Getting Started with Advising

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


  • Students will complete the 3 Steps to Prepare for Advising below
  • Students will be invited to schedule a virtual appointment via their UNH student email address starting in mid-December
  • Students will work with a professional advisor to review degree requirements and finalize their schedule
  • 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 have access to offices such as student accessibility services,  financial aid, and student engagement. To learn more about all the steps new students need to complete, please visit the Accepted Students page.

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. 

All new students need to activate their UNH accounts. For assistance, please call the UNH IT Help Desk at (603)862-4242 or visit their website at
