    You should check our University of Massachusetts @ Boston It offers Doctor's, Master's, Bachelor's

    Based on some information I found:

    Undergrad Application Fee: $40.00

    Year Prices: In-state:$4,227

    Total Enrollment: 13346

  • 4 year or 2 year schools?

    There are many good community colleges in the Mass and NH area. My daughter went to Hesser College in Manchester, NH and that was reasonable.

    Check out the state colleges in Mass and NH (UMass Lowell is a good school for example). They are much cheaper than private schools.

    Another school to check out is Southern NH University (SNHU).

    state schools are your best bet. There several of them. And being a resident of the state gives u a huge discount as well.
