Attend an Admitted Student Day

Admitted Student Days will be held on Saturday, March 11, 2017 and Saturday, April 8, 2017. 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 2017 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.

International Students

International students must complete and return the International Applicant Financial Declaration.  Contact Christine Rousseau, International Student Advisor, at 603-513-5197 or christine.rousseau@law.unh.edu for advice and assistance.

Request an Official Transcript

The American Bar Association requires verification of completion of your Bachelor’s degree.

Prior to enrolling at UNH Law, the Registrar from your undergraduate degree granting institution must send the UNH Law Admissions Office an official copy of your final transcript which shows conferral of your Bachelor’s degree. (The transcript provided to us from LSAC’s CAS is a copy and not official.)

Your transcript should be sent to:

Office of Admissions
UNH School of Law
2 White Street
Concord, NH 03301

Mark your Calendar for Orientation

Save the date for orientation: August 22 – 24, 2017.

Computer Specifications

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.

Housing

Student Services provides an UNH School of Law community password-protected current housing list online.  Also consult our Housing Guide or visit our Housing Marketplace.

Registration

The Registrar will register incoming 1Ls for fall classes in late July. View the academic calendar.
