How to Apply


New England College’s School of Graduate and Professional Studies follows a rolling admissions policy. The admissions committee for each degree program reviews applications when they are completed. Applicants are encouraged to use the graduate online application, found on the New England College website.

All graduate programs require a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 2.75 on a 4.0 scale, or a demonstrated ability (typically a combination of academic and professional achievement) to succeed in a rigorous graduate program.

Applicants who do not hold an earned undergraduate degree or meet all criteria generally required for admission on the date of the application may be enrolled, but not admitted, at the discretion of the admissions committee for each degree program. The admission decision will specify the conditions for admission to a School of Graduate and Professional Studies degree program. Such enrollments, including non‐applicants who elect to take courses, are typically restricted to a maximum of nine credits.
