“Military Friendly” is not just a catch phrase. We are committed to helping our military and veteran students be successful inside and outside of the classroom.
1. We Maximize Your Tuition Benefits
All of our degree programs are approved for VA education benefit programs including the Post 9/11 GI Bill®. In addition, we participate in the Yellow Ribbon Program and among our military benefits, we now offers an Active Duty Tuition Discount, regardless of residency status.
2. We Honor Your Credit
We accept credit recommendations from the American Council of Education (ACE) for training for all branches of the military. Each student is awarded four credits for basic training and is eligible for additional credits, which are assessed based on the student’s choice of degree, military service, training experience, and any other college credits that you have earned prior to Granite State College.
