH loansEvery financial aid package will include some mix of grants, loans, scholarships, and work-study programs, and this is what you’ll see from UNH. Most students will be satisfied with their UNH financial aid packages, and about 63% will accept the federal student loans included therein. For the majority of UNH students, that will do it as far as covering the cost of attendance goes, but for some, more money is a necessity in order to be able to attend UNH. For students in this sort of situation, taking out a private student loan, with a cosigner’s support, is often the best way of obtaining additional funding. Make sure you’ve exhausted all forms of aid before taking out a private student loan, but if you’re ready, use our student loan comparison tool on this page to find and apply for the best loan for you.
