Can I complete a UNH Online program while working?
Yes, the UNH Online programs are designed for working professionals. The majority of our classes are asynchronous. This allows you to complete coursework and move through modules on your own time (within given deadlines). However, if the online program includes a field internship or requires clinical hours, please refer to the program-specific page for additional details.
Who can answer my questions about program details, how to apply, and more?
Our Student Success Coach team is available to answer any of your questions and support you through your entire educational journey. The best way to reach us is by email or through online appointment booking.
How much will my online degree cost?
Graduate online programs are charged per credit. Please visit the Business Services Tuition and Fees webpage for more information.
What is the average class size?
Although class size varies between student cohorts, we deliberately keep our class sizes small so that you enjoy a quality online learning experience. You'll have ample opportunities to form relationships with your student cohort, receive individual attention from your instructors, and support from Program Director, Faculty Advisor, and the Student Success Coach Team.
What software do I need to access the online course content?
You will have a unique username and password to log onto our learning management system called Canvas (myCourses). The Canvas dashboard makes it easy to move between your assignments, quizzes, and discussion boards. Before starting your courses, we suggest you review both the minimal technical requirements and the IT team's computer software and hardware recommendations.
Will my online studies be interactive?
We design our online programs for ongoing engagement with your instructors and student cohort by using discussion boards to host lively conversational exchanges. Program instructors make themselves accessible to answer questions and provide academic support. Our graduates often tell us they benefit both professionally and academically from the high level of communication.
How will I be supported while completing my online degree?
You will have access to a faculty advisor, program professors, and administrative staff, along with a wide range of university resources to support your success. Additionally, our Student Success Coach team provides support from your initial inquiry right through your graduation.
Will my diploma indicate that I completed an online degree?
Your diploma does not specify that you completed an online degree. All UNH graduates receive the same degree whether they studied online or on-campus.
Can I attend the in-person graduation ceremony at the University of New Hampshire?
Graduation represents the culmination of your hard work, so we encourage you to attend the UNH Spring Commencement ceremony in May.
