International Applicants

To protect international applicants from wasting time and money applying to the Materials Science Program when we cannot accept you – either because enrollment is already full, or because the deadline for applications has passed, or because your academic preparation, financial resources and/or other qualifications are not suitable for the Materials Science Program at UNH  we require all prospective international students living outside of the United States to submit the UNH Graduate School Pre-application Form which can be found here:

Submission of the pre-application form is free of charge.

Fill out the form and then e-mail it to the UNH Graduate School at with the subject line of "International Pre-application Form." The Graduate School will process your pre-application and send it to the Materials Science Program for their review and evaluation. Once the Materials Science Program has made a decision about your pre-application, you will be notified by e-mail. Depending upon the time of year, this process may take from 1 to 6 weeks.

If your pre-application is approved, you are not guaranteed acceptance into the Materials Science Program at UNH.  Instead, approval of your pre-application is an indication that you have a reasonable chance of being admitted and it may be worth your time and expense to apply as a full applicant using the standard application process.  

As an international applicant, you will of course need to have completed the TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) and you will need to secure a student VISA for entry into the USA, if you are accepted by UNH and our Program.
