Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

In addition to admission requirements discussed earlier candidates who plan to specialize in engineering should present at least four years of mathematics including trigonometry, geometry and logarithms as well as laboratory coursework in chemistry and/or physics, preferably both.

All candidates for admission to bachelor?s degree programs are required to submit the results of a Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT-I) of the American College Testing program (ACT). SAT-II tests are not required.

Except for early notification candidates, applications should be submitted after the first marking period grades for senior year are available and before February 1. Applications received after that date are considered only on a space-available basis.

Spring semester admissions have a November 1 deadline for full consideration.

For those students that are accepted as Presidential Scholars, they can apply for a scholarship that covers tuition, room and board for 4 years. Those students that enroll in the college become eligible for annual merit and need based scholarships. Each year over 200 students benefit from the scholarships.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International students should submit the application for admission and all appropriate supporting materials listed for other applicants, including TOEFL results, for which the recommended minimum score is 550. Certified English translations of all transcripts, certificates, and other documents must be submitted along with the original documents. Only certified photocopies are official. International students must also file a UNH International Applicant Financial Statement, available from the Office of Admissions.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

There are no additional requirements for non-resident students.

Residency Requirements

At most 96 (semester) credit hours can be applied for transfer credit. At least the last 32 credit hours of any program are required to be earned at UNH. This is referred to as the Senior Residency requirement. Upper-level major courses are expected to be earned at UNH.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer admission to UNH is competitive. The University will consider qualified candidates seeking transfer from approved institutions. The consideration of a student's candidacy includes review of course selection and the extent to which that selection addresses the university's general education requirements.

Transfer credit is awarded for courses that have been completed with a grade of C or better, provided those courses are comparable to courses offered at UNH. Each course must carry at least 3 semester credits to qualify for general education consideration. Formal transfer credit evaluations are provided with the offer of admission.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 20
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 54
