To secure your seat in the Fall 2016 entering class, you are required to pay a deposit of $600 in two installments. Your seat deposit is nonrefundable and it will be applied toward your tuition upon your enrollment. Payment may be made online by EFT or credit card; or, by mail, money order or check. You can make your payment online.
IMPORTANT NOTE: We cannot process VISA credit cards via our online payment program. We do accept American Express, Mastercard and Discover.
Complete your FAFSA. U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents are eligible for financial aid, that may consist of U.S. government backed Stafford and Perkins Loans, Federal Work-Study, or need-based grants. Your FAFSA will be used to determine your full financial aid package. The FAFSA is available online after January 1, 2013.
The Financial Aid Office will begin preparing Financial Aid Award Letters by the end of February once they receive the results of your FAFSA. Once you receive the Award Letter, you should sign it and return to the Financial Aid Office and complete the additional loan paperwork online.
Student loans will be certified by the Financial Aid Office beginning in late July.
International students must complete and return the Financial Supplemental Form. The FSF must be completed and received by the Admissions Office, with supporting financial documents and your first deposit of $300, before UNH Law can issue an I–20. A copy of your passport, including your photograph page, must be provided when you submit your Financial Supplemental Form.
New Hampshire Domicile Discount
JD students who have been awarded the New Hampshire domicile tuition discount must complete and return a Certificate of New Hampshire Domicile. This form must be completed and received by the Admissions Office no later than July 15, 2013. If the form is not received by July 15, 2013, you will forfeit the resident tuition waiver.
Please Request an Official Transcript.
As required by the American Bar Association, your offer of admission is contingent upon our receipt of an official undergraduate transcript verifying completion of your baccalaureate degree. The transcript provided by LSDAS is a photocopy and is not official. Please make arrangements to have your official undergraduate transcript mailed directly to us from your undergraduate institution upon completion of your undergraduate degree. You may also want to request an official copy for your own records. Our mailing address is: UNH School of Law Admissions Office, 2 White Street, Concord, NH 03301.
UNH Law provides an extensive orientation program for all incoming students. Our Student Mentor program assigns an experienced student to all 1Ls to help with both the transition to law school and throughout the first year of studies. Student Mentors are happy to answer a range of questions, from getting settled in Concord to understanding law school assignments and exams.
Student Services provides an UNH School of Law community password-protected current housing list online.
