Northeast Consortium of Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts (NECCUM)

Cambridge College is a proud member of Northeast Consortium of Colleges and Universities in Massachusetts [NECCUM], a well-established consortium of 11 colleges and universities (private and public, two-year and four-year) linked by geographic proximity, and a commitment to enhance the experience of our collective students, faculty and staff through cooperative programs. Students at member institutions have the opportunity to take courses at and use the libraries of any of the NECCUM member institutions.


Non-Cambridge College Students

Do you need a course that Cambridge College offers? If your college is part of the NECCUM Partnership, you may be able to take it here.

We offer courses in three Massachusetts locations: Boston, Lawrence and Springfield. By combining superior education with expert faculty and a multicultural, multi-generational student body, our campus offers a unique, flexible schedule for the working adult! Class schedules vary among locations — with evening, weekend intensives, hybrid and online sessions offered every term. 

Contact our Admissions Team at admissions@cambridgecollege.edu to learn more.
