Completing Your Degree at NACC
With spring semester registration fast approaching, now is the
time to come back to Northeast Alabama Community College and
finish your degree!
If you started on the path to obtaining a college degree but
have not been able to complete it, consider enrolling now. If
you attended Northeast within the past 5 to 10 years, earned 40
hours or more toward an Associates Degree, and have not earned
any college degree since, we would like to talk to you. Access
to getting your degree has never been so available.
“We have had many former students come
back to us saying that they would be up for a job promotion if
only they had that 2-year degree, but they lacked one or more
courses when they dropped out several years ago,” said Dr. Joe
Burke, Vice President/Dean of Instruction at NACC. “Many people
would just like the personal satisfaction of knowing they had a
college degree. We would like to help those who are in
situations like these.”
People drop out of college for many reasons -- burnout,
work/schedule conflicts or, marriage/family responsibilities,
illness, and financial barriers to name a few. If your situation
has changed and you lack a few courses completing your degree,
now may be the time to take that next step. Northeast has
developed many more educational resources over the last several
years to make it more accessible and convenient to finish a
degree. Free tutoring is available full-time in almost every
subject that Northeast offers. The college now offers more than
95 online courses this semester giving flexibility so students
can fit course work into busy schedules. A College and Career
Planning Center is available to help direct you in taking the
right courses for your career path.
will be glad to help students evaluate transcripts and plan
courses in order to complete a program of study,” said Tonie
Niblett, Dean of Student Services. “My recommendation is that
these students get started as soon as possible. We have a lot of
support services and folks that are willing to help. Students
should remember that they are always welcome to come to the
Student Services Office which is housed in the Admissions Office
and ask for our help.”
