In addition to PTO, Southern New Hampshire University offers up to 11 paid holidays each calendar year, which include a combination of SNHU-observed holidays and float holidays.

If you have college-age dependents, you can also access tuition exchange programs that provide scholarship application opportunities with other schools. These programs can be highly competitive, are not guaranteed and may be subject to eligibility guidelines.
