Orientation at Northern Essex Community College

Welcome to NECC!

Your first step as a student is to attend Orientation, where you will have the opportunity to meet faculty and staff, learn about student success resources, and talk with current NECC students. You will learn about student life, take a tour of the campus, become familiar with the technology used in your classes, and leave with an understanding of what to expect when you walk in for your first day of classes. All new students are required to attend this introduction to Northern Essex Community College.

Orientation is offered on multiple days at both the Lawrence and Haverhill Campuses. You only need to register for one session. They all have the same information, so choose whichever one works best for you. Orientation is the best way to get acquainted with NECC!

Use the link below to register.  After signing up you will receive a confirmation email regarding the date and time you selected. All sessions will have Spanish translation available.
