Undergraduate Student FAQs
The current tuition per course for all undergraduate courses is $1100.00 per course. By enrolling in the continuous enrollment option at NECB you receive a reduced tuition rate provided that you maintain a minimum course load of 18 credits within a 12 month period starting from the date of your first term which constitutes continuous enrollment.
The five foundational courses at NECB are:
- INF101 Information Literacy for College Success
- ENG101 English Composition I
- MAT103 Business Math
- PHI101 Critical Thinking
- MGM201 Principles of Management
Information Literacy for College Success is required as your first course at NECB and the four other foundational courses will set you up for success in all your other writing and math related courses. They will give you the skills you need to be successful academically.
If you decide to drop a course, it is your responsibility to notify NECB in writing at firstname.lastname@example.org. A Course Drop Request Form will be electronically sent to you and must be completed and returned to the Registrar‘s Office. Termination becomes effective on such day that the written withdrawal is post marked or the FAX is received. If you fail to notify the College of your desire to drop a course(s) and complete the form, you will be responsible for full tuition and all applicable fees.
The following policy applies when dropping a course(s):
- If you drop a course after registration but prior to the commencement of the Term/semester, you will be refunded any tuition and, if applicable, fees paid.
- Once the term starts and you wish to drop your course(s), you must do so within 3 days from the start of the term in order to receive a refund of 100% tuition. You must complete and submit a Course Drop Request Form in order to officially drop a course. The form can be found at www.necb.edu at the link to Student Services.
- After the third day of the term start, you will not be eligible for a refund and 100% of tuition and all applicable fees will be due.
A grade of 'W" will be assigned when written drop requests are received:
- From the 4th day of Week 1 through weeks 2, 3 and 4 for undergraduate classes
- From the 4th day of Week 1 through Wednesday of Week 3 for graduate classes
A grade of "WF" will be assigned when written drop requests are received in Weeks 5 through 8 for undergraduate classes and from the Thursday of Week 3 through Week 5 for graduate classes.

If you checked off "Self Pay" or "Financial Aid" on the Student Financial Enrollment Agreement, then you should have received a 'Registration Confirmation" email that you are registered for your first two terms.
However, going forward, you must register yourself for each term. You will work with your NECB Academic Advisor to guide you with course selection. Below are the instructions on how to register:
- Log into MYNECB using your user id and password (same login you used to fill out the online application).
- Click on "My Academics", then "Online Registration". Select the term/session for which you are registering from the drop-down.
- Scroll down and click "Begin Online Registration" (the blue box towards the end of the page).
- Click the plus sign next to the course you want and then click the Add button. Scroll down to review your selection that appears in the box. Go to the far right on top of the box and click Proceed to Final Step.
- Click Complete/Notify Advisor and then OK. You will get a confirmation of your registration.
All undergraduate students should expect to spend on average 17-20 hours per week in their course.
- 1/3 of your time reading the lectures and participating in the discussion board, 1/3 of your time and completing assignments and 1/3 of your time learning the material and participating in group work (if applicable).
- During the first week of class you must post your introduction no later than Wednesday unless otherwise indicated by your instructor. You must post to the discussion board by Wednesday with your initial post and respond to at least two to three of your classmates throughout the week but no later than Saturday when the discussion board closes. You should be on the discussion board at least three days during the week and assignments are due no later than Sunday.
- The best part about the hours you need to spend in these courses is that you are not limited to a specific class time, you can log on day or night!
- Full-time: 6 or more credits (2 courses per term) = 36 credits/year or 12 courses/year
- Part-time: 3 credits (1 course per term) = 6 credits/year or 6 courses/year
