New 15% Tuition Discount to Support Military Families
May 3, 2021
With a mission focused on access, and a dedication to educating military students that dates back to the College’s earliest days on-site at Pease Air Force Base, Granite State College is proud to introduce a tuition savings opportunity to support military families.
Available for spouses of Active Duty, National Guard, and Reservist servicemembers, the College now offers a 15% tuition discount to military spouses admitted into an associate, bachelor’s, or master’s degree, as well as our graduate certificate programs.
According to a survey by the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, 43% of military spouses report that they aspire to pursue further education and training. This population faces an unemployment rate three times higher than civilian peers, and 33% report that they are underemployed.
“As an affordable adult-serving college that’s nationally recognized for quality, we strive to reduce financial and other barriers so our students can thrive. Granite State College faculty and staff provide expertise and care at every step along the way to help servicemembers and their families achieve their goals.”
In addition to its Military Spouse tuition savings, Granite State College offers an Active Duty Tuition Discount, participates in the Post-9/11 GI Bill® Yellow Ribbon Program, and as part of the University System of New Hampshire, has contributed to providing nearly $18M in tuition waivers for members of the New Hampshire National Guard.
