Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.89 Average Rating
Tuition and housing isn't too expensive for in-state or out-of-state students. Many students say the out-of-state tuition is the same as the in-state price in their home state. It is definitely worth the money!
Sam from Londonderry, NH
Keene State is not a very pricey school, but for some families it is. I feel that for what I pay to attend, I am very welcome and receive a variety of good resources. I would encourage anyone who is interested to come to Keene.
Danielle from Londonderry, NH
A little pricey for out of state but the quality of the colleges resources are worth it.
Alicia from Dunstable, MA
Its kind of expensive, but thats because I'm an out-of-state student and I've been taking out loans.
Jennifer from East Bridgewater, MA
Overall, Keene isn't very expensive compared to other schools. Don't let the sticker price scare you away. They often give out scholarships to help you lower the price. The classes are rewarding and worth the price. It's a small school where teachers will email you personally and know you by name, which is something a lot of larger schools can't offer.
Mikayla from Mansfield Center, CT
Say what you will about state schools, but they're wallet friendly. KSC has great financial aid and tons of scholarships and grants, and is so affordable, especially for in state students.
Mariah from Nashua, NH
Cobblestone Ale House has a good menu at prices the average college kid can afford and the staff if fun and welcoming.
Did I mention sizzlers? The Night Owl Cafe on campus has these awsome wraps to incredible to even describe, not to mention the free popcorn and soda.
The great outdoors, hiking up Mt. Monadnock, fresh air, beautiful scenery, and exercise, FREE!
Ellen from Bartlett, IL
This school is very cheap compared to other schools in the U.S. Teachers have same education levels as elite schools if not higher.
