New England Regional Student Program
Students who are legal residents of any of the other NEW ENGLAND states (ME, NH, VT, RI, CT) may be eligible for admission under the auspices of the New England Regional Student Program. The NERSP provides an opportunity to earn a degree in approved curricula not offered at the resident’s own state institutions. Eligible students (entering freshmen or transfers) are charged the in-state tuition rate (plus 50%), so long as they remain in a major open to them under the NERSP. The $50 out-of-state application fee must be paid, however. For more information, contact the Admissions Office or the New England Board of Higher Education, 45 Temple Place, Boston, MA 02111.
Part-time students are those enrolled in fewer than 12 credits per semester. International students on visas are not eligible for part-time status. Students seeking part-time enrollment in the Stockbridge School must contact the Stockbridge School Office.
Applicants with Disabilities
Any information provided by an applicant is confidential and will not adversely affect the University’s admission decision.
Veterans are considered under regular admissions policies. All veterans may submit a copy of the DD214 or 2586 to verify potential credits earned for military experience. Do not submit the original, as this document will be needed at a later date to establish eligibility for GI Bill benefits. If still on active duty, submit the copy when you are released. For more information, contact the Dean of Students Office, tel. (413) 545-2684.
International students are eligible for fall admission only unless they are currently enrolled in a U.S. college. TOEFL scores, a sponsor statement, and a bank statement must be submitted.
