Joint Admissions Program

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 associates degree from a designated community college. Participating students must earn a minimum 2.3 cumulative grade point average (based on a 4.0 scale in one of the designated majors), and either the associate degree or a minimum of sixty (60) semester hours. Students are subject to the same transfer credit restrictions that apply to traditional applicants.

What are the benefits of the program?

  • You will have a structured plan to help facilitate your transfer to Western New England University that includes advisement opportunities with a Western New England University representative while you are enrolled at your community college.
  • Ultimately you will earn your bachelor's degree from Western New England University.
