UNH Path

6 Steps to the UNH Path

Step 1.  Just checking to make sure you answered YES to at least one of the following questions. If so, please continue to Step 2. If you answered NO to all of the questions below, please go the Independent Path section. If you’re confused, contact Global Education.

  • Am I fulfilling an academic requirement?
  • Am I earning UNH credit?
  • Am I traveling with a Recognized Student Organization?
  • Am I traveling with a UNH faculty and/or staff member?
  • Am I participating in a trip that is supervised, arranged, or sponsored by a UNH department or UNH faculty/staff?

Step 2.  Contact study.abroad@unh.edu to schedule an appointment or to ask any questions about the international experience process.  Make sure to state what type of international experience you want either internship, volunteer or research abroad. Come to your Global Education advising appointment with all the information you have gathered about your intended international experience and be prepared to ask questions.

Step 3. Apply for a passport if you do not have one. Renew your passport if it will expire in less than 6 months past your intended return to the U.S. Processing time averages 7-10 weeks from the date your application is received, but this can change depending on circumstances.

Step 4. Login to the UNH-Via portal using your UNH credentials and create your profile.  You will be advised by Global Education about how to proceed with the application process.

Step 5.  Find out if you need a visa by checking with your provider, program sponsor, the host country website.

Step 6. Pay the international insurance fee and other UNH fees that will be posted to your UNH student bill. For more information about the International Travel Assistance and Insurance Program see here.
