Granite Guarantee at Keene State College
Keene State College is making a college education more affordable and more accessible to students, including an increase in scholarship funds by taking action on its commitment to access for first-year New Hampshire students, by offering the Granite Guarantee at Keene State. - Their Pledge to You.
Through this program, the College will ensure that scholarships and grants from Federal, State, and Keene State sources cover the full tuition of New Hampshire students who are Federal Pell Grant eligible and are first-year students, for all four years of their Keene State education. Students will need to remain enrolled full time at Keene State College, make satisfactory academic progress toward a degree, and continue to be eligible for the Pell Grant. The Granite Guarantee at Keene State will begin with first-year students in the 2018-19 academic year, and it will cover the $11,468 in-state tuition cost. If you have any questions regarding these programs, please contact their Admissions Office at 358-2276 or http://[email protected]/.

We strongly encouraged our students to gather financial aid and scholarship information that is appropriate for their own circumstances and college application process. Students should not necessarily let the price of a particular college discourage them from applying for admission. Many financial aid programs exist to help you meet all college costs: tuition, fees, books, room and board, personal expenses, and transportation.
Each college will present a "financial aid package" and this is determined by financial needs calculated from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Students and their parents should compare amounts and types of aid to determine which is the most beneficial to them. The FAFSA is available online and can be completed after January 1 of the student's senior year. Click here for more information on FAFSA

ACT Test Dates and Registration Deadlines The ACT is accepted for entrance and/or placement purposes by many colleges and universities. It consists of a series of four tests in the following areas: English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science. There is also an optional Writing Test which measures the student’s ability to plan and write a short essay; many colleges ask that students take the ACT with Writing. The tests are designed to provide an overall estimate of a student’s ability to succeed academically at the college level.
