Getting Started with Advising

Newly admitted first-year and transfer students will meet with their professional advisor to review their academic requirements and select courses for the next semester.

  1. On December 15, professional advisors will send all deposited students an email that includes a link to schedule an advising appointment.
  2. After scheduling, students should complete the three steps to prepare for their advising appointment outlined below.
  3. Advising appointments will be held via Zoom video sessions.
  4. After selecting classes, advisors will work with the UNH Manchester Registration Office to finalize registration for new students.
  5. Students will receive an email containing instructions to view their schedule once it has been finalized.

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

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. 

Your primary communication with your advisor will be through UNH email account. Follow these instructions to find your username and create a password. Once you’ve created your password, it’s helpful to “link up” your accounts here.

To access WebCat, where you can view your schedule and pay your tuition bill, you’ll need to complete a 2-factor authentication here.
