Information on programs offered by some colleges under the Flexible Policy
The Flexible Programs Policy option is another way for students to be eligible through NEBHE’s Tuition Break, the Regional Student Program (RSP), at certain colleges and universities. The Flexible option, which was approved in 2018 for enrollment starting in the 2019-20 academic year, allows four-year institutions to offer any program to residents of other New England states. The community colleges have had this option since 1972.
Flexible programs are flagged with [F] in the program lists.
