Welcome to The New England Institute

for Teacher Education

at Burlington College


The New England Institute learned through a public press release that our academic partner, Burlington College, is closing its doors on May 27 due to a financial crisis.
Here is what NEI students and faculty need to know:

1.   All NEI students will receive grades/credits/transcripts from Burlington College for work completed or in progress.
2.   Burlington College will remain NEASC accredited until Jan. 2017.
3.   Transition plans are in progress to realign our academic partnership with another accredited institution to create a seamless transition.
 4.   Academic Dean Stephen York is representing NEI in all matters dealing with this transition.

Stephen York may be reached at the NEI office at 207.367.5807.

Thank you for your understanding as we transition to a new Academic Partnership. You may check here for periodic updates.
