New England Regional Student Program (NEBHE)
Each New England state admits qualified out-of-state New England residents to its public, degree-granting, two-year colleges and institutions provided that students are eligible by either Rule 1 or Rule 2 (see below), with the reservation that priorities go to Connecticut students in the event of budget and/or space limitations.
Rule 1: The Uniqueness Rule
When a program of study is not offered at an in-state institution, a qualified student may apply for enrollment at any participating out-of-state institution offering that program of study under the Regional Student Program.
Rule 2: The Proximity Rule
When a program of study is offered under the Regional Student Program at both an in-state and out-of-state institution, and the out-of-state institution is closer in traveling time to a qualified student's legal residence, that student may apply for enrollment at that out-of-state institution. Upon admission to QVCC, qualified out-of-state students under this program pay in-state tuition plus 50 percent.
Additional information about the Regional Student Program may be obtained from the Dean Student Services at QVCC or from the New England Board of Higher Education, 45 Temple Place, Boston, MA 02111, (617) 357-9620.
