The University of New Hampshire is waiving its fifty dollar application fee for all in-state undergraduate applicants this year.
Last year, UNH had a record number of total applicants – over 20,000. But less than 25 percent of those were New Hampshire residents. The number of in-state applicants is down from five years ago.
Victoria Dutcher, head of enrollment management at UNH, hopes waiving the fees for in-state applicants will help change that.
