Requirements Specific to Each Certificate Program

The number of credits required to earn a certificate varies by program. Below is the list of all certificate programs offered at NECC. Each one will reflect the following program details.

Required Courses

  • Prerequisite courses (courses you must complete before taking other courses)
  • Credits earned for completing each course
  • Courses you will take in the coming semester, or course you need to complete in future semesters to earn the Certificate

You are encouraged to log on to Self Service to check your progress towards program completion.
