NO TUITION FOR QUALIFIED IN-STATE STUDENTS

Our commitment to your education The Granite Guarantee covers the cost of tuition for all first-time, first-year, Pell Grant-eligible New Hampshire students. Launched during CELEBRATE 150: The Campaign for UNH, marking the university’s 150th anniversary, this new program bridges the financial gap between a Pell Grant recipient’s total federal and state aid package and the cost of in-state tuition.

The requirements are simple.  Qualified students must enroll full-time for both the fall and spring semesters and meet all financial aid application deadlines. There is no paperwork Accepted New Hampshire students who are Pell Grant-eligible automatically receive the Granite Guarantee benefit. All they have to do is:
     • Apply to UNH at unh.edu/apply • Apply for Financial Aid at unh.edu/financialaid Ongoing support Granite Guarantee aid renews automatically, provided students:
     • Remain at UNH for all four years
     • Remain a New Hampshire resident
     • Remain enrolled full-time
     • Maintain federal Pell Grant eligibility
     • Continue to make satisfactory progress toward a degree
     • Meet annual financial aid application deadlines

A significant achievement The Granite Guarantee is a significant achievement toward our goal of making a UNH education attainable for every New Hampshire student. UNH hopes to expand the Granite Guarantee to more New Hampshire students in the future.

Will I still have student loans? Eligible students may still seek loans to help pay for non-tuition expenses such as fees, room and board and books. unh.edu/main/granite-guarantee
