Starting your SNHU Experience

You will receive a series of welcome emails prior to beginning your studies at SNHU. The emails will include details on New Student Check In, Orientation and Opening, including the dates you must arrive by. Please pay close attention to the information within these emails to ensure you have the best start at SNHU.

New Student Check In

During Check In, you will meet with International Student Services, the Wellness Center, Student Financial Services, and the IT Help Desk.

You will need to bring the following items to Check In:

  • Your hardcopy passport with visa
  • Original medical documents with English translations
  • Payment for your first term expenses
  • Your laptop or tablet

Orientation and Opening

To ensure the best start to your university experience, we have created an Orientation and Opening program intended to help you settle into life at SNHU. The program will give you the opportunity to engage in social activities, meet fellow students and adjust to being a SNHU student.

Our program also provides you with key information about the university, our departments, resources, and engagement opportunities. During orientation, we also discuss your university health insurance coverage and the U.S. immigration regulations that you will need to comply with in order to maintain your student status.
