How much more money should I give me granddaughter who is graduating from college than the one who is graduating from high school?

joint party for graduation - wonder about the different amounts

I say 3 dollars more, but also be sure to include the payment book for the college grad's student loan.

Give them both the same amount. The year they graduate in money denominations.

Our gift to the one graduating from high school is bigger because we help them purchase books. The one graduating from college is now ready to start working and we feel does not have as great a need - except to pay off a loan I guess. A small gift with a personal note of encouragement should be one choice. The amount of the gift is not as important as your note acknowledging their accomplishment and your interest in their future and an offer of continuing support and interest.

The issue is they were home schooled and the oldest has studied on line for her diploma from college. We are having a family dinner out in celebration. Both want money for graduation. Since they will be together celebrating, even though I feel the college diploma earns more than high school, I do not want to hurt anyone's feelings.

You will have to decide what you can afford to give as a gift but this is my opinion, such as it is. High school graduation is an expectation that should be acknowledged. If the student did very well, give accordingly. College graduation is above and beyond. If there was special achievement acknowledge it. If you can't or don't feel right about saying it with a gift, say it or write it down. Remember an invitation is not an invoice but do acknowledge their day.

How ever many years older she is times 10 like if she's four years older give her 40 more bucks kinda expensive but most grandchildren are worth it! :)

Depends on what you can afford, but I would say the same amount, so maybe 100 for both ? Or more if you can afford it(: or any amount, they still should be very appreciative.
