We offer several tuition waivers and discount programs that help defray the cost of tuition for specific populations of students at Granite State College.
Our Waivers and Discounts
- Undergraduate Studies Tuition Discount
We offer a reduced per-credit tuition cost for all Active Duty Servicemembers, regardless of residency status. This discount matches the benefit provided through the DoD Tuition Assistance (TA) program, so direct tuition costs are eliminated, leaving just fees and course materials.
- Active Duty Tuition Discount – Graduate Studies
Active Duty Servicemembers will receive a 15% tuition discount off of the graduate tuition rate each term (in-state or out-of-state as applicable).
Graduates of our bachelor’s degree programs are eligible for a 10% tuition discount when they apply for and are accepted into one of the following master’s degree programs:
Students returning for a second master’s degree are also eligible.
This discount applies to all courses taken through the 2019 Spring Term. If you have any questions concerning how the charges will be reflected on your bill, please contact our Student Accounts Office.
It is also the intention of the College to evaluate whether we can retain this 10% alumni discount as a regular, ongoing offering and benefit to graduates of our bachelor’s degree programs. Granite State College reserves the right to adjust base charges for tuition and fees for the 2018-19 academic year; however, it will remain the intent of the College to sustain the 10% discount against any approved charge to tuition rates for that year. Any changes will be announced as far in advance as possible; however, our course charges, fees, and regulations are subject to change without notice.
If you have any questions concerning how the charges will be reflected on your bill, please contact our Student Accounts Office.
Granite State College is approved by the NHSAA Office to administrate VA Educational Benefits for eligible students. The VA makes eligibility determinations and students that believe they may be eligible for benefits under the GI Bill® should seek determination from the VA. GI Bill® is a registered trademark of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). More information about education benefits offered by VA is available at the official U.S. government website: https://www.benefits.va.gov/gibill
The waiver amount will be updated each term to reflect any changes in the CCSNH rate. If you have any questions on how the charges will be reflected on your bill, please contact our Student Accounts Office.
We have a limited number of senior tuition waivers for those enrolling for credit. Payment of the registration fee and any lab or material fee is required. An individual may be granted no more than one waiver per term, not to exceed four per year.
