Support and Services

We're Here For You

Northern Vermont University has worked closely with Northern Essex Community College to provide NVU at NECC students with both face-to-face services as well as virtual services supported directly by NVU staff.

Academic Support

Northern Vermont University wants you to succeed in your goal of obtaining a bachelor’s degree. We are committed to providing both online services and providing face-to-face support. In addition, we are partnering with Northern Essex academic support services as well to make sure that NVU at NECC students have access to academic support in a variety of forms.

The NVU at NECC site director can work with you to create a customized academic support plan.

Learning Accommodations

Northern Vermont University strives to see that every student has an opportunity to be successful. For students with disabilities, that means that we try to set up reasonable and practical accommodations and supports. On this page you will find useful information about students with disabilities, getting accommodations, and the key ingredients to being a successful college student. Please remember, that although you are attending classes in Lawrence or Haverhill, NVU is here for you, so if there’s something you can’t find or if you need further assistance, you can contact our staff, Mary and Lori directly or you can visit the Learning Accommodations Office at NECC.

Library Services

Northern Vermont University students are served by the NVU libraries — Samuel Read Hall Library on the Lyndon campus and the Willey Library on the Johnson campus.

All NVU at NECC students have a library account through which they can access services.

NVU at NECC students may also want to use the resources of the Northern Essex Libraries. There are libraries on both campuses. For more information on these libraries:

NVU at NECC students will be able to check books out of the NECC libraries once they have activated their NVU at NECC ID card at one of the libraries.

Veterans Services

The Veterans Services Office at Northern Vermont University and the Veterans Services Office at NECC plan to work closely with one another to provide a seamless support system for our veteran students. Professional staff can provide information on educational assistance and academic support. NVU at NECC student veterans should check in with the NVU contact who can then coordinate local support with the NECC contact.

Veterans Club at NVU

The NVU Veterans Club is for student veterans and others members of the NVU community who would like to support veterans and their families. It’s a great way to make friends and integrate yourself into campus life. The club was instrumental in developing the Veterans Park at the NVU-Lyndon campus and receives funding from the Student Government Association.

Extracurricular Activities

Participating in campus clubs and activities is a proven way to polish your leadership skills. We encourage groups of like-minded, motivated students to form new clubs of their own! Creating and fostering a community of caring is central to who we are as a university.

NVU at NECC Community Service Club

A Society of Students in Service Together (ASSIST)
NVU believes that it is important to be good community members. We hope that NVU at NECC students get involved with the community. With this in mind, a branch of the community service club ASSIST, active on our Lyndon, VT campus, is being established on the NVU at NECC Lawrence campus as well. ASSIST gets students involved in bettering the community with a focus on specific, service related issues.
