Payment Options Available:

Online Payments

Pay online at your convenience, by Credit Card or Bank Account (ACH).

  • Log on to myNECC using your student ID and Password
  • Click on the My Information tab.
  • View MyAccount, Make a Payment, Payment Plans, and Refunds (be sure that the pop up block on the web browser is off.)
  • Follow the instructions to ‘Make a Payment’ with a Credit/Debit Card or Bank Account.

Important: Our credit card processor PayPath/Heartland charges a 2.75 percent service fee for processing each credit or debit card payment. There is a minimum charge amount of $3.00. During the payment process, the fee will be added to your payment amount, but it will be disclosed separately from your tuition and fee payment on your credit card statement. The fee is retained by PayPath/Heartland and NECC does not receive any portion of this fee.

Electronic Check (ACH) payment is a free online payment alternative. We strongly recommend you to pay online using this option in order to avoid the processing fee.


Come in with cash or check/money order to the Bursar’s payment window in Haverhill (in the Behrakis Center) or in Lawrence at the Welcome Center (in the Dr. Ibrahim El-Hefni building) at 414 Common St, Lawrence MA 01840.

Mail your Check or Money Order To:

Northern Essex Community College
Bursar’s Office, Behrakis One-Stop Student Center, SC121
100 Elliott Street
Haverhill, MA 01830

Note: Make checks payable to NECC and write the student ID# on the check.
