A $500 non-refundable seat deposit is required.
To secure your seat in the fall or spring entering class, you are required to pay a deposit of $500. While your seat deposit is nonrefundable, it will be applied toward your tuition when you enroll.
Payment must be made in U.S. dollars. Acceptable forms of payment are bank checks, money orders, and personal checks (drawn from a U.S. bank).
A credit card payment can only be made through the following link: https://bosebill.salliemae.com/NetPay/Templates/850/frameset.html. Please note that online credit card payments will be assessed a 2.65% convenience fee by the processor at the time of payment and that only Mastercard, Discover and American Express are accepted.
Your position in the Master’s program is not confirmed until your tuition deposit is received.
United States citizens and Permanent Residents of the United States may apply for federal financial aid. Eligible students should complete an online FAFSA in order for the Financial Aid Office to determine financial aid need. Please visit our financial aid page for detailed information on application procedures and how to apply for your student loans.
We also provide a list of funding sources for international students.
Download, complete and return the Financial Supplement Form. The completed FSF must be received by the Graduate Programs Admissions Office, along with supporting financial documents and your seat deposit of $500, before the University of New Hampshire School of Law can issue an I–20.
We advise international students to allow several months for securing a visa. Completion and timely submission of your FSF is extremely important.
For students entering in the fall of 2012, please check the Academic Calendar for schedule information, and the Student Life pages for more detailed orientation information as the time gets closer. Orientation is mandatory. All Masters students choose their classes after meeting with their advisor during orientation. Please look at the class schedules to see what courses are available.
Student Services will provide an updated housing list in late fall and late spring. You will need a user name and password to access the housing list; all instructions are posted on the housing website.
The Graduate Programs Admissions Committee will consider a graduate student's request to defer admission to the following semester or to the same term (spring/fall) the following year, after the $500 nonrefundable seat deposit has been made and the admitted student has submitted to the Graduate Programs Admission Office a written request to defer admission.
If the Admissions Committee approves the deferment, the student will be required to submit a nonrefundable Deferment Deposit of $500 within 30 days. The Deferment Deposit, along with the Seat Deposit, will be credited toward the student’s first year.
Students may elect to defer admission to the following semester or to the same term (spring/fall) the following year. An admitted student may defer his/her admission just once.
A deferred student must submit an updated résumé, a letter of Intent to matriculate, and a revised Financial Supplement Form (if applicable) along with current financial documents to the Graduate Programs Admission Office by April 1 (for fall admission) or Sept 1 (for spring admission) of the entering year.
