As you prepare to attend Keene State College there are a few tasks that you will need to complete. Don’t worry, we’ll walk you through the ten tasks you need to complete to be ready to start at Keene State College. We’ll even tell you how to complete each one and how to get help if you have any questions.

This guide is also a resource that will help to answer any questions you might have: If living on campus, when will you get your roommate’s name? How do you get your KSC ID? How to get your computer ready for the KSC network? How to buy your textbooks?


How Do I Get Started?

Soon after you have paid your enrollment fee you will receive a communication from Academic and Career Advising (ACA).

We will ask you to submit a Registration Data Form (RDF) that will assist ACA Academic Advisors in registering you for up to 12-16 credits in your academic major. We use the information you provide us and your transcripts from other colleges to craft a spring schedule that will move you toward degree completion.

An advisor will mail you a packet of information and a personalized letter once your registration in up to 12-16 credits is complete. You will then register online for any additional courses needed. The Orientation Workbook will be a great tool for you.


Do transfer students need to attend Orientation?

Transfer students are required to attend Welcome Days. If you deposit before May 15th you will be invited to attend both our June and August Orientation programs. If you deposit after May 15th, you will be invited to the August Orientation program. The June program is a wonderful opportunity to meet faculty and register for classes, and the August program provides important information regarding the many resources on campus that you will need to be a successful student.
