Keene State College is a member of the New Hampshire College and University Council (NHCUC), a consortium of public and private educational institutions whose mission is to strengthen educational services and improve operating efficiencies among and between its member institutions.

The Student Exchange program is an opportunity for students in good academic, financial, and disciplinary standing to enroll in courses not offered at their home institution. The visiting student pays tuition to the home institution and may be required to pay fees to the host institution. Good academic standing is defined as follows:

  • For dual-enrollment at host and home campus the student must be in good academic standing as defined by the home institution
  • For participation in the ROTC program, the student must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.00

Arrangements for registration for such courses is made through the Registrar’s Office. The Host institution reserves the right to deny participation.
