Students Admitted for Fall 2017
Congratulations on your acceptance to Keene State College! You are in!
Here are the most important things you need to do:
Come to an Information Session to hear more about Keene State College and decide if you want to enroll (we hope you do!).
Payment of enrollment services fee confirms your commitment to enroll and reserves a room for you in one of our residence halls. All freshmen and sophomores are required to live on campus. Although junior and senior transfer students are not guaranteed housing, we reserve a number of spaces for transfer students and prioritize transfer assignments based on academic credits. The Residential Life and Housing staff will have more information about transfer space available after June 1st.
Move-In Day for new students is Wednesday, Aug. 23, 2017.
In the meantime:
Send us your final high-school or college transcript (required)

You must provide the Admissions Office with a final high school or college transcript by July 15, 2017, for our review. Keene State College reserves the right to revoke your admission if you do not complete your coursework at the same level of achievement as at the time of acceptance.
