Dear NECI Community,

The Board of Directors and I have concluded that it is in the best interests of our students, alumni, prospective students, faculty and staff, to discontinue all credit bearing programs.  Therefore, effective immediately we will commence a teach‑out of all credit bearing programs.

Our top priority is to ensure that all our current students have a clear path to complete the programs they are currently enrolled in. We want to assure that our teach‑out process will allow all students a reasonable opportunity to complete their programs of study if they stay on schedule and progress normally to graduate with desired degrees.

Although no specific closing date has been set, all our current students should be able to graduate at the end of Spring 2021 semester.

Unfortunately, the pandemic proved to be the burden that we could not overcome.  As directed by the State of Vermont we closed all our retail operations in March 2020, which severely limited our ability to continue to deliver a college level, hands on culinary education, on an economically viable basis.

Our decision to teach out credit bearing programs comes only after a tireless pursuit of multiple options to continue our mission of providing college education.

I personally want to thank to our faculty and staff who have dedicated themselves over last 40 years with great care and compassion while making sacrifices to enable students in their dreams of a culinary college education. Their hard work has resulted in thousands of remarkable graduates who make our world a better and tastier place.

Once we complete the teach out The North Coast College in Cleveland Ohio will be the Institution of Record for New England Culinary Institute. Until then for all academic and students related issues please contact our VP Earle Test at [email protected] for all other issues please feel free to reach out to me at [email protected].
