Granite Guarantee at Keene State
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 2020-21 academic year. This program bridges the gap between a Pell-grant recipient’s total federal and state aid and the cost of in-state tuition ($11,754 for 2019-20). Qualified students must be enrolled full-time for both the Fall 2020 and the Spring 2021 semesters and meet the financial aid priority deadline of March 1, 2020.
There Is No Special Application or Extra Steps
All you have to do is:
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
- Remain Pell-eligible
- Continue making satisfactory academic progress toward a degree
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.
