“That’s not unique to (Mount Washington College),” he said. “It’s down nationally 5 or 6 percent.”

He said the school remains economically viable to its full- and part-time students, many who work full-time time jobs while earning their degree. Tuition is approximately $6,000 a year, compared to $8,600 for in-state schools and $22,000 for out-of-state schools, he said.

The school changed its name in June to appeal to a broader spectrum of students.

White said he expects many of the nearly 400 students from the Portsmouth and Concord campuses to stay with the college and not transfer to other nearby schools.

One of those schools is Southern New Hampshire University, which has several campuses in the Granite State, including Salem and Portsmouth.

SNHU spokesman Gregg Mazzola said the university has yet to hear from Mount Washington students, but he expects it will soon.

“These students are getting their house in order to decide what to do next,” he said. “I’m sure we will have a lot of inquiries.”
