Not all graduate programs require an enrollment deposit. To see if your program requires an enrollment deposit visit the departments Programs of Study page and look under the "Application Requirements and Deadlines" section on their website.

Contact our office with questions about your application and deposit status. If you have questions about how to pay your deposit or how to check your billing status, please contact the Business Services Office. If you have program-specific questions, please contact your department directly.

Acceptance and Making a Deposit

By paying your enrollment deposit you are also indicating that you are accepting the offer of admission to the UNH Graduate School. Normally within 1-2 business days of making your deposit, your student record will be ready for you to register and enroll in courses (as long as enrollment for that term has opened up).

Please note that if you were admitted after the deposit deadline, no deposit is required and you will have to indicate whether you wish to accept or not by following the instructions at (https://gradschool.unh.edu/admissions/offer-admission-response). If you wish to defer to another term, or are having difficulty responding online, please email us with your name, UNH ID, term, program, your decision, and any other details about your request you would like us to know.

If you are admitted and do not make the required deposit by the indicated deadline your application may be inactivated, depending on the deposit policy of the program you applied to. This information is availble under the "Application Requirements and Deadlines" section for each program with a deposit.


Payments can be made by logging into your application portal account. If admitted you will have the chance to read your acceptance letter and then make a deposit (which is required to accept the offer of admission). Use the link provided which will take you to the payment portal. Follow the directions and make your payment. If the payment was successful you will be returned to your application so you can accept the offer of admission.


Applicants to programs that require an enrollment deposit are allowed to defer their admission. If you have paid the deposit then the deposit will be applied to the new deferred term. Once your deferral request has been processed by the Graduate School office, we will notify the Business Services Office to move your deposit. If you have not yet paid the deposit, then you will have until the deposit deadline of the deferred term to pay.

If you wish to defer your admission, please email our office directly with your admission deferment request. Include your full name, your UNH 9-Digit ID, your program, whether or not you've made an enrollment deposit, and the term to which you would like to defer your admission.

Non-Acceptance and Inactivations

If you know you will not be accepting our offer of admission or wish to withdraw your application and are unable to indicate this using our online process, please email our office directly with your name, UNH 9-Digit ID, the program and term to which you were admitted and indicate you are declining the offer of admission.

Refunds and Forfeits

Refund amounts and dates are set by each department. Some departmentsmay provide a full or partial refund if an applicant withdraws their acceptance by the refund expiration date set by the department. For a department's refund policy visit the department's Programs of Study page and look under the "Application Requirements and Deadlines" section on their website.
