Your Path, Your Way

Every undergraduate student comes to a degree program with a unique set of circumstances, skills, and expectations. But they all share one key attribute: Hope. They’re ready to explore and experience a new direction that will take them to a place they’ve only envisioned. At New England Tech, we give a foundation to that hope, and the education and support to reach that destination. We welcome students from all backgrounds and offer flexibility in our scheduling so you can join us when you’re ready.

Our university admissions process is as easy as possible, thanks to our experienced Admissions Officers who are ready to help you in any way. To make an appointment to meet with an Admissions Officer, please call 401-739-5000 or walk in any time.
