Welcome to Granite State College. We are very proud of the caliber of our faculty and staff and value your contributions towards our goal of providing high-quality education to students across New Hampshire.

Created in 1963, the University System incorporates five separate campuses (the University of New Hampshire at Durham and Manchester, Keene State College, Plymouth State University, and Granite State College), all affiliated under a single system that is governed by a Board of Trustees. Granite State College is one of New Hampshire's top colleges for adult learners looking to expand their intellectual and professional boundaries. We take pride in the quality of education we provide. Our degree and certificate programs are designed specifically with the working student in mind, making it possible to complete a degree or certificate entirely online. With extensive online courses, face-to-face offerings, credit awarded for prior learning, and select competency-based programs, we are committed to providing the highest degree of accessibility for adult students of all ages and working professionals. We promote a work environment that is both equitable and rewarding.

Thank you for joining Granite State College. I encourage you to take full advantage of the learning and growth opportunities that the College has to offer.
