New England College Announces Summer Courses at Reduced Tuition Rate

Henniker, N.H. (April 6, 2021) – New England College (NEC) will offer over 50 summer courses at a reduced tuition rate of $200 per credit. Over 100 students have already registered for NEC’s second consecutive summer session, which begins May 10, with a subsequent term beginning June 29.

Enrolled students will have the opportunity to pursue professional development, catch up on or get ahead in credits, explore college life, or encourage family members to earn college credit in schedule-friendly seven-week terms. Summer participants will include current NEC students or those home from other colleges, high school students preparing for fall semester, veterans, and professionals seeking career advancement opportunities.

“Many people have been cooped up inside for a long time,” said Jason Buck, Dean of Students at NEC. “Our summer programming provides an opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and have some fun while taking advantage of low tuition costs and learning something new.” This year, students can enroll in courses in Manchester or at the Henniker campus, where they can take advantage of planned events along the Contoocook River, hiking and biking trails, rope courses and a variety of outdoor activities. Additionally, some courses will be offered online.

Diverse summer courses include Photography, Community-based Art, Drawing, Public Speaking, Business Finance, Psychology of Sport and Movement, Teasing Death with Adventure, Freedom of Speech, Criminal Procedure, Relationship Status Complicated, Happiness: Positive Psychology, and Resilience and Wellbeing for Life.

“The summer is the time for our faculty to offer courses that speak to their passions,” said Dr. Wayne Lesperance, Provost at NEC. “Students come from far and wide to take advantage of these compelling options, while positioning themselves for academic success, whether as professionals or as new or returning students.”

With a reputation for building leaders, NEC has been trusted to provide quality education for 75 years. Interested students should reach out to Ian Harmon, Director of Student Success and Advising, at to register for courses. More information can be found at
