Manchester Graduate Student Resources

We welcome you to the UNH Graduate School's Manchester office, located in the historic Millyard. Our office serves as the liaison between the graduate students in Manchester and the Graduate School on the Durham campus.

Information for New and Returning Students

Here you will find information about the Manchester campus including tuition and fees, parking, security services, library, and ID information. Use the online UNH Manchester course schedule for help in planning your schedule.


Please be aware of deadlines for course registration and filing your intent to graduate form (when you are nearing the completion of your degree program). Students should register for all of their semester courses at the beginning of the semester, regardless of when the course begins. Changes made after the deadline will incur a $25 late fee. For registration and other deadlines visit the Graduate School's Academic Calendar. Please contact our office with any questions.

Continuous Registration Policy

Unless a leave of absence is granted, graduate students are required to follow Graduate School continuous enrollment registration policy each semester of the academic year until their degree is formally awarded by registering for course credits, research or continuing enrollment. Master’s students must enroll in course credits, Continuing Research (GRAD 900), or Continuing Enrollment (GRAD 800).  EDS students must enroll for course credits or Continuing Enrollment (GRAD 800).
