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:
Recognizing the High Value of Your Military Experience
We accept credit recommendations from the American Council on Education (ACE) for training for all branches; hundreds of MOS ratings and military courses for specialized content. Beyond ACE, 84% of our students can demonstrate college-level knowledge and competencies before they have taken their first course.
Offering 8 Opportunities Each Year to Start Your Coursework
With four term starts and 6-week intensives, our open admissions policy means you can make progress toward your degree at your pace, with guidance from your college advisor.
Active Duty Tuition Discount
Active Duty Tuition Discounts are automatically applied to students’ tuition bill after we process the TA benefit. As long as you are eligible for TA funding, we will offer the discount for the entirety of your program, regardless of whether or not you reach the TA annual limit (16 credits or $4,500).
Community College of the Airforce (CCAF)
Granite State College partners with the CCAF to help airmen meet their college education goals.
General Education Mobile Program (GEM)
We are an official GEM institution. If you’re an enlisted Airman pursuing an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) through CCAF, you can fulfill their general education requirements with online courses at Granite State.

The AU-ABC partnership between Air University and Granite State College allows you to apply your CCAF Associate in Applied Science toward one of our bachelor’s degree.
