If you’re interested in advancing or changing your career, fulfilling prerequisites for further education, completing bachelor’s degree requirements at another institution or just developing new skills, UNH Manchester has a path for you. As a non-degree student, you have access to our extensive course offerings without having to formally apply to a degree program.
Whether you’re in search of professional advancement, a career change or skills in a new area of expertise, UNH Manchester offers an array of courses that non-degree students may be able to apply to a bachelor’s degree program at another institution. Non-degree students are limited to no more than 11 credits (usually two four-credit courses). Undergraduate continuing education costs $471/credit for New Hampshire residents and $532/credit for non-residents.
Auditing a course gives you the benefit of learning about a topic or program of study without having to complete class assignments or exams. Audited courses cannot be counted toward a degree, so it’s a great option for those who wish to pursue an area of interest without intending to enroll in a program. Granted at the discretion of the instructor on a space-available basis, credit courses may be audited at the rate of $100 per credit plus the mandatory semester fees and any other required course fees.
Enhance your professional skills with one-day workshops, conferences, special institutes and short-term certificate programs from UNH Professional Development & Training. Over 250 workshops and seminars are offered throughout the year in Manchester, Durham, Portsmouth and online. On-site customized training is also available to companies, schools and organizations. Registration is ongoing.
