The University of New Hampshire says, thanks to a new program, more than 400 incoming freshman will attend the school tuition free. 

Under UNH’s new ‘Granite Guarantee’ program, any full-time, first year student, who lives in New Hampshire and qualifies for federal Pell grants, can attend the university without paying for tuition.
