Tuition & Fees

UNH uses an online billing system for all active students. Students view their bills and student accounts through Webcat. They also have the option of setting up Parent Portal accounts for parents and others to access their accounts. When new bills are ready, UNH sends email notifications to the student's university-assigned email address and to the email addresses of Parent Portal account holders. With the exception of financial aid, payments are applied to the oldest charge first.
