Academic Advising Resources
We’ll Do Everything We Can to Help You Get on, and Stay on, Track to Achieve Your Goals
We can help you to successfully start, and complete, a program
Working collaboratively with NECC faculty, we will assist you in understanding program requirements, whether you can apply previously earned credits, and what, if any, special program admission requirements are needed. Once you’re in your program we encourage you to come talk with us so we can get you assistance that will support your success.
We provide in-class presentations on transfer opportunities and requirements
We may be invited to your class to share information on what you need to transfer to a four-year college or university, what articulation agreements exist with the colleges you are interested in, what crucial changes the colleges have made.
If you are placed on academic suspension and the Review Committee allows you to return to school, you will meet with us on a regular basis so we can provide guidance and support, including participation in the Retention Intervention Program that includes workshops on time management and study skills. If you have failed a course required to complete your program, you will be encouraged to re-take it.
If you end up on academic probation we will meet with you regularly to ensure you receive the support to improve your academic performance. If you have failed a course required to complete your program, you will be encouraged to re-take it. The goal is to restore your appropriate academic standing.
Transitioning ESL Students
If you have taken at least one English Second Language (ESL) course, and successfully tested out of the ESL curriculum, you will be assigned to either a bilingual/bicultural faculty member or an academic advising professional staff member.
