CONCORD — A new "dual admission" program has been developed for students to take courses at N.H. community colleges, then transfer to state colleges and universities to earn a bachelor's degree.
Students can enroll for the fall 2015 semester at any of N.H.'s seven community colleges and be jointly admitted to pathway programs at the University of New Hampshire, Plymouth State University, UNH-Manchester, Keene State College, and Granite State College. Advisers will work with each student to map out a course of study.
Students will earn an associate degree at a community college. If they maintain at least a 2.5 grade point average and meet the program requirements, they could continue at the university system to pursue a bachelor's degree.
