Congratulations on Taking the First Step to Further Your Education!

At Orientation, you will get acquainted with NECC, college life, go on a tour, become familiar with the technology used for your classes, receive free parking pass that you can use on any NECC Campus, and leave with an understanding of what to expect when you walk in for your first day of classes. You will have the opportunity to meet staff, student success resources, and talk with current NECC students. All new students are required to attend this introduction to Northern Essex Community College.

You will be contacted regarding the date of your orientation session by the New Student Orientation Team. New Student Orientation will be offered in January in Haverhill and Lawrence.
