Tuition Costs and Financial Assistance
To view tuition for all programs, please visit the UNH Business Services page here.
Currently, our program offers no funding. Especially in comparison with other Graduate Analytics programs, our programs are an exceptional value.
At this time, there is one scholarship for existing students which is in the health specialization cluster, and is awarded during the 2nd semester. Learn more about this scholarship here.
Domestic students can work with the UNH Financial Aid Office to determine sources of loan assistance. Job opportunities for existing students may be found on the Wildcat Careers website.
Funding for international students is limited at UNH. The Office of International Students & Scholars is a great resource for international students. This office supports applicants/students by assisting with the Estimate of Annual Expenses.
For admission to the programs, there is no requirement of the knowledge of statistical terms, although in order for students to feel confident in the quantitative courses, the following recommendations should be considered:
- Know the difference between the terms like probability, inferential statistics, and predictive modeling
