Tuition And Fees

STATEMENT ON TUITION:

Great Bay Community College makes every effort to maintain an affordable tuition rate for our students. Since 2012, we have held tuition flat, and even lowered it for the 2014-15 academic year. The result has been five years without a tuition increase.  

However, in order to continue to provide outstanding educational opportunities for our students, it is necessary to increase the rate of tuition for the upcoming academic year – again, the first increase since 2012.  Tuition for the 2017-18 academic year is $210 per credit (plus applicable fees) for in-state students.*  For students who have already registered and been billed at last year’s rate, Great Bay Community College will update the amount due in the Student Information System (SIS).  Please log in to SIS and view your updated account.  If you have questions, contact the Bursar’s Office at 603-427-7600 x7526 or GBCCBusinessOffice@ccsnh.edu  for more information.
