Step 1. Determine what type of student you are

Which student type are you? Veterans are considered as either a first-year student or a transfer student.

  • If you are a student who has completed high school and never enrolled at another college or university or earned less than 16 credits for college coursework then you are considered a first-year student.
  • If you are a student who has been enrolled at another college/university or received more than 16 college credits then you are considered a transfer student.

Step 2. Complete your application

Select the type of student you are to learn about your application process.

    • Official SAT or ACT Scores (Optional)
      Scores must be submitted directly from the SAT or ACT testing agency. UNH does not accept scores that appear on the high school transcript, from paper score reports, etc.
      • UNH considers your highest section scores across all test dates that you submit. We thus encourage you to submit your scores to us each time you take the SAT and/or ACT.

      • UNH's CEEB code for the ACT is: 2524
