Current UNH undergraduates students wishing to transfer credits from another institution should complete a Transfer Credit/Prior Approval Form (available at the Registrar's Office) before taking courses elsewhere in order to establish the number of credits to be accepted and the general education and/or major requirement satisfied by the course.
Students complete the Transfer Credit/Prior Approval Form, supply course descriptions, and obtain signatures of the Registrar's Office, Major Adviser, and Dean of College.
Transfer credit is awarded for completed courses with a grade of C or better, provided those courses are comparable to courses offered at UNH.
We do not accept math courses prior to precalculus. We do not accept elementary foreign language courses if the student has had two or more years of that language in high school within the past seven years.
Each course must carry at least 3 semester credits to qualify for general education consideration.
A course taken at another institution may not be used under the University repeated course rule. If credit was received for a UNH course equivalent to the course taken at another institution no transfer credit will be allowed (Departments may accept equivalent course work at other institutions for grade only - no credit to satisfy departmental requirements).
Credit will not be awarded for any course taken the semester immediately following any academic suspension or dismissal from UNH.
No portion of the student's grade point average will transfer; that is, external averages will not be calculated with UNH grades.
Students attending other than UNH-sponsored programs must take a leave of absence (if qualified), or withdraw and apply for re-admission prior to returning to the University. This does not apply to attendance at summer courses.
The last quarter of a student's total credits should be taken at UNH. If transfer credits fall within this range the student must request a waiver of senior residency from the college dean, using the normal university petition form.
Students or Advisors can now see whether a course transfers from a NH Community College to UNH at nhtransfer.net.
Upon completions of course work the student must request an official transcript be sent to:
