Programs Offered

New England College offers accredited, online associate and bachelor’s degree programs to distance learners everywhere. Without ever setting foot on campus, students can receive and complete assignments, take tests, talk to their professors/instructors, or collaborate with classmates on group projects. The online programs mirror the quality and excellence of the traditional counterparts, but provide a high level of flexibility and convenience by providing the contents of the programs online. By incorporating a virtual classroom with interactive tools such as chat rooms, video streaming, and discussion boards, the university re-creates the classroom experience for distance learners. The school also provides valuable outlets for resources and support, designed to make the online learning experience as easy as possible.
