UMass Lowell to open campus at NECC

HAVERHILL - UMass Lowell is opening a satellite operation at Northern Essex Community College while continuing to search for a permanent location for a satellite campus in downtown Haverhill, it was announced today.

Starting this month, UMass Lowell personnel will be at Northern Essex to advise and register students for the fall 2013 semester and classes will start in September.

UMass Lowell’s satellite campus, the first for the university, will be overseen by its Division of Online and Continuing Education. Through the Haverhill campus, students will have access this fall to courses in fields such as business administration, criminal justice and liberal arts. “We are pleased that we can begin making a high-quality UMass Lowell education available in Haverhill as soon as September,” said UMass Lowell Chancellor Marty Meehan. “We have worked successfully with Northern Essex for years to help their graduates make a smooth transition to continue their education on our campus and now we can say that will be even easier.” UMass Lowell works closely with the state’s community colleges, including Northern Essex, to help graduates with associate’s degrees move on to the university, where they can then complete a bachelor’s degree in two years. UMass Lowell also offers a tuition waiver for community college graduates who complete their associate’s degree with a 3.0 or better GPA. More than 360 students transferred from Northern Essex to UMass Lowell last year.
