Credit Hours

UNH allows undergraduate students to register for up to 12 total credit hours.  Because of the intensive nature of the 5-week session, Paul College Students are advised to only register for one major course.  Permission will not be given for more than two major courses in a 5-week session.  In addition, we recommend only one online major course be taken during a 5-week session. Based on current academic standing, individual students may be restricted to one major course per session.

Registration Permission

Most Paul College summer courses have prerequisites and major restrictions, which are listed when you search the courses at courses.unh.eduYou are responsible for checking course pre-requisites. You may be dropped from any course(s) when pre-requisites have not been met.

Summer Session Only students who want to take a major restricted course must contact the Undergraduate Programs and Advising Office ( to verify that they have met prerequisites. 

Course Cancelations

No class or section will be taught if the enrollment does not meet minimum requirements at the end of the registration period.

Course Load Policy

Due to the intensive format of January Term, ALL students are limited to registering for one* course and a maximum of 4 credits.

*One Course Exception: Students may register for more than one course provided the courses DO NOT meet concurrently and the total credits DO NOT exceed the 4 credit maximum.
