  • A generous transfer policy that considers your experience, training, and prior coursework.

  • Highly affordable tuition rates on over 100 different programs
  • Online and on-campus associate, bachelor’s, and master’s degree options

Plus Some Academic Programs Uniquely Designed for Servicemembers:

We are a Yellow Ribbon Program College and can also offer additional assistance to Pre-9/11 eligible veterans with our unique military scholarship program (Russell Durgin Military Scholarship) named in honor of one of our own local heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice on the battlefield in Afghanistan.

It is our commitment to serve the educational needs of those who serve our country that has earned us the label of being a “military friendly school” by the G.I. Jobs magazine.


Active duty service members whose attendance was interrupted by military service, are readmitted to New England College and their degree program in a way that complies with FSA Guidelines for readmission of service members.
