Learn to Express Your Ideas Clearly in Writing
Good writing takes practice! At NECC we’ll help you learn and apply the steps of the writing process to produce paragraphs and essays.
When you become an NECC student, you will take the Academic Placement Assessment, or ACCUPLACER, which will help to accurately place you in the appropriate classes to ensure your success.
If you need to improve your writing skills before moving on to college-level courses, you will be placed in English Writing Skills, Introduction to Basic Writing, or Basic Writing. These courses are eligible for financial aid but do not carry graduation credit and are not usually transferable. They will help you make progress in your writing abilities to move on to college-level courses.
