NECC to Host Special Day for Students Transferring In on June 14
Close to one third of students enrolled at Northern Essex started their education at another college, and decided to transfer in to Northern Essex.
On Friday, June 14 from 10 am to noon, Northern Essex will host a special Transfer to NECC Information Session for students who started somewhere else but want to continue their education or get back on track at NECC.
Those attending can meet with an advisor and go over their college transcript to learn how many credits will transfer, tour the campus, and learn about NECC programs, financial aid, and support services. Pizza will be served.
There are lots of reasons so many students are transferring in to Northern Essex, says Danny Richer, NECC’s director of admission. “Sometimes your first college just isn’t a good fit. It could be because of cost, academics, social climate, or where it’s located.”
Students can transfer a maximum of 36 credits into one of Northern Essex’s associate degree programs and up to 12 credits into a certificate program.
Once a student has earned an associate degree, they can transfer from Northern Essex to their choice of colleges, public or private.
“Our grads go to 130 different colleges and universities after Northern Essex,” says Richer.
The MassTransfer Pathway provides a seamless transfer for students who are interested in transferring to any of the public college and universities in Massachusetts, including UMass Lowell, UMass Amherst, or Salem State.
The college also has transfers agreements with private colleges, such as Merrimack and Endicott colleges.
By starting at Northern Essex and transferring to a four-year college, a student can save 40 percent or more on the cost of a bachelor’s degree, says Richer.
