Associate Degree Program Requirements

Please note:

  • Only the current requirements listed in the Academic Advising Handbook, the College Catalog, and the website are listed here.

Starting in the fall of 2014, any student enrolled in an associate degree program who is new to NECC  and has no academic history at the college, must take at least one course designated as intensive in each of NECC’s six core academic skills in order to graduate.  In most cases, the program’s core required courses include these intensive courses.  Plan to see an advisor for more complete information about this graduation requirement.
