Program Overview: 

UNH is a medium-sized land-grant institution founded in 1866. It enrolls about 12,000 undergraduate students, with 50 percent living in on-campus housing. Student involvement, undergraduate research, and recreational and intercollegiate athletics all play important roles in campus life. The campus retains the look and feel of a small New England liberal arts college in a rural setting, with a faculty dedicated to teaching and engagement. UNH prides itself on small residence halls with strong and active communities, dedicated to sustainability and activism. The university is located in Durham, a small New England college town, just 20 minutes away from Atlantic beaches and the small seaside city of Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Boston is one hour to the south; Portland, Maine, is one hour to the north. Both are accessible by public transportation.

This program is limited capacity.

All courses taken on a UCSC Domestic Exchange are awarded UC credit. Your courses and associated grades will be listed on your UCSC transcript, however, you will not receive grade points, meaning, your grades will not be calculated into your UCSC GPA. Notwithstanding, the units you earn will be added to your total units toward graduation. Courses taken on a domestic exchange will not automatically count for major, minor, college and/or general education requirements. In order to request a course satisfy a UCSC requirement, you will need to file a petition with the appropriate department or college and provide syllabi, tests, homework, papers, and other related coursework from abroad. You are encouraged to speak with your department and college academic advisors prior to enrolling in courses in order to determine the likelihood the courses will satisfy the UCSC requirement.
