Most transfer students accepted to a bachelor’s degree program demonstrate:
- Trend in achievement. Although there is no specific requirement for grade point average, most admitted students have a cumulative GPA of 2.8 or above. Your most recent academic record is given the most weight.
- Major-related studies. We look for high school and college courses that reflect your intended major.
- Good academic standing. You should be in good academic standing at, and eligible to return to, the last institution of higher education you attended. If you have been suspended at another institution, you are not able to apply to UNH during the period of your suspension. If you have been expelled from an institution, you must wait two years before being considered for admission to UNH.
The admissions office will not process an application until it is complete with all the required documentation. Applicants should allow three to five weeks after all materials have been filed before anticipating admission notification. There are no interviews as part of the application process. All offers of admission are considered conditional and are subject to the verification of satisfactory achievement when final high school transcripts are reviewed by the Admission Committee.
Permanent resident aliens need to submit a copy of their permanent resident card. Non-U.S. citizens should include a photocopy of the passport page with biographic information.
Do not send IEPs, 504 Plans and other documentation regarding a disability to the Admissions Office. These materials should be brought to the student’s first meeting with their academic counselor after the new student orientation.
