Academic and Career Advising

When does my student need to do to declare his/her major and how do they do it?
To officially declare a major, a student must file a Declaration of Major form signed by a faculty member. It is in the student’s best interest to declare a major by the time they have earned 60 credits. The forms are available in Academic & Career Advising.

How do new students get an advisor?
Upon admission to Keene State College, if a student has indicated a program of interest, he or she is directed to that department for advising. If a student is undecided about a program, he or she is directed to the Academic and Career Advising Center in Elliot Center. Academic and career advisors assist the undecided students, aided by college staff members and peer advisors.

New students will receive the name of their advisor at Orientation. If the student is joining KSC mid-year, the chair of the department associated with the student's educational goal will generally make the first contact.

How does my student know what classes to take?
Requirements for each major are spelled out in the catalog (available online atwww.keene.edu/catalog). Students check their progress on paper using Program Planning sheets or online in their MyKSC account using Program Evaluation. For students who have not declared a major, taking classes in any area that interests them is a great way to explore. Have them ask their advisor.

How many credits does my student need to take per semester to be considered a full time student?
At least 12 credits are required for full-time status. Full time status affects eligibility for financial aid, athletics, on campus housing and so on. A Bachelor of Arts degree requires 120 credits and a Bachelor of Science degree requires 124 credits. In order to complete either degree in four years, you will need approximately 16 credits per semester, unless you supplement with summer classes.

What career support is available?
Through individual appointments, workshops, special events, programs and online resources, Career Services offer students a comprehensive career planning process which includes setting educational and career goals, exploring opportunities for experiential learning, developing professional resumes and cover letters, practicing interview skills, identifying job search strategies and making career choices that result in enhancing the sense of meaning and purpose in their lives.

Campus Safety and Parking

How safe is the KSC campus?
Keene State College is located in Keene, a quiet New England City of 23,000 residence with a very low crime rate. Because of our environment, KSC is not subject to most of the problems of a large city campus; however, we are insulated from crime. We encourage members of community to partner with us in identifying risks and decreasing the opportunities for crime.  Campus Safety is an integral part of campus life and officers are on duty 24 hours a day, year round, patrolling campus and responding to emergencies and requests for assistance.

Where is Campus Safety?
Campus Safety is located in Keddy House. Keddy House is on Wyman Way.

Is there anywhere I can go to learn about Campus Crime statistics?
Keene State College complies with the Clery Act and updates campus crime statistics and policy information annually. This information is available at www.keene.edu/policy/crimereport.pdf. Paper and large-print copies are available at Campus Safety located in Keddy House. Campus Safety maintains a daily log that is available for viewing during normal business hours or you can view the weekly log on our blog.

Who do I call in case of an emergency?
Your student can call Campus Safety at 358-2228 or 911 or use a blue-light phone on campus. Officers are on duty 24 hours a day and are trained to respond to various types of emergencies.

What kinds of enforcement does Campus Safety program provide?
Campus Safety Officers have the full authority granted by Keene State College to enforce all KSC policies and regulations as outlined in the student handbook and other publications. They have the authority request identification and will immediately involve the Keene Police Department if criminal activity is observed or reported.

While the Keene State officers do not have arrest powers, they have a cooperative relationship with the Keene Police Department ensuring protection for community members. In addition, the Keene Police Department actively monitors and records criminal activity at off-campus locations.

Are there safety escorts available?
Campus Safety operates a safety escort service 24 hours a day that is available to all KSC students, faculty, and staff. Escorts are limited to on-campus locations. Escorts may walk or drive and are provided on a staff-available basis. There may be times when your student is asked to wait at their location until an officer is available. Your student should call the Department of Campus Safety at 603-358-2228 or stop in to Grafton House to request an escort.

Do you have an emergency notification system in place?
Keene State College has contracted with Avtex, Inc. to offer the City Watch Emergency Notification System to the Keene State community. The system is designed to send emergency messages to enrolled campus members via SMS (text) message, cellular telephone and/or e-mail when circumstances dictate. The City Watch system is part of the College's overall communication plan.

