Welcome to the Power of 2!

Enrolling at Great Bay Community College (GBCC) is the first step toward earning an associate degree and a bachelor’s degree through the New Hampshire Dual Admission Program. DualNH provides a seamless academic pathway from GBCC (or any of the NH community colleges) to one of the institutions of the University System of New Hampshire (University of New Hampshire, Keene State, Plymouth State and Granite State) in a broad range of programs.*

Students in the DualNH program will receive special academic advising to chart a seamless transfer pathway.

*Program pathways include most liberal arts degrees and also, depending on the specific colleges, other programs outside of liberal arts. An advisor can work with you to determine which programs are part of DualNH and which may be accessible through other types of transfer agreements between the institutions.

Here’s how you get started:

  1. Apply to GBCC
  2. Once you have been accepted and complete a placement test, you will meet with a GBCC advisor to learn more.
  3. Sign a Dual Admission Program agreement outlining the program requirements. Admission to the University System of New Hampshire is guaranteed by maintaining a 2.5 grade point average and earning a grade of C or better in every course, while remaining in good standing.

It is important to talk to an academic advisor as you plan your courses. Connect with the Advising & Transfer Department.
