NHTI Articulation Agreement

Students who earn an associate degree in Mechanical, Electronic, Robotics and Automation, Computer or Manufacturing Engineering Technology at NHTI are automatically considered for admission to UNH Manchester's bachelor's degree program in either Electrical or Mechanical Engineering Technology, without having to complete a separate application. Students will need to complete and file the Dual Admit/Intent to Release Information forms with the NHTI registrar’s office during the semester they intend to graduate, then the registrar’s office will forward the file to UNH Manchester to process admission.

Nashua Community College Articulation Agreement

Students who earn an associate degree in Computer or Electronic Engineering Technology at Nashua Community College are automatically considered for admission to UNH Manchester's bachelor's degree program in either Electrical or Mechanical Engineering Technology, without having to complete a separate application. Students will need to complete and file the Dual Admit/Intent to Release Information forms with the NCC registrar’s office during the semester they intend to graduate, then the registrar’s office will forward the file to UNH Manchester to process admission.

Engineering Access Program

The Engineering Access Program (EAP) is a cooperative effort of shared resources between UNH Manchester, NHTI and the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences (CEPS) at UNH in Durham. EAP gives students a path to a UNH bachelor of science degree in physics or chemical, civil, electrical or mechanical engineering through a two-stage, articulated transfer process.

UNH Manchester students enter their freshman year as an 'undeclared' bachelor's degree candidate or an associate in arts in General Studies candidate. During freshman year, most program requirements are completed at the Manchester campus, with potentially some courses at NHTI in Concord. Upon completing all freshman course requirements and satisfying required achievement standards, students can transfer to their desired CEPS program and complete their sophomore, junior and senior years at the University's Durham campus.

Exceptions

Former UNH Students: If you previously held degree status at UNH but did not complete your degree, you will need to complete a separate application for readmission. Please contact UNH Manchester's admissions office for more information, or download the application for readmission here.

International Students: Please visit the international student admissions page for more information and to apply.

If you live in New England and your state does not offer a bachelor's-level Electrical Engineering Technology program at a public college or university, the New England Regional Student Program allows you to enroll in our program at a reduced tuition rate.
