After you make your enrollment deposit, there are three services you can start using right away.
Each of these services and password(s) are described in detail in your technology admissions package, which is sent in mid-May. This information is important and should be stored in a safe place and memorized. All communications from the College will go through your NEC email, so it is essential to switch to using that as your primary email as soon as you have made your deposit. If you (or your family) have any questions not answered in the materials, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 428.2223.
Our goal at New England College is to ensure that your transition from high school to college is a successful one. In addition to helping you feel at home as a first-year student, Summer Orientation is designed to answer the many questions you and your parents may have regarding financial aid, work study, course selection, student life, health services and billing. We know this is an important step for everyone in your family and we encourage them to participate as well. There are many benefits to attending one of the orientation day programs. You will meet new classmates and professors, have an opportunity to discuss your course schedule, and begin new life-long friendships!

Pathways-Advising will develop your first semester schedule based upon your responses to a course selection survey. Once complete, Pathways will email you with instructions for how to view your schedule. Please take this survey as soon as possible. The more information we have, the better able we are to build a schedule that fulfills your needs and interests. Our general education courses are titled the Liberal Core Curriculum (LCC), with the theme of “On Being Human.”Generally, your first semester schedule will include a first-year student seminar, College Writing I, a Liberal Arts and Science (LAS) seminar, a course in your major (if you have chosen one) and/or an elective. If you have selected a major you can view our current curriculum worksheets, linked here, to get a better idea of what a typical schedule might include. (Keep in mind that classes do fill so not all courses will be available your first semester.)
If you are a transfer student, your schedules will be created in consultation with Pathways-Advising. Advising staff will contact you when it is time to register. Be sure to submit your most up-to-date official transcripts to the Admissions Office.
In addition, all incoming students are required to take a Mathematics Placement Test (MPT). This will assess your abilities in mathematics and better guide us when it is time to select a mathematics course (not necessarily taken during your first semester at NEC.) The test can be taken online prior to your arrival, or we will hold an exam on campus during Fall orientation. Once you receive your computer access information you will receive an e-mail with more details about the MPT.
If you have any questions about course registration, please contact Pathways-Advising. They are available to answer any scheduling questions and can be contacted at 603-428-2218.
