About JSC's Tuition Discounts

Johnson State College participates in two programs that offer a reduced tuition rate to eligible out-of-state students: The Good Neighbor Award and the New England Award. Students eligible for either award save more than 30% on the out-of-state tuition rate. For the 2016-17 academic year, that translates into a savings of $7,344 a year, or $29,376 over four years!

Once enrolled at JSC, students who receive either award will receive the discounted rate for up to eight semesters, as long as they maintain continuous, full-time enrollment and remain in “good academic standing” as defined in the JSC catalog. (Note: A student may receive only one of these awards; if eligible for both, students receive the award with the higher value.)

The Good Neighbor Award

Good discounts make good neighbors! The Good Neighbor Award provides the tuition discount to undergraduate students from:

  • Canada (all provinces)
  • New York State
  • Eligible New Hampshire Counties: Belknap, Carroll, Cheshire, Coos, Grafton, Sullivan
  • Eligible Massachusetts Counties: Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire, Hampden

The New England Award

The New England Award provides the same discount to students from specific states enrolled in specific majors, as noted below. These majors and the associated home states are determined by the New England Board of Higher Education. The most recent list of eligible majors and the home-state requirements for each follows.
