Everything You Need to Do Before Classes
Welcome to the University of New Haven Family!
By submitting your deposit and enrollment commitment form, you've become a part of our family and can continue on your journey to join us in Charger Nation!
You've already done a lot of hard work during your high school or college career to earn a spot at UNH, and we commend you for that. Now we give you your first assignments as a UNH student.
Officially becoming a college student requires a lot of coordination between you and the University, and there are a number of tasks we need you to complete before you can begin classes. Part of our commitment to making the transition to college life as easy as possible for our new students is the creation of this website - the Road Map for New Students.
We have captured in one place all of the tasks you need to complete before you can begin classes in the spring. Several have important deadlines that you'll need to meet to ensure that you stay on the right road, so pay careful attention.
Instructions for Using the Road Map for New Students
Since the various steps along the Road Map need to be completed at different times before you start classes in the spring, you'll need to track your progress carefully to ensure that you meet deadlines. You can download a checklist in PDF format right here.
We hope that this section will be fairly self-explanatory and it is designed to take you from step-to-step along the Road Map. In keeping with the Road Map theme, you'll see "traffic signs" at the bottom of each page that direct you to take actions:
The green signs will take you from Step to Step along the Road Map. This is the easiest way to move forward and backward as you progress through steps.
The orange "detour" signs will open a new window and take you out of the Road Map for New Students to a page where you can complete an action.
We recommend doing each of the steps in the order we have provided them, though we recognize that might not always be possible. As long as you complete all of the steps by each of the specified deadlines, you will be ready for classes in the fall.
Finally, there is contact information for a helpful UNH staff member or office located in the left-column blue boxes under every step. If you can't figure out what to do, or have a question about completing a task or form, reach out to us for assistance.
