Submitted by on August 22, 2017 – 6:34 pm

Want to enroll in college but don’t know where to start or worry that you aren’t academically prepared? Northern Essex Community College still has seats in its Transition to College Program. The program is free. Classes start September 7.

If you have a high school diploma or equivalency, would like to pursue a degree but feel unprepared, want to improve your academic skills, and would like to research careers, then this program is for you.

The Transition to College Program provides academic work in reading, writing, math and computers while integrating college adjustment skills such as time management, organization, note taking, paper writing, library, study and homework skills.

Additionally, students learn about the culture and expectations of college, complete an NECC application and financial aid forms, and receive career planning guidance and advising.

Classes are held at the Riverwalk Campus of NECC, 360 Merrimack St., in Lawrence.

For additional information contact Lynda MacDonald, Educational and Career Adviser, at 978-659-1284 or by email at

This free program is funded by the Massachusetts Dept. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
