Attend an Admitted Student Day
Admitted Student Days will be held on Saturday, March 10, 2018 and Saturday, April 7, 2018. Learn more about UNH Law, connect with current students and faculty, and discover the many opportunities that await you here. RSVP online or contact the Office of Admissions to set up a personalized visit.
Pay Your Tuition Deposit
In order to secure your seat in the 2018 entering class, you are required to submit a nonrefundable tuition deposit. Please refer to your letter of admission for your deposit deadline.
The deposit will be applied toward your tuition upon enrollment. Pay online with EFT or a credit card; or, you may send a check or money order (made payable to UNH School of Law) to the Office of Admissions.
Complete Your FAFSA
U.S. citizens and U.S. permanent residents are eligible for federal financial aid. Your FAFSA will be used to determine your full financial aid package. Our school code is 002589, and the priority deadline is March 1.

Log in to WebCat to check your Financial Aid Status
Starting in mid-February, Admissions will provide secure website (WebCat) login access information by email. Check your inbox regularly for updates from Admissions.
Shortly after paying the required seat deposit, international students will receive an email with instructions on how to use our online system to apply for a SEVIS Certificate of Eligibility, Form I-20 or DS-2019. After completing the required online process, the Immigration Advisor will review your documents and begin working with you as you apply for a student visa. If you have any questions, please contact Christine Rousseau, Immigration Advisor firstname.lastname@example.org
Request an Official Transcript
The American Bar Association requires verification of completion of your Bachelor’s degree.

(The transcript provided to us from LSAC’s CAS is a copy and not official.)

We do not require students to have a laptop, but you will find life in law school to be much easier with one. Approximately 98 percent of our students type their exams, so having a laptop is nearly a must. Please review the computer requirements.
UNH Law provides an online list of available housing from local landlords. The Housing Marketplace is available between March and October. You also may consult our housing guide for helpful rental information.
