Transfer Credit

An official transcript from the previous college is required to award transfer credit. Students will be notified by mail from the Registrar of the transfer credits awarded and generally, transfer credits will not exceed 36 credits.

Transfer credit may be awarded for college level courses earned with a grade of C or better at another accredited institution. Grades given for transfer courses are not computed in the quality point average (GPA) at Northern Essex Community College.

Courses that do not have an equivalency at NECC will be transferred in with the appropriate course prefix followed by the number of credits and the course title that appears on the transcripts from the previous institution.
