Congratulations & Welcome to New England College!
Fall 2015 Students: We are excited about your acceptance and we promise to guide you along every step toward your enrollment. To get started, it is important that you take these next steps. We encourage you to re-visit this page periodically as we will post updates as the process progresses. Your class Facebook page will also provide updated information. 2015 Fall Calendar
1. Complete the FAFSA to Apply for Financial Aid
Since applying for financial aid is a new experience for most students, we wanted to share these simple steps to ensure you receive maximum consideration for all types of financial aid. Complete and submit the FAFSA
. Beginning January 1, students admitted for the fall semester can complete the online Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) and enter the Federal School Code for New England College, which is 002579. For priority consideration, submit the FAFSA by March 1. You can access the online application and find additional information about FAFSA at www.fafsa.gov
. The FAFSA is the only application you need to complete to be considered for all federal, state, and institutional financial aid at NEC. If you have any questions visit the Student Financial Services page
or give the office a call at 603.428.2226.
2. Submit Enrollment Deposit
We request that you submit your enrollment deposit of $300 within 30 days of your acceptance. Your deposit will reserve your place in the incoming class and confirms your acceptance of any merit scholarship you may have been offered. There is an advantage to submitting your deposit sooner as housing assignments are made based on the date in which deposits are received. You may send your deposit by mail along with the Enrollment Status Reply Form to New England College, Office of Admission, 98 Bridge Street, Henniker, NH 03242, or pay online
. Deposits are refundable until May 1, 2015.
