How to Register: Continuing Education Students

Are you in pursuit of professional advancement, a personal goal, a career change, applying to graduate school, or fulfilling your love of learning?

UNH Manchester offers classes to help you achieve the success you desire. Credit courses may be applied toward a future degree program.  If you haven't been admitted to a UNH Manchester degree program, you would be considered a continuing education or non-degree student. Continuing education or non-degree students are limited to register for no more than 11 credits (usually two four-credit courses).

The eligibility requirements for enrolling in credit-bearing courses include:

  • A high school diploma or equivalent.
  • Demonstrated successful academic performance.
  • Successful completion of all course prerequisites.
  • Not currently under disciplinary sanctions from UNH/UNH Manchester, another college or university, or court-ordered probation or other sanctions.

*The University reserves the right to restrict registration to those who can demonstrate the completion of the above requirements and to bar registration or withdraw a student who upon request fails to provide proper documentation or who demonstrates unacceptable performance once enrolled.

Audit Privileges

Granted at the discretion of the instructor on a space-available basis, non-matriculated students may audit credit courses at the rate of $100 per credit plus the mandatory semester fees and any other required course fees.

Registrations for audit classes are accepted only after classes begin, with a signed authorization from the instructor. Students who register for a course before classes begin and change to audit after classes begin are not eligible for the $100 per credit rate.

Senior Citizens

New Hampshire residents who are age 65 or older and are not enrolled in a degree program are eligible to take a maximum of two credit-bearing courses* per academic year, tuition-free. Students are responsible for all other costs of attendance, including fees.

Prospective students who will be age 65 or older as of the first day of the semester, summer session or term in which they wish to take a course can register on the first day of class on a space-available basis and must provide proof of age and New Hampshire residency. Waivers will only be granted at the time of registration (not retroactively). Non-credit courses, workshops, etc., are not covered by this tuition waiver.


* Certain credit-bearing courses offered at UNH but administered by other institutions are not covered by the tuition waiver.

General Information

Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act (FERPA)

If you would like to give authorized access to your UNH financial and/or academic student records, you must complete a FERPA Waiver Release Form.

The Family Educational Rights & Privacy Act or FERPA (the Buckley Amendment) is a federal law that protects the privacy of student education records.  The law applies to all schools that receive funds under an applicable program of the U.S. Department of Education. FERPA defines students’ rights broadly, giving the student the right to control to whom their education record is released. Broadly, FERPA:

  • Establishes the rights of students to inspect and review their education records, 
  • Provides students the right to control the release of education records to third parties without the permission of the student
  • Provides guidelines for the correction of inaccurate or misleading data through formal and informal hearings. 
  • Provides students the right to file complaints with the Family Policy Compliance Office, U.S. Department of Education concerning alleged failures by the institution to comply with the Act.

The University System's FERPA-related policies are in the Students Right, Rules, and Responsibilities published each fall by the University.


UNH Manchester’s Registration Office





Any student not subject to academic or conduct action may take a temporary leave of absence from UNH. Students interested in taking a leave of absence may email the Registration Office.

Students who would like to be advised on their decision may contact the Academic Advising Office. Students taking a leave for health reasons should contact Health and Wellness in Durham.

A leave of absence may impact student loan deferment and/or loan repayment. Remember to contact the Financial Aid Office to discuss your financial aid status.

A student will not be granted transfer credit for academic work taken during the Leave of Absence. Students who wish to attend another institution or otherwise do not wish to continue their education at UNH should withdraw.


Students returning from a leave of absence must complete a Return from Leave of Absence Form by June 1 if returning for a Fall semester or by November 1 if returning for a Spring semester. Completed forms should be returned to the UNH Manchester Registration Office.

Students will be reinstated into the same major at the point of their leave’s start. Normally, leaves of absence may not exceed six consecutive semesters, exclusive of January Term and Summer Session. Exceptions to the leave of absence policy will be granted by the University Academic Standards and Advising Committee and only in unusual circumstances.

If students wish to be admitted into a different major when returning from a leave must apply for readmission through the Admissions Office.

Students who took a leave of absence for health reasons must contact Health and Wellness in Durham.


Students who do not wish to return to UNH Manchester may withdraw. Students who wish to withdraw can meet with the Director of Academic Advising. Students withdrawing for health reasons should contact Health and Wellness in Durham.
