Please know that your college education remains a priority for us and we are here to help in your continuing academic pursuits in any way that we can. Specifically, the College has created a Transfer Services division, housed on the first floor of Mitton House, to assist you in your transition from Newbury. Transfer counselors will be assigned to every student. You will be notified of your transfer counselor at the end of the Add/Drop period for the spring semester.
Newbury College has officially entered into agreements with a number of local and regional institutions to ensure that you have access to a streamlined and expedited admission process, which includes housing (if applicable), transfer of all earned credits that meet minimum transfer requirements, carryover of your current GPA, and financial aid. The following institutions have executed agreements with Newbury College:
In addition to these institutions, we are also finalizing agreements with:
In addition to our transfer partner schools, we have identified additional institutions throughout New England with comparable academic programs for you to consider. These options should be discussed when you meet with your transfer counselor.
In an effort to familiarize students with their transfer school options, Newbury College will hosting three Transfer Fairs during the month of February:
All three events will take place in the Student Center Auditorium from 12-3 pm. In all, students will have the opportunity to meet with representatives from over 60 schools that have expressed an interest in enrolling our students.
In addition, Newbury also plans to bring schools onto campus for additional information sessions and to host information tables during luncheon hours in the dining hall.
For some of our partner schools, a separate “fast application” has been set up for students. In cases where there are not, the Common Application would be used. For all partner schools and some other institutions, the application fee may be waived.
For students in good academic and conduct standing, admission is guaranteed to all transfer partner schools in their relevant major.
Your Newbury financial aid package does not automatically carry over to your next school, however, financial aid is addressed in the majority of our transfer partner school agreements that efforts to create a comparable net cost for students. Please consult see the individual transfer partner school agreements for details on each, which can vary from schools matching all institutional aid funding, merit-funding only, or a percentage of net price.
To apply for a closed school loan discharge, you can either:
You must send your Closed School Loan Discharge Application to your federal student loan servicer. To find out who your loan servicer is log in to My Federal Student Aid or call 1-800-4-FED-AID (1-800-433-3243; TTY for the hearing impaired 1-800-730-8913).
If you do not meet the criteria for a loan discharge, you will be informed by your loan servicer and will need to continue making payments on your loans based on the terms of your promissory note.
Once Newbury College closes at the end of the Spring semester, Lasell College will become the official school of record, where all student files will be kept.
We encourage students to frequently visit the “Closure & Transfer” tab on the College’s web site as this will be the most current information available to students and their families, including details on the transfer agreements, resources to support the transfer process, and updates relating to additional partnerships and colleges coming on campus.