The Emergency Notification System (ENS) will be used primarily when a situation exists that presents an imminent danger to the campus and/or to notify the College's Emergency Operations Group of an incident. An "imminent danger" is one that threatens the immediate safety of the campus community, is not anticipated, and failure to provide such a warning may result in serious harm. Examples of such emergencies are a tornado, a chemical or hazardous material spill, or an armed and actively violent person. ENS messages will not be used unless the situation is determined to be imminent and requires immediate action. ENS messages may also be used to notify the campus community about curtailed campus operations.

Who can enroll in the emergency notification system?
Students, faculty, staff and parents may enroll in the notification program. Enrollment information is provided to all new Keene State College students prior to and during Fall Orientation via e-mail.

Enrollment is open at all times and is available on the Department of Campus Safety webpage atwww.keene.edu/campussafety/ens.cfm. Individuals who choose to enroll will complete the online registration form and submit the information to City Watch.

Parking

As a parent, can I park on campus when I come to visit?
Yes, however you will need to stop at the Campus Safety office, and show a photo ID to receive a visitor permit. A one-day, daytime visitor permit (valid until midnight of that day) is available, and will allow the guest to park in the Visitor's Lot (located next to Keddy  House) the Winchester lot, or in another location designated by the Department of Campus Safety.

Where can we load and unload materials from our car?
With Move in day as an exception (your student will receive specific instructions about move in day unloading), a number of spaces across campus have been designated as loading/unloading zones. All other stopping or parking must abide by the rules and regulations in force at the time. An unattended vehicle left with flashers on or off that is parked inappropriately will be ticketed and/or towed.

Can first-year students bring cars?
Unfortunately, parking is extremely limited and therefore first-year residential students are not permitted to bring their cars to campus. There are independently owned parking lots throughout Keene within walking distance of campus that provide parking for a fee.

How will my student get around Keene without a car?
Many businesses are within walking distance to the campus. The City Express bus, which is free to Keene State students, goes to several shopping areas in Keene. “Green Bikes” are available for check-out through the Mason Library using the Keene Link Library Card. Helmets are also available.

Center for Health and Wellness

What does my student need to do to be seen by someone at the Center for Health and Wellness?
The Center for Health and Wellness are an appointment based clinic and appointments can be scheduled Monday through Friday 8:00 to 11:45 and from 1:00 - 4:30 by calling 358-2450. The clinic is closed between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm. Students are seen by appointment. Students who walk in without an appointment will be triaged by a registered nurse and scheduled into the next available slot. Students with an identified emergency will be seen immediately. If there is an emergency, please call 911.

What type of services can I expect my student to receive from the Center for Health and Wellness?
Through our staff of nurse practitioners, registered nurses, health educators, and a part-time physician we provide acute medical care for all Keene State College students. Services provided include: illness evaluation, first aid, laboratory services, birth control education and supplies, dietary/nutrition consultation, annual gynecological examinations, STD testing, mental health referral, referral to on-campus resources (counseling, academic support, student activities), pregnancy testing, counseling, referrals to specialists in the community if necessary and health education on all health-related topics.

What information does my student need to submit?
The Center for Health and Wellness requires all students to submit a complete the following health forms: Comprehensive Student Health, Immunization, Tuberculosis Screening, and a physical form. These forms are due on July 1st for fall admittance and January 15th for spring admittance. Any student who fails to meet this requirement will have a hold placed on their student account which will prevent them from registering for their classes. The health forms can be downloaded at www.keene.edu/chw/forms.cfm. Any additional records that may be helpful concerning existing medical and/or psychological conditions are critical. With the permission of the student, we are willing to work collaboratively with their primary-care physician.

What does the care offered through the Center for Health and Wellness cost?
The cost of the student’s visit is covered by their Student Health Fee. However, in the event that their medical concern requires laboratory testing, on site prescriptions or an outside referral, those costs are the student’s responsibility. The Center does not bill personal health insurance. These costs can be paid at the time of service through credit/debit cards or echeck. If the charges are not paid they will be placed on the student's account in the Bursar's Office. Students always have the right to refuse treatment that would incur these costs. Although health insurance is not required, it is highly recommended so that the student will be covered for services beyond the scope of our department.

