New Student Orientation

VirtuOwl Orientation (Incoming Students FALL 2020)

For all new students entering Keene State College for the Fall 2020 semester. This includes first year students, transfers, re-admits and commuters. Students are required to attend virtually via Zoom and we will provide virtual Zoom programs for parents/guardians/families of incoming students.

Once a new student pays their enrollment service fee they will receive an email to set up their KSC NetID and password. A confirmation email will be sent with instructions on how to log into your keene email. As students log into their keene email there should be a Housing/Dining Application and an Orientation Registration email. Students should access our Hootie’s How To’s for a checklist of what they need to complete throughout the summer in preparation for the fall.
