Financial Literacy and Planning

Financial aid can help you pay for the costs of attending NECC including tuition and fees, books, and other costs (room and board, transportation, and personal costs). The SSC will help you learn how you can apply for financial aid. You will also discover the importance of financial life planning and budgeting, and learn about credit, savings, and loans.

Life Planning

At the Student Center, we’ll help you learn how to balance school with work and your personal life, and connect you with resources to help you achieve academic success. Through the use of tools like DegreeWorks, you can monitor your progress toward degree completion and stay focused on your academic goals.

Orientation and Engagement

Attending NECC’s new student orientation is a great way to learn about the college, and getting involved with a club, sport, or activity is an excellent way to meet new friends, develop new skills, and succeed at NECC. The SSC staff will provide information on the many opportunities offered at NECC.
