Next Steps

As an international student, there are a few actions you will need to complete before coming to the United States to study. Follow these steps closely, and reach out to the International Admission team at 603.645.9629 or with questions.

1Obtain Your Visa

Most international students study in the United States with an F-1 visa. A smaller number of students have a J-1 visa, which is usually reserved for short-term exchange students.

Follow these steps to obtain your student visa:


On-campus housing is available for ESL, undergraduate and graduate students, with the exception of married students. On-campus housing is limited, so we recommend you make your reservation early. Students who wish to live off campus will be responsible for finding their own housing arrangements. You can explore housing options before making your decision.
