  • Bills are posted to your MyUNH account. For more information on billing and payment options contact Business Services.
  • Register for June Transfer Orientation and transfer advising, after which you can register for classes. Note: If you are undeclared in the College of Liberal Arts, were accepted after or admitted to any major after June Orientation, follow up directly with the transfer advising contact for your major.
  • Complete your required health forms and your UNH Student Health Benefit Plan enrollment or waiver by June 30.
  • Submit your final transcript to the Admissions Office by July 15. You are admitted to UNH pending the satisfactory completion of any ongoing coursework.

Advisers are generally not able to meet with incoming students before December, so please wait until then to contact them.
