    The college tuition is very affordable and you get a lot for it. The college offers free gym use, computer use, and tutoring. I am very pleased with the resources at NECC.

    Great value. Facilities are state of the art, course credits are extremely inexpensive, some professors do not use big, expensive textbooks, but instead use a $20 book from B&N or an online classroom site. Library has access to hundreds of databases. Parking is ample yet cheap.

    You will, all in all, get a pretty decent college education here (aside from the occasional professor who gives check, check plus, check minus, instead of actual grades). Just be sure to talk to your advisor and the people in the financial aid office regularly and you will do great!

    NECC's tuition is MUCH more affordable than many other schools, and the education comes with plenty of academic support, opportunities to get involved on campus, and help with making sure that transferring to a 4-year college goes smoothly.
