Granite Guarantee at Keene State – Our Pledge to You

Our Pledge to Your Education

The Granite Guarantee at Keene State covers the cost of tuition for all first-time, first-year Pell Grant-eligible New Hampshire students enrolled for the first time in the 2018-19 academic year. This new program bridges the gap between a Pell-grant recipient’s total federal and state aid and the cost of in-state tuition ($11,468 for 2018-19) Qualified students must be enrolled full-time for both the Fall 2018 and the Spring 2019 semesters and meet the financial aid preferred deadline of March 1, 2018.

We expect the Granite Guarantee at Keene State will help more than 100 students in the first year.

Ongoing Support

Enrolled students will receive continued aid throughout their four years at KSC as long as they:

  • Remain at KSC for all four years
  • Remain enrolled full-time

Will you still have student loans?

Students may have federal student loans to help pay for non-tuition expenses such as fees, room and board, books and personal expenses.
