Previously Enrolled Students

Former UNH students, whose degree status at the University has been interrupted, may apply to resume their studies by submitting an application for readmission. The application needs to be printed and sent to the following address:

UNH Admissions
3 Garrison Avenue
Durham, NH 03824


  • If you have already earned a degree from UNH (baccalaureate or associate) and are interested in a second degree, apply as a transfer student. Please note: You cannot apply for a second B.A. degree.
  • If you were enrolled in an associate's degree program at the Thompson School or UNH Manchester and wish to apply to a baccalaureate degree program, apply as a two to four year transfer.
  • If you are planning to finish your degree requirements during a summer session, or finish your graduation requirements at another college or university, contact the Registrar’s Office at (603) 862-1590 for information about “Reinstatement for Graduation” procedures.

Only under extraordinary circumstances will a student be readmitted after being academically dismissed (a second suspension is considered a dismissal). Consult with your former college dean PRIOR to submitting a readmission application.

If you were suspended from the University for disciplinary reasons or left with disciplinary charges pending, you must receive clearance from the Office of Community Standards to return. Contact them at (603) 862-3377 or, Hitchcock Hall, Room 4, for more information.

Transcripts of Non-UNH Coursework

Coursework completed at other institutions will be evaluated for transfer credit upon receipt of an official transcript. The transcript must include final grades for all coursework completed, including coursework in progress at the time of application.

The deadline for filing the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) is March 1. Additional information is available at the Financial Aid website.
