First-year (high school) students should submit the following:

Early Assurance Program

UNE's Early Assurance program is designed to offer talented undergraduate students with well-defined career aspirations the opportunity to streamline acceptance into certain UNE graduate programs.

Qualified undergraduate freshman applicants can declare their intent to pursue a graduate or professional degree by selecting their intended Early Assurance designation on the Common Application or on UNE's online application.
If a student is accepted to UNE and also accepted into the Early Assurance program they may then move directly into their chosen UNE graduate program, as long as the programmatic and progression requirements are met during their undergraduate studies.
