Because we believe that well educated people spread economic, intellectual, and social benefit throughout their community, Keene State College is committed to offering an excellent education to all qualified students, regardless of financial status or social standing. Therefore, the Financial Aid Office's highest priority is to help students in financial need by providing workable packages of merit scholarships and grants, loans, and campus jobs.
By applying to Keene State and completing the FAFSA, you are applying for most forms of financial aid. That's all you need to do; the Financial Aid staff will get you all the aid you're qualified to receive.

No two students are alike, but if you are admitted to KSC and you qualify for financial aid, you will be awarded a package: some combination of scholarships (which do not have to be paid back), loans (which do), and work on campus (which, believe it or not, can be fun, and even educational). Determining financial need, cost of attendance, expected family contribution, award letters and conditions—what's it all mean? Find out here. More
