Chadron State College Tuition Guarantee

The Nebraska State College Tuition Guarantee ensures Pell-qualified students can attend Chadron State College tuition-free. The Tuition Guarantee provides Nebraska residents, out-of-state students, and transfer students an opportunity to earn an undergraduate degree without paying for tuition.

To qualify for the Tuition Guarantee, students must:

  • Be designated as a first-time freshman or an incoming transfer student;
  • Be admitted to Chadron State College;
  • Be Pell Grant eligible as determined by the FAFSA, which should be completed on or before April 1 to receive priority consideration; and
  • Enroll in a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester, including one or more on-campus classes.

The Tuition Guarantee is renewable for up to four years as long as the student remains Pell eligible, in good academic standing, and continues as a full-time on-campus student.

Qualified new freshmen and transfer students pursuing an undergraduate degree will receive a combination of federal grants, state or private grants, institutional scholarships, or Foundation scholarships to fill any tuition gap left after the Pell Grant. The Nebraska State College Tuition Guarantee does not cover additional costs such as room and board, books, and fees. The student’s private or community scholarships will not be considered when providing support to cover tuition costs.
