General Information for International Students
Professor Phil Hatcher
All prospective international students are required to go through our pre-application process.
- Why A Preapplication?
The University of New Hampshire requires a detailed application for admission which must be accompanied by records and documents that may be expensive or difficult for you to obtain or duplicate. To protect yourself from wasting time and money applying to a program at the University which cannot receive you--because we do not offer the course you desire, because the enrollment is already full, because deadline for applications has passed, or because your academic preparation, financial resources or other qualifications are not suitable for the program of study you have indicated--you should fill out our on-line preapplication form.
To fill out the preapplication form go to: http://www.gradschool.unh.edu/php/preapp.php
When you submit the online preapplication form it goes to our department for review and, once a decision is made, you will be notified by email. This form will assist the department in making a preliminary review of your credentials. Please note that you must hold a 4-year baccalaureate degree or its equivalent as a precondition for applying to any of our graduate programs. Please be aware that our departments will only review your preapplication if you have provided the following test scores - TOEFL, GRE and/or GMAT. If your preapplication is approved you can then submit a full application online.
Full Application Process
The full application process requires all applicants to submit OFFICIAL college transcripts, college degree/diploma certificates, letters of recommendation, test scores, personal statements, and other supporting documents. A $65.00 (USD) non-refundable application fee must also be paid when you submit your application
Please refer to the application instructions page for detailed information on submitting your application. Unless otherwise noted, all international applicants follow the same process for submitting a full application as US applicants. You can apply online using our online application process. Note: The Public Health (MPH) program is not open to international students.
Admitted Applicants - Financial Declaration Form
Should you be admitted to UNH then you will be required to submit the International Applicant Financial Declaration form, which must be completed whether or not funds have been requested from the University. However, only submit this form if you have been admitted. DO NOT SEND the financial form, statements or passport copies with your application materials. They are only required if you are admitted.
