Many Thompson School students do transfer into a four year program after they have completed their associate degree. Students who wish to transfer to a UNH baccalaureate degree program must complete a simple UNH Transfer Form (they do not re-do the Common Application) and will be considered on their academic work. Special attention is paid to a student's cumulative GPA in courses numbered 400 or higher. There is no application fee to apply as a two to four year transfer.
All credits from the Thompson School will transfer (with the exception of TSAS Math Courses) to a UNH baccalaureate program, but may not necessarily fulfill the student’s new degree requirements or general education/discovery requirements (except for COM 209 which will fulfill the ENGL 401 requirement). Completion of a bachelor’s degree after graduating with an associate degree may take longer than 2 years. In general the majority of students who set out to earn a bachelor’s degree take longer than 4 years to complete degree requirements.
Students may also seek to transfer to a four-year program before completing their associate degree; however if a student was not admissible to a four-year program at UNH directly out of high school they will need 2 semesters of solid college level work before the UNH Admissions Office will consider their transfer form. The Thompson School also offers a Transfer Meeting every semester for students interested in learning more about transfer opportunities.
