Thousands of Granite State high school students will save $50 when they apply to the University of New Hampshire for fall 2017 in celebration of the flagship public research university’s 150th anniversary. All undergraduate and transfer applicants to Durham and Manchester by Nov. 15, 2016, will have the full application fee waived.

“UNH is committed to New Hampshire students and we offer a fantastic undergraduate experience,” said Victoria Dutcher, vice president of enrollment management at UNH. “We hope the application fee waiver encourages even more New Hampshire students and families to apply to UNH for next fall.”

“This is great news for our students and their families,” said Sally Thorn, director of school counseling at Dover High School. “With the increase in the cost of applying for and attending post-secondary schools, all efforts to reduce financial hurdles are appreciated. We will be meeting with students and parents over the next month, in classrooms, evening presentations and one-on-one; we look forward to sharing this information with them.”

The university kicked off its anniversary year in September. For 150 years, the vision, passion, action, tenacity and love for UNH of generations of Wildcats have transformed a college that began as one professor and 10 students in borrowed facilities into a multi-campus flagship public research university whose impact stretches from the edges of our universe to the worldwide communities we call home.

Any New Hampshire resident who has already applied will have the fee refunded within the next several weeks.
