Granite State College is an institution of the University System of New Hampshire. The College provides flexibility, value and state-wide accessibility to higher education throughout New Hampshire. Founded in 1972, and headquartered in Concord, the college is designed for adult learners who seek alternatives to traditional campus-based programs. One of the primary ways the College is attempting to facilitate this is through distance education and electronic learning (online) classes. GSC was originally named the College for Lifelong Learning, but was officially renamed on May 9, 2005. The College is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC). Because the College is an institution that serves learners where they live and work, Granite State College operates a network of nine statewide learning centers, and courses are offered at more than 40 additional community sites, as well as online. In addition to the College's Concord, New Hampshire headquarters, it maintains learning centers in Berlin, Claremont, Conway, Lebanon, Littleton, Manchester, Portsmouth, and Rochester. The college offers tailor-made academic programs and courses, and a range of learner services, all designed with non-traditional students in mind. Granite State College offers an array of bachelor's and associate degree options and certificates, along with off-campus access to select Plymouth State University graduate degrees and the University of New Hampshire's Registered Nurse program. Courses are available in the evenings, on weekends, during the day, and online. Empire State College, in New York, and Charter Oak State College, in Connecticut, offer programs for adult learners utilizing a method similar to Granite State College.
