Continuing Education is the umbrella for programs which offer access for non-degree students to undergraduate and graduate credit courses. Through the Graduate School, it also offers non-credit professional development certificate programs, including post-bachelor’s and post-Master’s certificates, (www.learn.unh.edu/pcw/pd/certificate.php).

CATS Program (Challenging Academically Talented Students)

High school juniors and seniors with strong academic records may enroll in appropriate college level coursework through this program.  For more information, contact UNH Admissions (603) 862-1360; http://admissions.unh.edu/academics/high-school-students/

Pre-Admission Program

The pre-admission program is intended for non-traditional students seeking to demonstrate their academic abilities prior to possible degree program admission. This program allows students to take two or three courses for at least two semesters.  Students may then apply for transfer to a baccalaureate program, assuming admission criteria are met by the published deadlines. Acceptability is determined by the Office of Admissions, and the University Advising and Career Center provides academic advising.

Pre-Admission Program for Veterans

This pre-admission program is intended for veterans. Like the Pre-admission Program, it allows students to demonstrate their academic abilities prior to possible degree program admission. Advising is tailored to the special needs of veterans. This program allows students to take two or three courses for at least two semesters.  Students may then apply for transfer to a baccalaureate program, assuming admission criteria are met by the published deadlines. Acceptability is determined by the Office of Admissions, and the University Advising and Career Center provides academic advising.

Full Time Special Students (FTSS)

Full time special students may register as non-degree students for 13 or more credits with permission from UNH Admissions and are subject to the same review of their academic potential as those seeking admission to degree candidacy.  They pay full time undergraduate tuition and fees and are ineligible for federal financial aid.

Graduate Programs

Students with a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college of university may enroll as non-degree students in a limited number of graduate courses without applying to a Graduate Program.  For more information, contact the Graduate School (www.gradschool.unh.edu).
