The Global Education Office (GEO) creates and supports opportunities for KSC faculty and students to undertake engaged learning in global settings. GEO works with KSC students who study away, incoming international exchange students, and faculty-led programs. Our students and faculty broaden their horizons around the world.
Students can participate in global academic experiences – from semester programs to summer options to faculty-led courses with an international component. The world can truly be your classroom! Study away can enhance your academic coursework and keep you on track to graduating on time, and many program options have the same tuition and fees as Keene State College.
The Global Education Office (GEO) is part of the campus team that supports incoming international and exchange students on our campus. Keene State College welcomes international students enthusiastically and we are proud of the personalized support we offer to each and every global student.
If you are an interested international student considering a degree option, please contact the Admissions office directly.
If you are an exchange student from one of our partner institutions, internationally or via the National Student Exchange, GEO is your primary support office on campus. More about International & Exchange Students
