Student veterans and Francisco Ureno at Veteran's Day Appreciation event.


NECC has staff and on-campus space dedicated to supporting the academic success of U.S. military personnel, veterans, and their eligible beneficiaries.

All of our degree and certificate programs are approved for VA education benefits. These financial benefits can also be applied to several of NECC’s noncredit program offerings, including the police academy and advanced manufacturing.

Here’s How We Can Help

  • Explaining/deciphering your educational benefits
  • Assisting with your NECC application and assessment
  • Determining and awarding prior credit
  • Connecting you with community resources that can help with counseling, housing, transportation, and more.
  • Helping with the transition and transfer of credits to a four-year college or university

Engage in Learning and Campus Life

In addition to participating in all of the extra-curricular activities available to every student, we also offer several organizations and events exclusive to veterans, such as:

  • Student Veterans of America at NECC
  • Veteran and military appreciation events, including special recognition at graduation
  • Recognition during sporting events
  • Special dining events
