Advising FAQs

How does international transfer credit work at UNH?

Students must receive the equivalent of a U.S.  ‘C’ or better in order to receive transfer credit from abroad.  Grades are recorded on the transcript, but not calculated in the GPA.

Is it possible to study abroad if a student is in the College of Engineering and Physical Sciences (CEPS) or Life Sciences and Agriculture (COLSA)?

Yes, we have a comprehensive list of over 500 programs in 70 countries worldwide.  There are many opportunities for students in all academic disciplines.

How do I fill out the Study Abroad  Course Planning form?

You will find instructions in your UNH-Via account. Please follow the directions on the first page. 

Can I request additional course information/syllabi for the Study Abroad Planning form?

Yes, have the student get in touch with their program provider or their Study Abroad Advisor.

I received a course registration/planning form from a program provider. What should I do with it?

Please forward it to a Study Abroad Advisor at the Center for International Education and Global Engagment.

Can students study abroad in their Senior year?

Yes, they can with the approval of their major department. However, the transcript may come in late and cause an issue for graduation or applying to grad school. CIEGE cannot guarantee when transfer credit appears on the UNH transcript. CIEGE and Registrar’s Office give high priority to processing. Students are responsible for completing all required graduation paperwork while abroad.

How do I develop a study abroad course/UNH Managed program?

Refer to the CIEGE faculty development section.
