The NECC Advantage

Northern Essex is the most affordable option whether you are looking to earn a certificate or an associate degree. A typical 3-credit class costs less than $450. You can earn a certificate for less than $3,950 or a two-year associate degree for under $8,800.

NECC is also the most affordable way to earn your bachelor’s degree. By starting at NECC for your first two years of college, you save over $10,000 when you transfer to a public college – and nearly $60,000 if you transfer to a private college!
