Seth Kurn, Executive Vice President at New England Institute of Technology (NEIT), announced that for the 31st consecutive year, the college is offering a tuition freeze to all individuals who enroll by December 31, 2013.
Already having the lowest tuition of any private college in Rhode Island, New England Tech is continuing its tradition of providing high quality hands-on technical education at the most reasonable tuition. Individuals who enroll in any one of the college’s associate or bachelor degree programs and remains continuously enrolled in their chosen program until graduation, will have their tuition frozen for their entire course of study at NEIT. The college offers more than 35 Associate in Science, Bachelor of Science, and Master of Science degree programs at its three Rhode Island campuses. These programs offer a hands-on approach to learning in a myriad of technical and professional fields each coupled with a liberal arts core.
As Kurn stated, “Tuition freeze programs are not new to New England Tech. Students will not only save money, but they can plan the financing of their education more effectively by being exempt from any tuition increase. We strive to help our students’ succeed so assisting them with their financial needs is one way to help them stay on the path to graduation.”

NEIT achieved LEED® certification by incorporating energy use, lighting, water, material use, and a variety of other sustainable strategies into its East Greenwich facility when the college redesigned and remodeled what was once a 265,000-square-foot office building. By using less energy and water, a LEED® certified building saves money for families, businesses and taxpayers; reduces greenhouse gas emissions; and contributes to a healthier environment for residents, workers and the community.
LEED® certification of the East Greenwich campus was based upon a number of green design and construction features. Over 100,000 projects currently participate in the LEED® rating systems, comprising over 8 billion square feet of construction space in all 50 states and 114 countries.
The IT industry is one dominated by men, and it seems the reason may be entirely superficial.
In a 2005 study by the National Center for Women and Information Technology, it was reported that most women thought of “geeks, pocket protectors, and … a lifetime of staring into a screenwriting computer code” when asked about the IT field.
These days the number of women enrolling in IT programs is changing - but is it happening quickly enough? Check out this infographic from Best Computer Science Schools and see for yourself!
Here’s a Special note from Carolyn at WonderofTech via Earnest Parenting: The infographic is incorrect about the world’s first programmable computer. That was actually the Colossus, used at Bletchley Park, England to help break the German Enigma code during World War II. The computer was kept a secret until after the Cold War as it continued being used by the UK to break Soviet Union secret codes.
Carolyn continued: Until the Colossus was revealed in the 1990′s, most of the world believed that IBM created the world’s first programmable computer.
Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute and New England Institute of Technology Signed Two New Articulation Agreements
As it continues to seek access to higher education for qualified students, The Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI) and New England Institute of Technology, Rhode Island, signed two new articulation agreements last month.
The agreements facilitate BTVI’s students’ matriculation from the Information Technology Management Associate’s degree program into New England Tech’s Information Technology Network Engineering and Information Technology Cyber Security Bachelor’s degrees programs. The small, private college has approximately 3,000 students of which 30 are Bahamians.

We asked current New England Tech student Kenny Jaramillo what attracted him to New England Tech. In addition to wanting to prepare himself to “land a great career, not just another job,” Kenny was also attracted to New England Tech by our Tuition Freeze program. If you enroll by December 31, 2013, your tuition at New England Tech will not increase as long as you are continuously enrolled at the college.
