UMass Lowell expanding to downtown Haverhill

Satellite campus expected to open in fall

(Continued)

At NECC, 61 percent of students continue their education after earning their associate degree and the great majority do so at UMass Lowell, Glenn said. NECC also works closely with the university to make the transfer process “as seamless as possible,” Glenn said.

The details on what programs will be offered at the Haverhill campus are still being worked out. Options may include courses in health management, undergraduate and graduate management, entrepreneurship and nursing.

In the future, Meehan said there are possibilities UMass Lowell will open satellite campuses in other Merrimack Valley communities, including Lawrence where NECC is now building a multimillion-dollar allied health and sciences facility.

“In terms of caution, we want to make sure this model works,” Meehan said, referring to the Haverhill campus.
