NE Tuition Break Program

What is Tuition Break?
The New England Board of Higher Education's Regional Student Program (RSP). Tuition Break enables eligible students to be charged a tuition rate that is significantly lower than the regular out-of-state tuition rate.

Tuition rates and savings vary by institution and are posted on NEBHE's website. The current average annual savings for a full time student is $8,000.

How to be eligible
Connecticut residents are eligible for degree programs that are not offered by Connecticut's public colleges or universities, and are offered through Tuition Break by public colleges and universities in the other five New England states.

How to apply

  • Select a college that offers a degree program approved through the RSP Tuition Break.
  • Complete the college's admissions application and declare an RSP Tuition Break degree program as the intended major.
  • Once accepted to the college, confirm with admissions that the college has granted RSP Tuition Break status.
