Things to do at NECC to get you ready to graduate and transfer

Repeat Title Here

Complete the following at NECC to get you ready to graduate and transfer

  1. Complete the petition to graduate form.
  2. Email the Center for Liberal Arts to request a review of your petition and DegreeWorks audit before you submit the graduation petition and DegreeWorks audit to the Registrar’s Office – the deadline is December 22. 
  3. If you have not already done so, complete your transfer application.
  4. Research the deadline to apply to the transfer institution. For example, the deadline to apply to UML for the spring 2022 semester as a transfer is January 7th – do not wait until then to apply – you can (and should) apply now!
  5. Colleges have several different opportunities to meet with NECC transfer students as indicated in the tabs below. We strongly urge you to take advantage of these opportunities as you plan your future.
  6. Request that your official transcripts from NECC be sent to the transfer institution. You should order them once you submit your application, even though your fall courses are in progress. You then update the transfer institution by sending them another transcript once your degree is awarded.
