Application Deadlines

Applying for Fall Semester

Early Action - November 15

 Early Action offers students with a strong interest in UNH the opportunity to receive an admission decision earlier in the process, by the end of January. Students admitted during Early Action have until May 1 to enroll at the University of New Hampshire. Early action applicants must take the SAT or ACT by no later than the December test date.

Applicants who apply for need-based financial aid and are offered admission in January will not be notified of any aid awards until March.

Early Action decision outcomes include: admission to UNH; deferral of the final decision until after another review in the Regular Decision process; or denial of admission.

The common application must be received by November 15  in order to be classified as early action.   Supporting materials (recommendation, test scores, transcript) may arrive after the deadline.  You will receive a confirmation email from Common Application if your application was sent to UNH successfully.  We follow up with a mailed letter notifying applicants of their UNH applicant ID typically within 7-10 days.

Regular Decision - February 1

Applicants who apply under this option will receive an admission decision from us by early April and must have taken the SAT and/or ACT no later than the January test date.

Regular Decision outcomes include: admission to UNH (students must accept or refuse our offer by May 1); denial of admission; assignment to a waitlist, which will include candidates to whom additional offers of admission may be extended if space permits.
