Accepted Students Parents and Families Alumni Students, Faculty & Staff


Thank you for joining us at New England College. We can’t wait for you to arrive on campus, and work hard to create orientation experiences that aim to connect you to our campus. Preparing students to succeed is what we are all about at NEC!

Fall Orientation

Orientation will begin the evening you arrive on campus and continue with activities throughout the first week of classes. Orientation activities are designed to cover important information to prepare you to understand campus resources, policies and to start to get to know your classmates. Fall orientation is required for all new students. This year a majority of the sessions will be held via zoom. New students who are commuting will also participate in orientation.
