What is Early Action?

We offer the non-binding Early Action deadline for undergraduate applicants who desire early notification of their admission status. Applicants wishing to be considered for Early Action will need to submit their completed application by November 15. Students submitting all application materials on or before November 15 will receive notification of their admissions decision prior to December 31.

Applicants for Nursing, Pre-Dental Medicine (3+4 D.M.D.), and Pre-Medicine (3+4 D.O.) should apply by the Early Action deadline. Any program applications submitted after a deadline are reviewed on a space-available basis.

Accelerated B.S. in Nursing Program

Please note there is a different application process for the Accelerated B.S. in Nursing (A.B.S.N.) program, which is for students who already hold a bachelor's degree. The deadline for the January (Spring 2022) cohort is November 15, 2021 and the application is available here. The deadline for the May (Summer 2022) cohort is April 15, 2022 and the application is available here.


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

  1. A Common Application, a Coalition Application or a UNE Application with the $40 application fee
  2. Official copy of your high school transcript

UNE uses a test-blind admissions policy, which means we will not consider ACT or SAT scores for general admission. Instead, we will review your high school experience as a whole. Please see our test policy for more information.


UNE's GradVantage* 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 GradVantage designation on the Common Application, the Coalition Application or UNE's application.

If a student is accepted to UNE and also accepted into the GradVantage 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.
