NHTI / Plymouth State Enter Transfer Agreement

CONCORD — In January 2015, NHTI, Concord’s Community College and Plymouth State University (PSU) signed a suite of agreements to smooth the way for NHTI education students who wish to pursue bachelor’s degrees at PSU.

About one-third of NHTI’s students transfer to four year colleges or universities after graduating.  Normally, however, such transfers have to be worked out between the schools on a case-by-case basis, with the receiving school making the final decision as to how many of the student’s associate degree credits will be accepted towards the bachelor’s degree.

NHTI to Host Girls Technology Day

CONCORD — On Wednesday March 18, NHTI-Concord’s Community College, will proudly host the third annual Girls Technology Day (GTD), an initiative of the New Hampshire Department of Education’s Career Development Bureau.  In New Hampshire, and across the country, there is a severe shortage of women pursuing technical careers.  Fewer than two percent of students pursuing computer science degrees in NH colleges, for example, are women.  Girls Technology Day is one step toward trying to reverse that trend.

NHTI Students’ Research Will Benefit Sycamore Garden

NHTI / SNHU Enter Dual Enrollment Agreement

CONCORD — For NHTI students interested in going on for a bachelor’s degree after they graduate, the path just got a lot smoother.  NHTI, Concord’s Community College, and Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) have partnered in a new dual admission agreement that can make the transfer of NHTI graduates to an SNHU bachelor’s degree program a near-automatic, virtually seamless process.
