*New Hampshire Residency Status

In order to qualify for New Hampshire resident tuition rates, a student must have been a legal resident of the state for a minimum of 12 consecutive months immediately preceding the student's WMCC enrollment date (first day of classes).

Students who change legal residence to New Hampshire during their studies at WMCC must still be legal residents of New Hampshire for 12 months prior to being eligible for resident rates. Change of address does not necessarily constitute change of legal residence.

In order to begin the process of eligibility, students must provide the Admissions Office with proof of residency, such as a notarized statement, rent receipts, or utility bills, that accurately reflects the effective date of residency. A New Hampshire driver's license may not be sufficient proof of legal residency status.

**New England Regional Student Program (NERSP)
The New England Regional Student Program enables a resident of a New England state to enroll in a public college or university in the six state region at 50% above in-state tuition for certain degree programs if:

  • The program is not available in the home-state public college;
  • The out-of-state, public institution is nearer to the student's residence than the in-state institution that offers a similar certificate, professional certificate, or associate degree program.

All matriculated New England Regional Students will be charged the NERSP tuition rate for day courses.  Out of state students will pay out of state rates for day courses.  All students will be charged in-state tuition rates for evening and online courses.

Determination of eligibility is the responsibility of the Vice President of Student Affairs. NERSP students are liable for full payment of all fees.
