Getting Started with Your Financing
Create a plan with our Financial Services team.
Once you’ve decided on a program, you will need to work directly with a Financial Aid Specialist to create a plan customized to your financial needs.
You’re not alone in this process and we’ll help you understand the importance of smart borrowing habits. In many cases, you may qualify for more money in loans than you need to pay for your program. But any money borrowed must be paid back with interest. By borrowing only what you need for tuition and other fees, you can make sure you have the lowest loan payment possible once you graduate.
You can find information about applying for financial aid or other payment options on our website.

How much will you pay in tuition?
Estimate your costs using Southern New Hampshire University’s Net Price Calculator
With your Kenzie Academy program, you have options for covering tuition, including federal student aid such as grants and loans. So, what will your tuition be if you use federal financial aid? SNHU’s Net Price Calculator helps you estimate eligibility for financial aid and your total cost of program attendance.
How to prepare:
Calculating your costs can take 5 to 15 minutes. You’ll want to gather the following prior to starting:
- Last year’s income
- Last year’s federal tax return — or your parents’ last year’s federal tax return if you are a dependent
- Records of any untaxed income you (or your family) may have received
- Current bank statements and investment records — or an estimate of your assets for financial aid purposes (assets do not include your home)
Once you’ve completed the steps, you may choose to enter your contact information and an Admissions Counselor will get in touch with you.
Your results are available to you at the end of the survey. You also have the option to have these emailed to you.
(Please keep in mind, a Financial Aid Specialist will ultimately help you determine the best way to finance your education based on your needs and situation and walk you through the financing process.)
