Prior to orientation and registering for classes, all first-year and transfer students must complete any required placement testing. Placement tests are given in both mathematics and English to help you choose the most appropriate courses to enroll in. 

To determine which (if any) placement tests are required for you, please take the Placement Test Survey.

After completing this survey, you will be contacted, within one business day, with appropriate information for your specific test(s). 

Learn more about placement testing 

First year and transfer students begin their UNH Manchester experience at Orientation where they learn how to navigate college life and access the opportunities and resources available to help them succeed.

Attending an orientation is required prior to course registration. (hint: register early if you want to have the optimal course selection!) 

Find out more about orientation.

The first step toward receiving financial aid is to submit the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). Visit FAFSA.gov to apply online. The UNH Title IV School Code is 002589.

If you have already submitted a FAFSA, you will receive additional financial aid information in the mail in the next few weeks. In the meantime, feel free to contact us with any questions, 603-641-4189.

All high school and/or college students are required to submit final official transcript(s) to the UNH Manchester Admission Office once the school term has been completed. Your acceptance is considered provisional pending the receipt of your final official transcript(s).

High school students who have completed any college coursework must also request that a final official transcript be sent to the Admissions Office.
