We require that all first and second-year, full-time (i.e., students with 12 or more credits), BFA students live on-campus. This requirement may be waived for students who:

  • Live at and commute from a parent’s/legal guardian’s (defined as the person(s) who is named and whose financial information appears on the student’s completed FAFSA) home address that is less than 50 miles from from the Manchester campus (based on Google Maps);
  • Will be 21 years or older at the start of the upcoming semester;
  • Transfer 30 or more college credits and/or;
  • Are married, in a civil union, have a domestic partner, or are the primary care-giver for a child at the start of the upcoming semester.

We are eager to foster a vibrant residential experience for our new students and believes that residence hall living offers an invaluable component of the overall art school experience. Living in the Residence Halls allows students the freedom to focus primarily on their course of study. We believe strongly that living on campus releases a student from the stress of commuting, monthly financial and roommate issues, safety concerns, and also allows them to participate in the creative community on campus.

** The Housing Damage Deposit (for resident students only) is assessed only once and will be refunded to the student, less any damage to the property, at graduation or when they move off campus.

Students enrolled in more than 18 credits per semester will be assessed an Overload Charge of $1,200 per credit.

To apply for financial aid, complete the FAFSA at www.fafsa.ed.gov. NEC’s school code is 002579. Need-based tuition and housing grants are available to students who qualify. Visit our financial aid page for more information.

We offer a payment plan option for all students at nec.afford.com.

Tuition and fees are subject to change.

Return of Federal Financial Aid (Title IV)       

Students who withdraw before 60% of the term is completed will have their eligible federal financial aid recalculated according to the length of their enrollment. The percentage of time the student remained enrolled is the percentage of eligible aid for that period that the student earned. A student who remains enrolled beyond the 60% point earns all federal aid for that period. The Return of Federal Financial Aid calculation is performed independently of institutional costs incurred for the period of enrollment.

 

Return of Unearned Military Tuition Assistance

Students who withdraw before 60% of the term is completed will have their eligible tuition assistance recalculated according to the length of their enrollment. The percentage of time the student remained enrolled is the percentage of eligible tuition assistance for that period that the student earned. A student who remains enrolled beyond the 60% point earns all tuition assistance for that period. The Return of Unearned Tuition Assistance calculation is performed independently of institutional costs incurred for the period of enrollment. Unearned assistance is refunded to the Military Service. Funds are remitted within approximately forty-five days of a withdrawal. If a Service member withdraws due to a military service obligation, the tuition may be waived provided the Service member submits the appropriate documentation to the Student Financial Services Office upon withdrawal.
