Graduate Admission Process

Start Your Next Step

Students interested in graduate study must submit an application for admission and provide all required documentation based on their intended program of study. In order to register for a course(s) as a degree-seeking student, you must be accepted to the University.

Applicants for most programs can be considered for permission to register for a course(s) while his/her application is pending. Upon receiving permission to register, you can take up to six graduate credits under tentative status. You will be considered tentative status until your application is complete and an official admission decision is issued.

Financial aid is not available to students classified as tentative status. If your application is completed, and you are officially accepted into your program prior to the end of the term, you may be considered for federal and University financial aid at that time.

Students granted permission to register as a non-degree student must achieve a minimum of a “B” (3.0) in each course to be eligible for admission. Once admitted to the program, students must maintain a semester GPA of a “B” (3.0) in coursework completed at Western New England University.
