Learn about admissions and academics
Northeastern’s rigorous academic programs, cutting-edge research centers, and innovative faculty provide students with an unmatched undergraduate and graduate-level educational experience.
Since its founding in 1898, Northeastern has emphasized real-world understanding as a key component of the academic enterprise. We integrate innovative academics with our signature cooperative education program and other experiential learning opportunities—research, study abroad, and service—in the United States and 84 countries around the world.
This multidimensional learning environment makes a Northeastern education like no other. The integration of course work and experience develops students’ critical thinking and creative problem-solving skills while introducing them to new perspectives in their fields. As a result, our graduates are better prepared for the lives they choose.
The university offers ample financial aid to students seeking the benefits of a Northeastern education, through a combination of need-based aid and merit scholarships for undergraduates; and assistantships and stipends for students in academic and professional graduate programs.
The Office of Student Orientation and Parent/Family Programs assists families in making connections with the university and its resources.
