Click on the question to read more information:
Even though you are taking courses at the college, you are NOT formally considered to be a student at NECC who is eligible for a degree until you matriculate.
Matriculation just means that you take the time to formally apply to the College and declare the program of study from which you intend to graduate and receive your certificate/degree.
Yes, if you have never applied to the college or have not attended within the last three years the cost is $25 for application.
You should matriculate by the time you have taken 15 college credits.
Visit the Admissions Office, and fill out an Application for Admission. On this application you will be asked to declare your program of study.
Many students who don’t ever matriculate find that it can cause problems if they then want to graduate.
If you have decided that you would like to change your program of study; be sure to fill out an Action Form in the Advising Center.
If the answer is “NO”, you need to make an appointment with the Assessment Center.
All students must be assessed in the areas of Reading, Writing and Math, after taking 6 credits at the college. The scores are necessary to ensure that you are placed in the appropriate courses when taking English, Math and other college courses which require college level reading. There is no charge for the tests.
The Assessment Center has two locations:
Haverhill, Spurk Building, C-208 ( 978-556-3872)
Lawrence, L-200 (978-738-7426)
Call for the times and dates of assessment testing and to make an appointment.
If the answer is “NO”, you may want to visit Academic Advising. Academic Advising exists to provide academic advising to those students (unclassified or evening) who are not assigned a faculty advisor.
