Tuition discounts for New England families
If you're the parent of a high school junior or sophomore, you've likely started thinking ahead to college costs. Knowledge is power, and it's important to start getting educated on the college price tag and the different resources available to help reduce that cost. As a New England family, you'll want to make sure you're informed about a valuable program from the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) called Tuition Break.
Tuition Break, the New England Regional Student Program (RSP), allows students from New England to receive a discount on out-of-state tuition at New England public colleges and universities for select majors not available in a student's home state. There are 700 majors covered within the Tuition Break program, and New England, officially comprised of Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont, has 82 public colleges and universities for students to consider.
Students save on average $7,200 annually through Tuition Break, and over 9,500 students participated in the program last year. A separate application is not required. For full details on the Tuition Break program, including a listing of approved majors, visit NEBHE's Tuition Break website.
