The University of New Hampshire is expanding its free tuition program.

The program, called Granite Guarantee, offers free tuition to New Hampshire students whose family income makes them eligible for federal pell grants.

Granite Guarantee has been in place at UNH for two years; 800 freshmen have used it so far.

Now, for the first time, New Hampshire community college students transferring into UNH to complete their Bachelor’s degree, are eligible for Granite Guarantee.

Community college students interested in Granite Guarantee for the Spring semester must apply to transfer to UNH by November 15th.
