Rules and Values
If you have questions throughout orientation, please contact your Student Advisor, Melissa Ferrigno, at email@example.com or (207) 221-4779.
Throughout your educational journey here at UNE, you will be guided and supported by a dedicated Student Advisor. Your Advisor will help enroll you in your competencies, monitor your completion of competencies to ensure you are making academic progress, facilitate communication with your Faculty Mentor as needed, and assist you in connecting with other University departments or resources, such as Financial Aid, Registrar, Student Accounts, Library Services, Tutoring Services, or Student Affairs. Your Advisor has facilitated your admissions process, and will continue to be a resource for you to rely on throughout your studies.
Please view the video below to learn more about your advisor.

Academic Integrity Statement – The University of New England values academic integrity in all aspects of the educational experience. Academic dishonesty in any form undermines this standard and devalues the original contributions of others. It is the responsibility of all members of the university community to actively uphold the integrity of the academy; failure to act, for any reason, is not acceptable. (For more detailed information and the complete policy, use the link above and watch the presentation below.)
At the point of acceptance into our CBE program, you will work with your advisor to create a Target Academic Plan (TAP). A student’s TAP will identify the number (quantity only) of competencies the student intends to complete per subscription period. TAP’s generally follow one of 3 pathways:
- Accelerated Path: A student who intends to complete the maximum number of competencies per subscription period. For the pilot, the maximum number is no more than 30. For future cohorts, the minimum is 24 competencies with no maximum.
- Precision Path: A student who intends to enroll in the minimum number of competencies to be eligible for Federal Financial Aid: 12 competencies per subscription period.
- Professional Path: These students may want to alter their plan significantly per subscription period and are not confined by requirements of Federal aid. These students must still complete in the 5 year time frame.
Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)
Students must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale. Students receive a mark of “Proficient” or “Not Yet” on their academic record for any competencies in which they enroll per term, regardless of whether they attempt the assessment. A grade of “Not Yet” is counted as competencies that are failed for purposes of the GPA calculation for SAP.
Students must complete 2/3 of competencies attempted to a level of proficiency. To be eligible to receive Federal Financial Aid, students must enroll in a minimum of 12 competencies per subscription period. Completing 2/3 of this minimum means the student is on track to complete the program within the maximum time frame of 5 years.
To maintain SAP, students must achieve the minimum cumulative pass rate of 2/3 for all competency units attempted and completed.
