How Graduate Admission Decisions Are Made

The admission decision is based on the applicant’s undergraduate academic performance in combination with other evidence, such as official test scores submitted as part of the application. Applicants judged by the graduate admissions committee to be deficient in verbal, quantitative, or general academic preparation may be granted permission to register at the discretion of the committee. These students are allowed to take up to two courses as a nondegree student. Upon satisfying specified conditions a student will be reconsidered for admission. Conditions may include, but are not limited to, satisfactory completion of prerequisite courses; demonstrated academic performance in graduate courses at Western New England University; and satisfactory completion of undergraduate English and/or mathematics courses.
