Transfer Articulation Agreements

Transfer articulation agreements have been arranged between Western New England University and various community and junior colleges. Associate’s degree graduates who have followed the prescribed programs of study at these specific institutions may be able to complete requirements for baccalaureate degrees in two years at Western New England University.


The Joint Admissions Program is designed to facilitate the transfer of students earning an associate’s degree from a designated community college. Eligible students are conditionally accepted to Western New England University upon enrolling in the program. An emphasis is placed on advisement to ensure the maximum transfer credit is applied towards an approved major, and to ensure a smooth transition to Western New England University. Participating students must earn a minimum 2.50 cumulative grade point average (based on a 4.0 scale) and either an associate’s degree or a minimum of sixty (60) semester hours. Students are subject to the same transfer credit restrictions that apply to traditional applicants.

The Joint Admissions Program is offered in collaboration with the following:

  • Berkshire Community College
  • Greenfield Community College
  • Holyoke Community College
  • Springfield Community College
