Northern Essex has been offering online courses and programs for the past 18 years, according to Melba Acevedo, director, Instructional Technology & Online Learning, and their popularity grows each year.
“About 70 percent of our students work full time or part time while in college,” said Acevedo. “Online options give them flexibility because we know being on campus can be a challenge. It is ideal for students with technical skills and good study habits.”
