Frequently Asked Questions

Am I a transfer student?
If you’ve applied to and enrolled at any post-secondary college or university, you are a transfer applicant. Even if you took only one course or did not complete a semester, you are considered a transfer student.

Can I earn credit for previous learning?
To see how your credits will transfer to Keene State, visit our transfer database. We may also award credit for other skills and experiences. If you are a veteran or an adult learner, your previous jobs and responsibilities might be considered equivalent to a course. Ask us how your experiences might transfer to college credits.

Can I afford Keene State College?
You know that college is an important investment in your future – and we completely agree. That’s why helping you to afford college is a priority for us at Keene State. We’re here to help you find ways to reduce the cost of your education by offering competitive tuition, Transfer Merit Scholarships, and other financial aid to help cover the difference. Please submit your Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible, preferably well before the March 1 deadline to maximize the amount of aid you may receive. If you are a New Hampshire student, the Transfer Granite Guarantee is also available. If you are a veteran, Keene State College is part of the Yellow Ribbon Program and we have additional resources available for you.
