Two Northern Essex Community College students took advantage of early registration in November and were rewarded for their efforts.

Caitlin Miracle, a graphic design major, registered for her spring classes early (before November 21, 2016) and in doing so became the happy recipient of a $250 gift card to the NECC Bookstore.

Stephanie Santiago, who is pursuing a career in nursing, also registered early and won a free four-credit class from Enrollment Services.

Miracle, a 20-year-old Merrimac resident was prompted to enroll early hoping she could enroll in the classes that would work around her work schedule at Newton Greenhouse in Newton, NH.

“I knew that the sooner I registered the better,” she said. “I would be able to register for better classes and create a better schedule. I will definitely be spending the bookstore gift card on items I will need for my classes.”

For Santiago, she was encouraged by her English professor to register early for similar reasons. “

The 19-year-old North Chelmsford needed to arrange her classes around her work schedule at Mary Immaculate Nursing Home.

This initiative was introduced by enrollment services to encourage NECC students to register early. Students who registered prior to November 21, 2016, were entered in a drawing to win a free course or $250 gift card to the NECC bookstore.
