Summer Program FAQ


Summer Programs at KSC

Summer is Smart at KSC!



When does registration start and end?

Registration for matriculated students begins on February 23 through MyKSC. All other students can register beginning February 24.  For all students, registration for full semester summer classes ends on May 16, the Friday before classes start. If you would like to register for a full summer course after that time, you need the written permission of your instructor. You can continue to register for weekend or late start classes up until the start of that class. If you are a matriculated KSC student, registering through April 14 means that you will be billed. Registering after April 14 means payment is due at the time you register.

What courses are available?

You can view a list of courses here.  Summer at KSC is designed to save you money as a full-time student. Courses in all different disciplines help you move your academic career ahead. Eighty percent of them are taught in the classroom with 20% blended, combining in-class and online learning. Summer is now a full campus experience at Keene State: housing and meal plans are available.

There's so many courses, how should I pick the ones that are the best for me?

We recommend that you discuss your selections with a faculty advisor.  Our list of classes by major is another good place to start.

KSC matriculated students enrolled during the summer session may be eligible to receive a combination of federal and private loans and/or federal and institutional grant programs such as the Federal Pell Grant and the Keene Tuition Scholarship.
