If you are in high school, or have completed high school and have not enrolled in a degree-seeking college or university program, you will apply as a first-year applicant. First-Year students may choose to apply to Northeastern during one of four decision programs: Early Decision I, Early Action, Early Decision II, and Regular Decision. Early Decision programs are binding, while Early Action and Regular Decision are non-binding. The Admissions Committee reviews each application holistically, understanding the context of your unique experience and today’s circumstances. We respect and consider each school’s pedagogy, allowing us to thoughtfully and effectively evaluate students for admissions based on their school’s academic offerings and overall experience.
Joining Northeastern as a transfer student is a good fit for those students who will have completed at least 12 semester hours of college-level coursework (after secondary school) OR have attempted at least one semester of full-time coursework and maintained enrollment through the add/drop period. Northeastern considers transfer applications for entry in the fall. The admissions review process is holistic, and will include consideration for merit awards.
Our admissions process aims to build a diverse community of intellectually motivated and engaged students. Our growing global network offers many exciting opportunities to become a Husky—from full enrollment at one of our undergraduate campuses to exciting first-year experiences. Regardless of how you join our community, you’ll participate in experiential learning opportunities relevant to your unique learning journey. >
