Addendum to 2019-2020 Catalogue

While every attempt has been taken to ensure the accuracy of the catalogue, sometimes changes must be made throughout the year that are in the interest of the students and/or the University.

This addendum details recent changes made after the posting of the 2019-2020 catalogue.



WNEU 2019-2020 Catalogue Addendum

Effective immediately with the 2019-2020 academic year, the following applies to all WNEU students:

Veterans Benefits and Transition Act of 2018 S.2248 Section 103.1(b).

Eligible students using Veteran Educational Benefits from chapter 31, Vocational Rehabilitation, or chapter 33, Post-9/11 benefits will not be penalized a late charge, nor be denied the ability to attend class due to delayed funding from the VA disbursements. Eligible students are those who have provided the School Certifying Official a valid Certificate of Eligibility and a statement of intent to use their educational benefit for the term in question.


Reactivation Procedure
Students who wish to return to Western New England University after an absence of one or more full semesters (fall or spring), may do so by submitting a Request for Reactivation Form to their Dean’s Office. Students who wish to return to the University but change their major should also submit a Request for Change of Academic Program Form, along with the Request for Reactivation Form, to the Dean’s Office of the program in which they wish to enroll.
Students must also submit official transcripts to Enrollment Services (for work completed) and unofficial transcripts (for work in progress) from all school(s) attended since leaving WNE. Reactivation may be contingent upon successful completion of coursework taken while away from the University.

Students are academically eligible to return if they left WNE in Good Standing, on Academic Warning, Academic Probation, or if they completed any mandated Academic Suspension. Students who were academically dismissed are ineligible for reactivation since this status is a permanent separation from the University.

Students readmitted to the University after an absence of at least one year will follow the degree requirements outlined by the catalogue in effect at the time of re-enrollment.

In order to be eligible for Priority Registration, students are encouraged to submit all required paperwork by February 1 for Summer or Fall reentry, or by September 15 for Winter or Spring reentry.
