Community college transfers included in UNH program

October 29, 2018 GMT

DURHAM, N.H. (AP) — The University of New Hampshire is expanding a tuition-free program for qualifying students who transfer to the school from the state’s community college system.

The program has helped 800 first-year students studying on the Durham and Manchester campuses. It guarantees New Hampshire students who receive federal Pell grants pay no tuition to attend the university. It is now being offered to new graduates of the community college system.

UNH says the commitment remains in place for the two years to earn a bachelor’s degree, provided the student is enrolled full-time, remains Pell eligible and makes satisfactory progress toward their degree.

The transfer application deadline for spring 2019 enrollment has been extended to Nov 15. Students who apply for fall 2019 and beyond will also be eligible.