What if my student gets sick or injured on the weekend or at night?
For after-hours care, they need to contact the Emergency Care Center, Cheshire Medical Center, 580 Court St., Keene, 603-354-6600. The Emergency Care Center is open 24 hours a day, every day.

Is my student’s health information kept confidential?
Complete confidentiality is maintained at the Center for Health and Wellness. We do not disclose any health-related information to anyone, including parents, without the student’s written permission. We encourage students to include parents in any referrals outside of our department, and we are available to discuss student’s care with parents however we must have the student written permission first.

How does my student access local medical services?Students who need non-emergency services from the local clinic or hospital can get there using the City Express (free to KSC students) or by taxi.

Counseling Center

What types of services does the Counseling Center provide to students?
The Counseling Center is here to support the psychological health and well-being of every student. No issue is too big or too small to bring to us. Common issues range from college adjustment, getting along with roommates, and parent or romantic relationship problems to sexual abuse or assault, depression, and anxiety. If something is bothering your student and talking to his/her family and friends is not enough, we encourage students to make an appointment with one of our counselors to see which of our services might best fit their needs.

When should my student seek out the support of the Counseling Center?
The Counseling Center is here to support the psychological health and well-being of every student. No issue is too big or too small to bring to us. Common issues range from college adjustment, getting along with roommates, and parent or romantic relationship problems to sexual abuse or assault, depression, and anxiety. If something is bothering your student and talking to his/her family and friends is not enough, we encourage students to make an appointment with one of our counselors to see which of our services might best fit their needs.

If my student comes to counseling, how can I found out about what’s going on or how they’re doing?
The best way to find out what’s happening is to talk directly with your student. Confidentiality laws prohibit the Counseling Center from providing you with any information about a student’s contact, or lack of it, with the Counseling Center without their written permission. We also believe that for students to truly benefit from our services, first and foremost, they must feel comfortable to talk openly about their concerns without fear that others may find out what they’ve said. This means that no faculty, administrators, friends, or even parents are permitted access to information about your student’s counseling sessions. The only exceptions are when there is a situation of imminent,
life-threatening harm to self or others, or if the student provides written consent to release information. If you have information about your student that you think is necessary for his/her counselor to have, call the Counseling Center and ask to talk to the Director. Although he cannot tell you anything about your student, the director will be happy to take your information and let your student’s counselor know.

How does my student make an appointment?
Initial appointments may be made by calling the Counseling Center at 358-2437 or by visiting the office. Students must make appointments for themselves. RA’s, parents, or faculty cannot make appointments for students. Clients will be seen for an initial meeting within one week. If the student feels that they can't wait to see a counselor, let the Center know. They will schedule a crisis appointment for you as soon as possible.

What should my student do if they have a psychological emergency and the office is closed?
If your student lives on campus, they should first contact the RA on duty in the student’s residence hall. The RA will help your student assess the situation and figure out what services are needed. To contact a counselor over the phone, your student can call our crisis line, 603-358-2436. They will be connected with a counselor who will assist them with the emergency. If you are talking with your student and you do not feel they are safe or if your student has a friend that they think is in imminent danger, call Campus Safety at 603-358-2228.

Can my student get their medications for psychological concerns prescribed on campus?
If your student has medical insurance, the Counseling Center strongly encourages them to see their doctor at home to prescribe and monitor their psychotropic medications. If it is not possible for your student to obtain your medications through his/her home physician, the Center can provide limited psychiatric services.

Dining Services

What meal plans are available?
Based on student feedback and the need for increased flexibility, two of the campus’ meal plans will change for the 2013-2-14 school year. The 19 Meal Plan (with and without additional Meal Plan Dollars) will become the Ultimate Meal Plan. This plan will allow unlimited access (entrances) to the Dining Commons during hours of operation for all resident students required to be on a meal plan. The Five Meal Plan will be replaced by the 120 Meal Block Plan. This plan will provide the student with 120 meals for use throughout the semester or an average of eight meals per week. These meals can be used at any time and as many per day as needed. Should the student require more meals, additional blocks of 40 meals will be available.  The 12 Meal Plan will remain the same.

