New Student Orientation

Owl Orientation (Incoming Students Fall 2021)

For all new students entering Keene State College for the Fall 2021 semester. This includes first year students, transfers, re-admits and commuters. Students are required to attend and 1 parent/guardian is strongly encouraged to attend, as we run a con-current program.

As we continue to navigate through COVID, students and their 1 parent/guardian will be required to bring a Negative PCR test with them. If a negative PCR test cannot be produced we will not be able to have the student and parent/guardian stay for the program.

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. Towards the end of March there will be a Housing/Dining Application and an Orientation Registration email sent to the students KSC email. Students should access our Hootie’s How To’s for a checklist of what they need to complete between now and August in preparation for the fall semester.

All Owl Orientation Programs will be a 1 day program, students should sign up for 1 that both they and 1 parent/guardian can attend.
