Want real value for the real world?

Western New England University has been ranked #5 in the nation and #1 in Massachusetts when it comes to preparing graduates for the job market! The report from Zippia.com analyzed data from the federal College Scorecard. Looking at employment rates 10 years after students who receive federal financial aid graduate, WNE's employment rate ranked at 95.56%. And our graduates earn excellent salaries. The Federal College Scorecard also shows Western New England students earn an average of $6,916 a year more than 80% of the other schools where our applicants typically consider enrolling.

Nationally Ranked
The University has also been ranked in the Top 3% as a best value by The Economist magazine, as a U.S. News and World Report 2019 National University (moving from its previous "regional" status) and among its Best Undergraduate Engineering Programs. The University is now classified among Doctoral/Professional Universities by Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education.

Merit Aid for High School Performance
Through the Western New England University Merit Aid program, first year students are awarded scholarship money for high school academic achievement. For transfer students, scholarships are based on college grades. In many cases, the net costs (after considering all forms of financial aid and fees) are competitive with the cost of attending a state-supported institution.

Save More When You Graduate On Time
We have a strong record of keeping annual increases in tuition and fees as low as possible and are committed to helping our students graduate in four years, which can save them $60,000 to $120,000 in additional educational costs and potential lost earnings from delayed entry into the job market.

The Office of Enrollment Services: Bursar • Financial Aid • Registrar
The friendly staff members at the Office of Enrollment Services are here to assist students and parents seeking guidance about the financial aid process, billing, and more. Enrollment Services combines the traditional offices of bursar, financial aid, and registrar in one convenient location. Stop in, email us, or give us a call.

Applying for Federal Aid

You should complete and submit the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.gov. A helpful tutorial can be found at www.finaid.ucsb.edu/FAFSASimplification.
