Welcome to the Power of 2!

Enrolling at Manchester Community College (MCC) 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 MCC (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.
