The Granite GuaranteeThe Granite Guarantee is a financial aid program through the receiving four-year program that makes college possible for qualified first-year and transfer New Hampshire students by covering the cost of tuition for up to four years. Yes, you heard us! The program that guarantees New Hampshire students who receive federal Pell Grants pay no tuition to attend UNH, Keene State, or Plymouth State University is now for students who transfer directly from Nashua Community College.

Here’s How You Qualify

You’re a New Hampshire resident

You’re entering your first year of college OR immediately transferring as a CCSNH graduate

You’re eligible for a federal Pell Grant

If you meet these criteria, you’ll automatically receive the Granite Guarantee. The financial aid program remains in place for four years provided you’re enrolled full-time, remain income-eligible and make satisfactory progress toward your degree.

Are You Ready To Get Started?

No special application is needed. You’re just four easy steps from up to four years tuition-free.
