New Hampshire university system freezes in-state tuition
DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — The University System of New Hampshire has announced that tuition for in-state students will be frozen in place for the 2020-2021 academic year.
The Concord Monitor reports that the state board of trustees announced Tuesday that it had unanimously voted to freeze tuition for undergraduate students.
The freeze will go into effect for students at the University of New Hampshire, Plymouth State University, Keene State College and Granite State College.
The New Hampshire House recently increased the state’s appropriation to the university system by $12 million over two years to freeze tuition.
Gov. Chris Sununu called the announcement a “big win for New Hampshire students.”
This is the system’s first tuition freeze since 2013.
