Overall a good school for students who want to transfer to a 4-year school. Professors are a hit or miss, I've had pretty amazing teachers here but some have been awful (rate my professor usually helps with this). Low tuition compared to 4-year schools, so smart to take classes here and save a lot of money! My two-year degree will end up costing me only around $20,000, which is nothing nowadays.

Awesome teachers and staff, they have easy steps to do anything! Although there are quick courses most teachers do a phenomenal job teaching every aspect of the course. The students are of all ages and I haven’t met one mean person.
My experience at Northen Essex Community College has been amazing. The classes are very well taught because of their use of technology, communication, and their excellent staff of teachers. You will feel right at home while attending Northern Essex. The number of friends you'll meet from each semester is just one of the benefits of attending. Along with counselors who will guide you every step of the way until you are confident enough to be an independent scholar. College can seem scary but at NECC they will map out the next few years so you don't have to stress anymore.
