Announcement from Provost Nolan Atkins

Northern Vermont University (NVU) will be discontinuing the two bachelor’s degree completion programs it offers at Northern Essex Community College. We began the program in 2016 and it was with great pride that we saw our first graduates of the program last May. This was a very difficult decision for us to make, but one that was inevitable given enrollments in the NVU at NECC programs.

Currently enrolled NVU at NECC students: If you are currently enrolled in the NVU at NECC degree programs in Computer Information Systems or Graphic Design, NVU will continue supporting you in a teach out of the two degree programs so that you may complete your degree in a timely manner. Please look for a detailed email and/or phone call from NVU about the teach out.

Thank you for several wonderful years at NECC. It has been a pleasure working with you as NECC builds the higher education offerings in your community.
