1. What does Non-Degree mean?
A Non-Degree student is any student who is not enrolled in a UNH undergraduate or graduate degree program. Non-Degree (a.k.a. Continuing Education) students can be enrolled either part time or full time. Non-Degree students who wish to be enrolled full time (twelve or more credits) will need to get special permission. Undergraduate Non-Degree students should contact UNH Admissions to obtain special student status. Non-Degree graduate students need to contact the Graduate School for permission to register for more than eight credits.

2. I am interested in returning to school. How do I register as a Non-Degree student?
If you are new to UNH, you will need to register in person, over the phone, or by faxing or mailing a registration form. If you are a returning student and registered through Continuing Education last semester, you can register via Webcat. Once you’ve registered, you can also verify or print your schedule details on Webcat. All course offerings are listed under the Credit Courses & Schedule link above.

3. How much does it cost to go to UNH? Is Financial Aid available?
Non-Degree tuition varies depending on the number of credits you register for. You should also factor in mandatory and course-related fees. Current tuition rates and fees are listed under the Tuition & Fees link above. Any special, course-specific fees, such as lab fees, will be posted alongside the course information in the Course Schedule. Depending on your situation, financial aid may be available to you. For more information, please contact the UNH Financial Aid office at (603) 862-3600.

4. Are the courses offered to Non-Degree students equivalent to those offered to Degree students?
Yes. All courses are taught by approved UNH faculty. Non-Degree/Continuing Education students take the same courses as Degree students, and all credits can be applied to a degree program within the University. Please note that a maximum of 96 credits taken as a Non-Degree undergraduate student can be applied to a UNH undergraduate program. Likewise, twelve credits taken as a Non-Degree graduate student can be applied to a UNH graduate program.

5. The class I wanted to take was full when I tried to register? Will I still be able to register?
You may be able to add a course after the start of the semester with the instructor’s signature. You should download and print an Add/Drop (a.k.a. Change of Registration) form. Adds after the start of the semester are completely at the discretion of the instructor, so if he or she is willing to sign the form, you can then bring it into the Registrar’s Office to register. The deadlines to add and drop courses are clearly posted on our website, so please be sure to adhere to the specified dates to avoid petitioning and penalties.

6. I am currently enrolled in a course. However, personal circumstances have made it necessary to drop the course. What do I need to do?
If you’re registered for only one course, in effect you’ll be “withdrawing” from the university. Therefore, you can simply e-mail us (register.dce@unh.edu) with an explanation of why you need to drop the course. Please be sure to include your name and the course information. If you’re registered for more than one course and are only dropping one, you’ll need to have an add/drop form signed by the instructor. The deadlines to add and drop courses are clearly posted on our website, so please be sure to adhere to the specified dates to avoid petitioning and penalties.

7. Will a copy of my grade be sent to me?
No. UNH does not mail paper copies of grades. Grades are posted on Webcat. If you’ve already established a MyUNH account, you can access Webcat by clicking on the Webcat/Services tab at the top of the page once you’ve logged into MyUNH. Final grades are located under the heading Student Services/Financial Aid and then under Student Records.

8. How can I obtain a UNH transcript?
You can request a transcript through Webcat. If you’ve already set up a MyUNH account, you can access Webcat by clicking on the Webcat/Services tab at the top of the page once you’ve logged into MyUNH. Transcripts are located under the heading Student Services/Financial Aid.

9. How can I verify my enrollment for insurance purposes or to defer my student loans?
You can request enrollment verification through Webcat. If you’ve already set up a MyUNH account, you can access Webcat by clicking on the Webcat/Services tab at the top of the page once you’ve logged into MyUNH. Enrollment verification is located under the heading Student Services/Financial Aid.
