Undergraduate Adult Students

Apply to the Undergraduate Adult Education Program

We’re here to help you meet your academic and professional goals. We’re dedicated because we’ve seen what our degree program can do for our graduates. Throughout your time here, we’ll give you one-on-one assistance and advising, and we’ll help you create a degree completion plan that works for you, including a transfer credit evaluation. And we’ll help you stay on course to reach your graduation timeline.

Application requirements

  • A completed undergraduate adult education online application (you can submit your application at any time—we accept applications throughout the year)
  • Official high school transcript or GED certificate
  • Official college transcripts from all accredited colleges, if applicable

Transfer credits

Nichols is proud to be recognized for excellence in ease of transfer on the Phi Theta Kappa 2017 Honor Roll. If you have previously earned college credits, talk to us about our transfer credit policy and our community college partnerships to see if your course(s) are eligible for transfer. Final decisions about acceptance of course credit will be made by the Registrar’s Office in accordance with our policy. You may even be able to earn college credit for work experience through our credit for prior learning policy.

Financial aid

Our tuition is competitively priced, at $330 per credit—making us one of the most affordable, high-quality private colleges in Massachusetts. For those students who qualify, financial aid is available. Students are required to submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form to determine eligibility for federal and state financial aid. The Nichols school code is 002197.

We want to talk to you!

We’re here to help—so if you have questions about Nichols or our application process, contact Laura Hunter, director of undergraduate adult enrollment, at 508-213-2141 or laura.hunter@nichols.edu.
