- Since I can’t attend an open house, how can I learn more about the college?
All of NH’s community colleges have ways to learn more about the campus, programs and student life opportunity at each location, and more are being developed each week.
https://ccsnh.college-tour.com/homepage.php offers short videos of each college as well as overviews of topics such as transfer and serving adult learners.
You can find other videos and virtual tours on many of the college sites.
- How can I get help completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)?
The first step to applying for any form of financial aid is to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Once this application is completed, you will receive a Student Aid Report from the Department of Education that will indicate your eligibility. This information will also be sent to Colleges you selected to receive your report on the FAFSA, and once awarded, you can see your award on SIS.
- SAT testing dates this spring have been cancelled. Will that affect my application?
While NH’s community colleges do not require SATs or ACTs for admissions, scores may be used in lieu of the ACCUPLACER placement exam offered by CCSNH. Contact the Admissions Office at the individual college you wish to enroll at to learn more.
- I am unable to submit my official transcript, will that affect my application?
If you are unable to submit a copy of your official transcript at this time, we will accept an unofficial copy. As soon as you are able to, please submit an official copy to the Admissions office.
- Does CCSNH have 100% online courses? Yes, all 7 colleges host 100% online classes. Visit https://www.ccsnh.edu/admissions/online-learning/ for more information.
