Eastern Nazarene College Receives Accreditation Approval for New Online Degree Programs 

May 13, 2024

QUINCY – The New England Commission of Higher Education (NECHE) notified Eastern Nazarene College (ENC) on April 20 that three new, fully online programs have received accreditation, bringing the College’s online degree offerings to seven.  

The newly accredited programs will begin July 8, 2024, and are approved for full online delivery. In addition to full accreditation, all online program offerings have recently lowered tuition, furthering the College’s commitment to removing the barriers to affordable, high-quality, faith-based education. ENC Online undergraduate program offerings are $390 per credit hour and graduate programs are $550. 

These degrees are fully online and are conducted asynchronously. Beginning July 8, the College will offer an Associate of Arts degree in General Studies, a Bachelor of Arts in Management, and a Master of Science in Management – Information Technology. These three programs join ENC’s existing four online degree programs.  

Director of Online Enrollment Jennifer Adkins says she “could not be more thrilled about the NECHE approval of our new fully online degree offerings. The Associate of Arts in General Studies, the Bachelor of Arts in Management, and the Master of Science in Management Information Technology programs open up incredible opportunities for students near and far.”  

The demand for online and distance education programs has risen in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. Enrolled students and potential learners quickly realized the value of flexible education opportunities when colleges and universities began offering online courses. “These programs allow working adults, parents, and others who may have faced barriers to access high-quality, Christ-centered education from an accredited institution. Our online formats provide the flexibility they need to balance work, family, and other commitments,” says Adkins.  

Applications are open for all programs and cohorts.

Adkins says, “I’m so proud that ENC is meeting students where they are and removing obstacles through these new online pathways. We are committed to making life-transforming education accessible for everyone.”
