Graduate Certificate Programs

Enhance Your Skills

When to Apply for Admission
Western New England University has a "rolling" admissions policy, not a set admission deadline, which gives you greater flexibility in applying. Admission decisions are typically released within two to three weeks of your application becoming complete. The University urges prospective students to apply as early as possible in relation to the anticipated start date.

Admission Requirements
A baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education with a grade point average (GPA) of at least a 3.0(B) is typically required for admission to a graduate certificate program.  Applicants with a GPA below a 3.0 will be considered on a case-by-case basis.  The Engineering Certificate programs require a baccalaureate degree in engineering, or a closely related field.
