Summer Session

William F. Murphy, Dean

The University of New Hampshire offers students the opportunity to continue
their studies on a year-round basis through multiple terms during the summer months. The summer courses are of the same high quality as those during the regular academic year and require the same level of academic performance.

Summer Session offerings include a broad range of undergraduate and graduate credit courses in most of the major academic disciplines. Throughout the summer, classes are scheduled in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Special institutes for teachers and other professionals are also offered during the summer and vary in length depending on content.

Enrollment in Summer Session classes does not imply admission to degree candidacy.

Undergraduate Courses

Undergraduate courses are open to undergraduates from UNH and other colleges, to interested members of the community who have a high school diploma or its equivalent or who are at least 18 years of age, and to high school students completing their junior or senior year.

Graduate Courses

Graduate courses are open to UNH graduate students and other individuals with a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited college or university or its equivalent from a foreign institution.

Other Offerings

Other Summer Session offerings include pre-college programs for high school students; noncredit courses and certificate programs; workshops and seminars for business, industry, and the professions; and residential conferences and special institutes for teachers, other professions, students, and the community.

Institutes and Conferences

The Division of Continuing Education and Summer Session uses the facilities of the entire University campus during the summer to conduct special programs, as well as those of the New England Center, the Pease Education and Training Center and nearby commercial establishments.

Conferences and institutes in the form of day meetings or residential programs lasting several days or weeks are conducted by the schools and colleges of the University or may be arranged for external groups. Non-university groups wanted to hold or cosponsor a conference should call the Summer Session Office (603) 862-1937 or Conference Services (603) 862-1900.
