No internal transfer option. Students should speak with their advisor for other options.

Paul College hosts informational meetings once or twice a month each fall and spring semester for current 4-year degree students who have questions about majors in the school. If a student is considering a major in Paul College, he/she should attend one of these meetings as soon as possible to become fully aware of the requirements. Students can find out meeting dates, times and locations from their UACC Advisor or the Paul College Undergraduate Programs Office. If a student has more in depth questions they may meet individually with Lisa Pappajohn during certain hours on Fridays. Please refer students to the Undergraduate Programs and Advising Office to schedule an appointment.

Eligibility requirements are reviewed each year and can change from year to year. UNH-Manchester students and Thompson School students have a different application process and should speak with the advisor at their school regarding applying to Paul College.
