If I could identify one thing that made a difference, it would be Great Bay. I talk all the time about how much Great Bay changed my life and gave me a huge foundation. I am incredibly grateful for my time there.

CCSNH recently announced that they will be freezing tuition for the 6th year and a row.

Hear more about the importance and benefits of an affordable education from students like Patrick Ives.

"The economic benefits of starting my college education at Great Bay compared to a four-year university were important to me. I didn’t want to rack up a bunch of debt and have to worry about that while learning,” he said. “Going to Great Bay has allowed me to affordably pursue my degree while also making decisions about where I want to work after I finish my education.”

“I could get college credit while taking high school classes. That seemed like a pretty sweet deal, and something I definitely wanted to take advantage of. It helped me shave a year off my college education.” - GBCC Student Nikko Koukis

I believe that through studying for my English degree, I have become a more open-minded, sympathetic and empathetic person.
