DURHAM, N.H. (AP) - The University of New Hampshire is waiving its application fee for in-state undergraduate applicants applying for fall 2017 in celebration of the school’s 150th anniversary.

The school says all undergraduate and transfer applicants who apply to either the Durham or Manchester campuses by Nov. 18 will have the $50 application fee waived.

Residents who have already applied will be refunded within the next several weeks.

UNH will kick off its anniversary celebration later this month.

Enrollment management head Victoria Dutcher tells New Hampshire Public Radio she hopes waiving the fees will result in a 5 percent increase in the number of in-state applicants. The school had a record number of total applicants last year- more than 20,000. But less than 25 percent of those were New Hampshire residents.
