Tuition & Financial Aid: Phone calls and emails were not returned which was very very frustrating. If you are persistent you will get the answers you need.

Facilities: The faculty and the staff know your name when you walk into a building its unreal.

Campus Resources: Could use some more activities but there are some and if you seek things out you'll have stuff to do.

2 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The education I recieved here was phenomenal however the financial aid office is extremely disorganized. I was sending my remaining assignments to someone who had stopped working there months prior and they had failed to inform anyone of this or resolve the issue. They also overdrew my account by charging me insurance after I had left campus and failed to inform me until I was $7000 in the hole. To make things worse they td me I could fill out a fafsa to pay for the now outstanding debt, which I did, only to have them tell me a whole month later I had filled out the wrong one, by which time it was too late to fill out the correct one. Now im being hassled by debt collectors for $12, 000. This school is not worth going to for that reason. Their offices are far too disorganized to do any good. I recieved my education but still have no diploma to show for it.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: I am a culinary student and in the beginning you were with the baking and pastry as well but then you split in the second semester. I think this is a good approach because in the introductory classes it helps you realize what you would like more and gives you the opportunity to switch "majors" if you find you are interested in the other. The culinary workload isnt bad at all. Right now i dont have much homework. I have only had one paper due in the past 6 weeks. The first 6 weeks if the semester I had a paper due every week but it was only one page long and it was really the only homework. No matter what degree or major you are doing you have to do an internship and the career services staff is very helpful in helping you find one that will best suit you.

4 College Junior

Academic Experience: There is a lot of hands on learning. The teachers are very involved and the curriculum is excellent. There are classes that could have been online courses such as IT, but you really do learn a lot from them. In your second semester here you are working in the cafeteria and working the line at the school restaurant. They teach you how it is and what it is to work in a restaurant.

3 College Junior

Tuition & Financial Aid: There are different financial aid officers for the AOS and BA degrees. The officer that helps with the certificate and AOS is very helpful and she does her best to help you out and does what ever she can. The officer for the BA degree however is very hard to get in touch with and she will not keep you updated with when you owe money. I personally had a fairly smooth experience but i have heard from others how horrible their experience was.

4 College Junior

Student Body: There are a wide variety of students here. We have students here fresh out of high school to 50 year old career changers. It is a very nice variety. A lot of people I have spoken to have said they did not expect to make friends when coming here but are very glad it happened. There are a lot of volunteer opportunities and most of them are working along side the chefs at NECI

3 College Junior

Student Body: The student body is a little rough around the edges but it comes with the field. They are all hard-working, many are introverts, but all of them are very passionate about food.
