Welcome back to the University of New Hampshire! Whether you have been away for a semester or a number of years, we are glad that you are returning to the UNH community to continue your studies.
Information for Readmitted Students
We are pleased that you are planning to resume your studies at UNH. This sheet provides information and instructions pertinent to your enrollment for the fall semester.
MyUNH-- the UNH Portal
Course Registration, Tuition Billing and Financial Aid awards are now all on-line. You must access the UNH Portal, “MyUNH” at myunh.unh.edu (blackboard.unh.edu) to select and register for your classes, review your tuition bill (paying on-line is an option), check your financial aid status, or view a transfer credit award.
Transfer Credit /Transcripts
In order to receive transfer credit for college coursework completed since leaving UNH, you need to have an official transcript sent to the Office of Admissions. If you have completed or are currently enrolled in UNH coursework through Continuing Education at the Durham or Manchester campus, you do not need to request a transcript as we can obtain a grade report through the Registrar’s Office. For non-UNH coursework, an “Evaluation of Transfer Credits” Form will be completed and forwarded to your college dean. Please note that credit will not be awarded for any coursework completed during the semester following an academic suspension from the University.
Academic Advising/Class Registration
You may contact your inital major advisor after April 15. To identify your major advisor, go to http://admissions.unh.edu/initialcontact. The undergraduate catalog and Time and Room Schedule can be accessed on-line at myunh.unh.edu : under the "Tools" menu, choose "Course Schedule and Registration Info".
Please note: All outstanding financial obligations to the University must be resolved with Business Services before you will be able to register for classes.
UNH bills students electronically through MyUNH. Fall semester bills are generally posted beginning in early July, after the USNH Board of Trustees sets the 2016-2017 tuition rates. Go to the Webcat/Services tab and click “Continue” and select “Account Summary & Bill” to review your bill. Students may set up Authorized Payer accounts for parents or others who are responsible for paying the tuition bill. See www.unh.edu/business-services for instructions.

You have been readmitted to a specific major or an undeclared status within a college division of the university. You are guaranteed a space as long as you meet departmental standards for continuation in the program.
Changes of major are possible with approval from the appropriate college dean and department chairperson. It is important to realize, however, that not all change of major requests can be honored. Contact the appropriate college dean for additional details.
The required form is the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). March 1 is the priority deadline for receipt of the FAFSA form by the federal processor.
If you have applied for financial aid, you may access your Financial Aid information from MyUNH: go to the Webcat/Services tab and click “Continue”, then select “Student Services & Financial Aid”, then select “Financial Aid”. This site will provide valuable information about the status of your financial aid application and, when all requirements are met, your actual financial aid package.
