Check the Status of your Application  


Applications must be received by the early action November 15 deadline to be considered for early action.

Scores must be submitted directly from the SAT or ACT testing agency. UNH does not accept scores that appear on the high school transcript, from paper score reports, etc.

UNH considers your highest section scores for the SAT and the highest composite score for the ACT across all test dates that you submit. We thus encourage you to submit your scores to us each time you take the SAT and/or ACT.

The SAT or ACT must be taken prior to the application deadline.
