Governor Announces $6M in Tuition Assistance for NH Community College Students

Posted: July 21, 2020

Eligible students may receive grants to meet tuition and fees at NH’s community colleges for the Fall semester, thanks to funding announced by Gov. Chris Sununu on July 16, 2020.

In order to be eligible, students must show a financial impact related to COVID-19, such as a reduction in household income or increased expenses not otherwise offset. Funding will be available for current and new MCC students. Complete details and the tuition assistance application form are available at

“New Hampshire’s Community Colleges prepare students for in-demand careers and offer a local, convenient and high-quality foundation for continued postsecondary education,” said CCSNH Interim Chancellor Susan Huard. “I encourage New Hampshire residents to take advantage of the exceptional opportunities right in their communities. This funding is designed to ensure students do not lose their momentum as they or their households may be impacted by COVID-19. This is an ideal time to learn close to home at community colleges that are highly attuned to community needs.”

As part of the application process, current students and prospective students will need to:

  1. Complete a FAFSA if they have not already done so.
  2. Submit documentation that demonstrates financial hardship due to COVID, such as a reduction in income or an increase in household expenses. (Additional guidance on appropriate documentation may be found in the application.)
  3. If not already registered for the Fall semester, register now

As of August 20th, $362,772 has been awarded to 141 MCC students through this tuition grant program.
