CCV to offer in-state tuition to residents of neighboring states

Students in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York counties that border Vermont will be eligible

The Community College of Vermont (CCV) announced at the end of April that residents of certain counties in New Hampshire, Massachusetts and New York will be eligible for in-state tuition rates beginning in the fall 2016 semester. The new program will apply to all students who live in Cheshire, Sullivan, Grafton and Coos counties in New Hampshire, Franklin and Berkshire counties in Massachusetts and Washington and Rensselaer counties in New York. This program will expand educational opportunities for many people who already frequent Vermont for culture and commerce.

“At CCV, our academic programs and support services are designed to prepare students to achieve both career and life goals,” said CCV President Joyce Judy. “By offering students in neighboring states the same tuition rates that Vermonters pay, more people will be able to benefit from our diverse courses, open admissions, and the opportunities that come with a CCV degree. We are thrilled to announce this new program and to continue our efforts to help students overcome barriers to higher education and reduce the financial burden of a college degree.”

The reduced tuition rates for New Hampshire and Massachusetts are offered through the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) Tuition Break program and for New York through the Good Neighbor policy approved by the Vermont State Colleges board of trustees. Six of CCV’s 12 academic centers are located in communities close to these border regions, including Brattleboro, Upper Valley, Bennington, Springfield, Rutland, and St. Johnsbury.

For the 2016-2017 academic year, the in-state tuition rate will be $253 per credit, making most classes a total of $759. CCV is an open admission college with no application fee. For more information, prospective students should contact their closest CCV academic center, location and contact information available at ccv.edu/find.
