According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, you make an average of 40% more if you have a bachelor’s degree than you would with just an associate degree. Sounds appealing, right?
That’s where New England College (NEC) enters the picture. NEC is starting the second year of its partnership with Dallas College offering onsite bachelor’s degree completion programs. The whole point is to make the transition from your associate degree to your bachelor’s degree easier than ever. And, of course, statistically, it will help you make more money.
It also helps you pursue your bachelor’s degree without leaving Dallas College. NEC’s hybrid programs are designed to fit your busy schedule. Classes usually meet one night per week at a Dallas College campus, with additional assignments completed online. However, our Spring 2021 classes will be entirely online.
NEC faculty teach bachelor-level courses at two Dallas College campuses in two career fields with high demand in the Dallas area:
- Bachelor of Science in Cybersecurity (hosted at Richland Campus)
- Bachelor of Science in Forensic Accounting (hosted at Eastfield Campus)
A Bachelor’s Program Built for You
When you transition to one of these bachelor’s programs, you can transfer all 60 credit hours you have earned for your associate degree. And you can potentially transfer 30 more credit hours through additional coursework or prior learning assessments. Plus, you will receive the reduced tuition rate of $248 per credit hour.
“Being able to get a bachelor’s degree while staying at community college and the affordable tuition fees, no one can get a better deal than this,” said Suman Dahal, a Dallas College graduate and NEC BS Cybersecurity student. “I personally benefited from this great program.”
