Bringing Dependents


If you are planning to bring family members, please consider:

  • It can be very costly to support your dependents ($8,000 - $10,000 per dependent/per year).
  • You will need to make housing arrangements prior to arrival.  (Note: There is no on-campus housing for families.)
  • School-age children (ages 6 to 18) are required to attend school. You will need to provide their official birth certificates, school records, complete medical history and immunization records. IMPORTANT: See immunization requirements for NH Schools.
  • Childcare centers (for younger children or after-school care) are expensive and usually have a waiting list. It may not be possible to find a center to take care of your child immediately.
  • Health insurance is required for all J-2 dependents.
