We believe in collaboration, not competition. We enable our students to get the most out of their learning and personal growth experience.
When students trust us with their education, we want them learning instead of chasing grades. We will still grade internally, so we have an indicator of each student’s academic performance relative to the anonymized and aggregate grades of classmates, and to ensure the passing requirements for courses are met. However, NewU Student Transcripts shall only display a Pass/Fail grade for each course completed by our students.
In keeping with the spirit of learning and cooperation, we do not disclose personally-identifiable course GPA grades or cumulative CGPA to anyone outside of NewU.
NewU is committed to making decisions concerning the admission, education, and employment of individuals upon their qualifications and abilities, and seeks to attract to its faculty, staff, and student body qualified persons of diverse backgrounds.
In accordance with this policy and U.S. law, NewU does not discriminate in admissions, educational programs, or employment against any individual on account of that individual’s sex, race, color, religion, age, disability, status as a protected veteran, or national or ethnic origin; nor does NewU discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity or expression. Consistent with its obligations under the law, in the administration of its programs and activities NewU prohibits unlawful harassment including sexual harassment and sexual violence. This policy applies to NewU’s programs and activities both on and off-campus, including overseas programs.
Admissions and Financial Aid
We require all applicants to submit only a completed NewU application form plus one of the following: a high school transcript, diploma, or GED/HiSET certificate. NewU does not and will not review any other materials, documents, or information as part of our admissions decision process. We admit students on a rolling basis throughout the year.
Need-Blind Admissions. Need-Based Financial Aid. NewU makes admissions decisions without any review or consideration for a student’s financial need. Once admitted, a student may be eligible for Financial Aid solely based on the student’s financial situation.
We admit students based on their ability to succeed at NewU, not on how much they can afford to pay. We allocate Financial Aid to those who need it the most. We strive to ensure a more equitable access to higher education, and a fairer outcome for all our students.
