More Than Just a Catch Phrase
For all of us at Granite State, “Military friendly” means dedicated professionals college-wide helping you be successful by:
Credit for Your Training
We award the maximum credit for your military training based on American Council on Education (ACE) recommendations and guarantee at least 64 credits to transfer from CCAF. We also offer other options that let you demonstrate college-level learning, such as workplace training and equivalency tests (DANTES, CLEP).
Active Duty Tuition Discount
We cap our undergraduate tuition rate at $250/credit so it matches the DoD Tuition Assistance (TA) Program. Graduate students receive a 15% discount on their cost per credit. Learn More!
