Transfer Programs
School of Sciences and Social Sciences

These programs prepare students to transfer to engineering schools after completing integrative studies requirements and foundation courses in mathematics, physics, chemistry, and computer science at Keene State College. Students are given personal advising and assistance in placement at the engineering school of their choice. The College at present has transfer agreements at the University of New Hampshire and Clarkson University, as well as individual transfer arrangements with engineering schools in New England and New York State. In both 2+2 and 3+2 programs, students are encouraged to complete certain engineering science introductory courses at the engineering school during the summer following their sophomore year.

Integrative Studies Requirements

40 credits minimum

Major Requirements

2+2 Program

28 credits

Students transferring after two years at Keene State College receive the appropriate bachelor's degree from their engineering school upon completion of engineering program requirements. Completion of engineering requirements usually takes between two and three years.

The following course list is a general guide. Additional courses are taken in specialty areas such as Chemistry, depending on the prospective engineering field, or to meet requirements of a particular engineering school.

Mathematics Courses

MATH 151, MATH 152, and MATH 251 Calculus Sequence
MATH 231 Linear Algebra and Differential Equations

Physics Courses

INPHYS 241, PHYS 242, University Physics I, II

Computer Science Courses

ISCS 140 Programming Foundations I

3+2 Program

40 credits

Students spend three years at Keene State and two years in engineering school and receive a BS in Math/Physics from Keene State College and an appropriate BS in Engineering. Keene State has a formal 3+2 transfer agreement with Clarkson University in Potsdam, New York. Students who wish to continue receiving Financial Aid must postpone graduation from Keene State until all requirements are fulfilled at both institutions.
