That's right, 'tis the season for reading applications! So far there have been a ton of applications to read. Counselors are doing their best to keep up with all the applications, and so far so good. For those of you who haven't submitted your application yet, you should know that Western New England College works on a rolling admissions basis. This means that we read applications as they come in so the sooner you submit an application, the sooner you will receive a decision from us.
When you apply to Western New England College you also are automatically considered for merit scholarship. We determine merit scholarship by combining your grades over the course of four years with your standardized test scores (either ACTs or SATs). You can find out what you can expect to receive in terms of a merit scholarship by visiting our website and clicking on the scholarship calculator (located on the right-hand side of all our prospective student pages). Merit scholarship is separate from financial aid, as finances are not taken into consideration when it comes to merit scholarship. For financial aid the only form that WNEC requires is the FAFSA form which is available beginning Jan. 1, 2011.
Now that you know what happens after submitting your application, now it's time to apply! Hopefully we'll see your application soon!
