*For students enrolling at a NH community college: The recipient will receive a waiver for tuition and tuition-related fees that exceed the amount of grants and scholarships awarded to the student. This means that the student will first apply grants and scholarships to the tuition cost, and any tuition balance remaining will be waived by the college.

Examples of fees NOT related to tuition would be housing, parking fine, late fee, conduct fine. Please direct questions to College Bursar's Office.
