Welcome to the University of New Hampshire!

We are happy that you have chosen UNH Manchester to pursue your education. After you’ve been accepted and paid your enrollment deposit, your next steps in becoming a Wildcat are through the orientation program.

First-Year Orientation & Transfer Advising Day

Newly admitted first-year and transfer students will meet with professional advisors at First Year Orientation or Transfer Advising Day. During this mandatory event, you will meet your advisor, learn about your degree requirements, review transfer credits, and register for courses. To learn more about this event and register, please visit the Accepted Students page.

*New students will not be able to register for classes until they attend First Year Orientation or Transfer Advising Day session. Students who do not attend this event will be contacted closer to the start of the semester regarding advising and registration for courses.
