The Guide to New England Colleges & Universities, produced by NEBHE in partnership with Boston magazine, 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.

Boston magazine published the 2018 Guide to New England Colleges & Universities as a companion publication to the December 2017 edition of its Boston and Philadelphia magazines.

Boston magazine provides the 2018 Guide as an interactive flip book and prominently features the 2018 Guide on its website.

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. The partnership with Boston magazine allows us to again produce a printed directory for the convenience of our high school guidance and higher education colleagues, as well as college-bound students and families. NEBHE gathered the information for the college listings through a 2017 online survey of the colleges and universities. The 2018 Guide is the seventh edition produced in partnership with Boston magazine.
