Getting Started with Advising

All students will hear from their advisor in early June with more information about the advising and registration process. Be sure to check your UNH email regularly for updates.

Advising & Registration Process:
  • Students will complete the 3 Steps to Prepare for Advising below

  • Students will work with a professional advisor to review degree requirements and finalize their schedule
    • First-Year students will meet with an advisor during orientation
    • Transfer students will be invited to schedule a virtual appointment via their UNH student email address starting on June 1
  • Advisors will work with the UNH Manchester Registration Office to finalize registration for new students

In addition to meeting individually with their professional advisor, new students will participate in orientation, connect with student leaders, and have access to offices such as student accessibility servicesfinancial aid, and student engagement.

For students admitted after orientation, please check your UNH student email address for information about advising and course registration. 

Advising Preparation

Additional Resources

The Center for Academic Enrichment provides a math assessment to aid incoming students in math course selection. This tool is designed to help you assess your mathematical knowledge and skills and make choices that will facilitate your academic success.

Math assessments are free for UNH Manchester students and can be taken online both in a place and at a time that is most convenient for you! After completing the assessment, you will have an opportunity to compare your score to which math courses would be appropriate for you. You will also be provided individualized Prep and Learning Modules to improve your mathematical knowledge. After working in the modules, you will have the choice to re-take the assessment up to 3 times, if needed, to improve your score for up to six months.

Incoming students needing a quantitative reasoning course are strongly encouraged to take the math assessment. This tool will give you immediate access to free effective resources and guide you towards the best path for success in completing your quantitative reasoning requirement.

Students looking to enroll in MATH 425: Calculus I are required to take the math assessment unless they already meet the prerequisite for the course. 


If you have questions at any point throughout this setup process, please call UNH Information Technology at (603)862-4242.
