175th Celebration

In 2012 the college celebrated 175 years as an institution of teaching and learning. Visit the 175th website for more information and to view photos of the events.

Colby-Sawyer College is a member of the New Hampshire College and University Council, an academic consortium which includes Daniel Webster College, Franklin Pierce University, Keene State College, New England College, Plymouth State College, Rivier College, Saint Anselm College, Southern New Hampshire University, and the University of New Hampshire.

Altogether more than 20,000 students are enrolled in consortium institutions. These students are able to benefit from student and faculty exchange, special workshops and seminars, enlarged library resources, and full- and part-time study on other consortium campuses.

Qualified students, with appropriate approval of the registrar, may enroll in one or more courses or for the fall or spring semester (excluding summer) in residence at one of the NHCUC institutions listed above on a space-available basis. Such study is considered Colby-Sawyer sponsored and may be used to meet the Residence Requirement. The registrar must approve all courses prior to enrollment and students must earn a minimum grade of C (2.00) to receive transfer credit. Credit hours and grades will be recorded on the student's transcript and calculated into the student's GPA.

No extra financial charge is made other than special course fees, such as laboratory fees. Students must provide their own transportation and, when applicable, must make their own arrangements for room and board at the institution they intend to visit. The consortium network of schools offers the variety of courses usually found only on a large university campus but retains the small-college environment with respect to academic support, residency, social life, and student development opportunities.
