Coming soon!

NEBHE plans to publish a new digital Guide to New England Colleges & Universities on our website in Fall 2019. Selected data from the Guide also will be featured in a new interactive data interface.

This new version of the Guide will feature key information about the region’s public and independent, two-year and four-year undergraduate higher education institutions – with a particular focus on campus resources that are important to adult learners. The Guide is intended to be New England’s first consolidated higher education guide for adults within the region who wish to enroll for the first time in, or return to postsecondary education for sub-baccalaureate programs of study.


The 2018 Guide to New England Colleges & Universities, produced by NEBHE in partnership with Boston magazine, is available as a downloadable pdf.

The Guide lists key data for each college, such as admissions application deadlines and acceptance rates; faculty-student ratio; enrollment totals and breakdowns for part-time, commuting, female, international and minority students; cost of attendance; and degrees offered.

In addition to the college listings and profiles, the 2018 Guide includes a brief overview of New England as a higher education destination, college admissions and financial aid resources, and details on NEBHE’s Tuition Break program.

NEBHE gathered the information for the college listings through a 2017 online survey of the colleges and universities. The 2018 Guide was the seventh edition produced in partnership with Boston magazine.

NEBHE published its Annual Directory of New England Colleges and Universities for a half-century as a special issue of The New England Journal of Higher Education (NEJHE). In 2010, NEBHE moved its NEJHE publication entirely online.
