Joint Admissions

The Joint Admissions Program is offered in collaboration with the following community colleges: Berkshire, Greenfield, Holyoke and Springfield Technical. The 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 maximize 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 2.3 cumulative grade point average (based on a 4.0 scale) and either the 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.
