Mount Ida Students–We're Here For You

Western New England University is here to assist you in your search for a university that fits your goals, ambitions, and learning style. You can chart your own course while earning a degree of distinction.

Great news—it’s not too late to transfer! Our Transfer Admissions are rolling, which means you still have plenty of time to get your application in—we’ll even waive your application fee (with the waiver code WNEVIP)! 

Western New England University guarantees Mount Ida students:

  • an expedited admission decision
  • if accepted, a personalized, expedited transfer credit evaluation
  • Transfer Scholarships up to $16,000 for qualifying students
  • housing on campus. We will make every effort to accommodate special roommate requests.

Additionally, Mount Ida students who:

  • transfer to Western New England University as a full-time student for the fall 2018 semester
  • opt to live on campus
  • have a 2.5 cumulative GPA or higher

Will qualify for our highest Transfer Scholarship of $16,000 per year!

If you choose not to live on campus, we still offer generous Merit Scholarships.

Plus our cost is similar to Mount Ida, so why not consider joining our Golden Bear family?
