What To Do Right Away

File your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). March 1 is the preferred deadline, but we continue to award merit scholarships, and financial aid on an ongoing basis. Filing your FAFASA as soon as possible will ensure that you get the most financial aid possible. And, Keene State will give you a $500 grant just for filing your FAFSA.

FAFSA form will be available on January 1, 2024.

Set up your Keene State email account as soon as you receive an email from our IT group. Starting in February 2024, you’ll get information about setting up your Keene State email two days after paying your enrollment deposit. This will be sent to you via the email you provided on your application. Once you have set your password, a confirmation email will be sent to you with next steps on accessing your Keene State accounts such as registration for Orientation and your housing application. Be sure to log in, and keep checking regularly as important information and updates will be shared with you and many need you to take steps by a certain date.
