The Student Handbook (PDF) is designed to provide information that will assist you in your academic and extra-curricular endeavors at UNE.

Program-specific handbooks and manuals, published by certain academic departments, will provide further structure and guidance and should be used in conjunction with this publication.

The handbook describes how UNE works, where students should go, and who they should see to resolve questions and concerns. Policies, procedures, and regulations are outlined here so that all students (undergraduate, graduate, professional, certificate, and special status) are aware of the parameters within which our community functions.

The Student Handbook is published on the UNE website. Information, procedures, and programs may change during the year. You will be notified via email if a change should occur, and the revision will appear immediately in the web version. In addition, changes may be published in handbook supplements.

The Division of Student Affairs is here to help you. Stop in to meet our professional staff. You will always find a friendly face and helping hand.

The University of New England reserves the right to change the policies, procedures, rules, regulations, and information in the handbook at any time. Changes will become effective at the time the proper authorities so determine, and the changes will apply to both prospective students and those already enrolled. The handbook is a general information publication only, and it is not intended to nor does it contain all regulations that relate to student behaviors.
