Beginning fall semester of 2017, UNH will eliminate tuition costs for approximately 285 incoming first year students, according to UNH Today.
According to UNH Media Relations Director Erika Mantz, this program, titled the Granite Guarantee, is overseen by the UNH Financial Aid Department and will pay the outstanding cost of tuition after merit scholarships and grants are applied. To qualify for the Granite Guarantee, students must be Pell grant recipients and have been admitted to the university’s Durham or Manchester campuses for fall 2017 as a full time, in-state student.
