We Can Help You Succeed in College

Our commitment to helping everyone access a high quality college education includes providing high-level coursework in English as a Second Language.

When you apply to become an NECC student, you will take the ESL Placement Assessment, and meet with an ESL advisor, which will help to accurately place you in the appropriate classes to ensure your success.

If you need to improve your English language skills in order to earn a college degree or certificate, you will be placed in an appropriate level class. These courses will help you make progress in your English language skills to move on to college-level courses.
