If you are currently enrolled at or were recently accepted to Newbury College and are impacted by the news of its intention to close, Johnson & Wales University’s Providence Campus is here for you.

We extend a welcome to any student who wishes to consider a JWU education. We share many common academic interests (explore our current academic majors at JWU) and our Admissions team will work directly with students to ensure a smooth enrollment process.

Our Admissions team will work directly with students to ensure a smooth transfer and enrollment process. The benefits for Newbury College students are as follows:

  1. Automatic acceptance to JWU if accepted to Newbury College. Note that there may be exceptions based on specialized majors — please contact Admissions for more information.
  2. JWU will award transfer credit if student has an overall GPA of 2.0 or higher and where the student achieved a passing grade for the course.
  3. Financial aid: Submit financial aid award, merit award documents from Newbury College to receive a competitive award analysis. Add JWU to your FAFSA: 003404
  4. JWU is working on a teach out option for those Newbury students that are currently enrolled in programs that align with JWU.  More information will be coming regarding this opportunity shortly.
