College Options for NEIEP Graduates

Especially in today's economy, a college degree is key to success. There are many reasons NEIEP graduates choose to continue their education beyond the apprenticeship program. Maybe you've always wanted a college degree, but thought you'd never have the time or the opportunity. Maybe you started college years ago, and never finished. Maybe you’re a NEIEP instructor who wants to sharpen your skills as an educator. Maybe you’d like to advance in your career, and are looking for something to give you an edge over your competition.

NEIEP has joined in partnership with several colleges and universities to provide college credit for the work you completed as a student in the NEIEP Apprenticeship Training program. By taking advantage of these, you can receive college credit for your classroom-based course work as well as your On-The-Job learning hours.

So which of our college options is right for you?

We recommend you take some time to review all of them, and determine which is the best fit for your unique situation.

When you’re ready to send an official NEIEP transcript to the college of your choice, visit https://www.neiep.org/P/RequestForRecords.aspx for instructions.