Are there many food options?
In the Dining commons there are many stations to choose from. Every day there is a hot meal, vegan selections, grilled items, pizza, salad, soup and cereal. Throughout the week the individual options change.
Dining Services is continues to expand the variety of options available for students with special dietary needs. In addition to indications on station signage when a potential allergen is present, the Dining team is now posting available menu options that are served throughout the Dining Commons. Dining Services has provided an informational session for all concerned students that will highlight the steps being taken to insure their needs are met.  Staff has been trained and will continue to be monitored throughout the semester.

What happens if the student runs out of Dining Dollars on their OWL card?
Individuals who are not on the meal plan but who would like to eat at ANY of our dining locations may use the Dining Dollars option. Dining Dollars deposits can be made in any amount at the Owl Card Office (ID Office); Use your OwlCard to spend your Dining Dollars. Owl Card Office is located in the Zorn Dining Commons Lobby. They are open Monday-Friday from 9:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

The Federal Work Study Program is financed by both federal and institutional funds. The Financial Aid office posts employment opportunities on their website, but there is a limited number of positions available. Also remember that, if you do receive a work-study job, you will receive a check for your wages, and it's your responsibility to apply that money towards your academic expenses. The College does not automatically apply your wages towards your tuition or any other KSC fees.

On campus employment opportunities can be viewed here: http://www.keene.edu/admissions/aid/employment/


 

Information Technology

How does my student learn what is going on campus? How are they reminded of deadlines, etc?

MyKSC includes personal tools (e-mail, calendars, web pages and task lists), as well as community tools (KSC clubs, campus announcements and news items). Keene State College will use MyKSC to inform students of important deadlines, dates and events, such as registration timelines, housing selection processes, financial aid deadlines, etc.

Does the college provide a space on the KSC network for students to save their work?
Yes, MyKSC provides students with 50MB of file storage space where documents can be stored safely. This allows them to access their documents from any computer that has access to the web. Students should also consider additional file storage devices such as a flash drive, external hard drive or burning to a CD/DVD. Having a back-up of important documents will protect you if you ever experience computer issues and cannot retrieve your information.

Is there wireless on campus? What does my student need to do to access internet on campus?
All academic buildings and residence halls have wireless access on campus. The Mason Library, L.P. Young Student Center and parts of other campus are currently wireless.

Yes, the IT Group HelpDesk is available to assist students with their technology needs. They can call the HelpDesk at 358-2532, stop by their office on the 2nd floor of Elliot Hall, email helpdesk@keene.eduor visit their website www.keene.edu/helpdesk which has many tutorials and added information.

Are there computers for students to do their papers?
Yes, all 36 laptops are loaded with Microsoft Office as are the 20 computers located in the library classroom (Room 104). Additionally, students can use the 27 public computers for browsing the Internet or accessing the library’s online catalog or e-mail. The Parents Association was able to work with the Mason Library and created a collaborative work space in the West wing of the library where students can utilize technology and work together.

Registrar's Office

What is the Registrar's Office responsible for?
The Registrar’s Office maintains and verifies academic records for all students and issues transcripts for students taking credit courses at KSC. The office is responsible for: course registration, Web Advisor, enrollment verification, grade reports, academic degree audits, transcripts, calculating GPAs, final exam schedules and more.

What is FERPA?
Family Education Right and Privacy Act
Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) protects the privacy of student education records and grants students certain rights regarding the records. Parents are often surprised to learn that FERPA bars parent’s access to their child’s educational records without their child’s consent. However, parents of dependent (Internal Revenue Code) students may receive a copy of the student's semester grade report by completing and submitting a Parental Grade Report form found as a link on the Registrar’s office forms page. The Registrar's Office keeps that consent on file and it remains in effect until the Office is notified, the student leaves the College or graduates from the College.
