Application Information

Required Materials

Every avenue to Northeastern is unique. Please take a moment to find the required application documents and deadlines for your path.

You are considered a first-year applicant if:

  • You are still in high school
  • You graduated from high school or earned your GED, but did not enroll in a degree-seeking program at a college or university

If you took college courses in high school, plan to attend a college summer session immediately after you graduate from high school, or are in a dual-enrollment program (receiving your high school diploma and an Associate’s degree at the same time), you would still apply as a first-year.

Northeastern University has a long-standing commitment to the city of Boston, including Boston Public High School students and graduates. If you are a current Boston Public High School student or recent graduate, please view our Northeastern University and the City of Boston pamphlet for more information.

    • You will need to provide an official translation for any transcripts which are not provided in English.
    • If you are applying from a high school with non-traditional grading policies or narrative evaluations instead of traditional grades, you are required to submit your narrative reports in order for your application to be complete.
    • If you have been out of high school for more than one year, you are still required to submit your most recent transcript.
    • If you earned your GED, you must submit an official GED score report, along with your high school transcript through the final year you completed.

    Advanced Credits

    • Freshman are eligible to receive credit from Advanced Placement (AP) or International Baccalaureate (IB) examinations, or from certain international maturity certificate examinations. Learn more here.

  • Northeastern requires all first-year applicants to submit the Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR).

    What is the Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR)?
    An online platform that permits students to self-report their coursework and grades directly to the university without requiring information to instead be sent by their high school/secondary school. Completing the SRAR will take you less than one hour once you have collected copies of your academic records, and the SRAR is free for students to submit.

    How do I submit the SRAR?

    • Once your application is successfully submitted and processed, you will receive access to your Application Status Check.
    • Log in to your Application Status Check.
    • Locate the SRAR section (under the Required Application Checklist Items).
    • Log in to the SRAR.
    • Create an account or link an account that you have already created.
    • Before beginning the SRAR, review Northeastern’s “How to Complete the SRAR” guide or instructional video.
    • Complete the SRAR by adding your high school, coursework, and if applicable, any external exam information.
    • Upload any supporting documentation.

    If you have questions about entering coursework or grades in the SRAR, or completing and submitting the SRAR, you should contact SRAR directly, either using the support widget in your SRAR account or visiting the SRAR Support Center.

    • You are a non-native English speaker, and immediately before enrolling at Northeastern, you will complete 4 consecutive, full-time academic years in high schools and universities where native English was the primary instructional language for all courses except foreign language acquisition courses. All waiver requests must be submitted through your Application Status Check. For additional information and to determine whether you are eligible for a waiver, please see the International Students page for more information on waiving the English proficiency requirement.

    Please note: Northeastern’s Admissions Committee reserves the right to request proof of English language proficiency from any applicant, regardless of citizenship or first language, at any time during the evaluation process.

    • If you are applying to the College of Arts, Media and Design, you can submit a portfolio under your Application Status Check after applying to Northeastern. Applicants are encouraged to complete all forms, including Academic Profile, Media Uploads, and Personal Statement (500-word limit). Please only submit one portfolio. Additional submissions will not be reviewed. Click here for more information and deadlines.

    • If you are an international student, you must submit the Declaration and Certification of Finances (DCF). Please read the International Applicants page for more information.

You should review the information found below if:

  • You are a non-U.S. Citizen applying to Northeastern from a high school or university in any country around the world, even the U.S.
  • You are a U.S. Citizen applying from a high school or university outside of the U.S.

You will find application information under Applying, enrollment information under Admitted Students, and additional details about services available for students, under Support.

International application requirements

  • When reviewing your application, Northeastern’s Admissions Committee will initially focus on your academic records, which include your high school transcript; final or predicted results from any national, regional, or international examinations; any university transcripts; and for first-year applicants who will graduate from a high school which is located outside of the United States, the Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR). Provided below are additional details on the academic records which Northeastern requires from all first-year and transfer applicants.

    High School Transcripts

    Before you enroll at Northeastern, you will be expected to complete a pre-university education program, earning a graduation certificate or diploma which will enable you to apply to a bachelor’s degree-seeking program at a university in your home country. Examples include your High School Diploma, International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, General Certificate of Education (GCE) Advanced Levels (A-Levels), Attestat o Srednem Obshchem Obrazovanii, Baccalauréat, Bachillerato, General Secondary Education Certificate, Indian Standard XII Higher Secondary School Certificate, or West African Senior School Certificate.

    • All high school transcripts must be sent directly to Northeastern by your high school by the application deadline. Any transcripts sent by you, your family or an independent educational consultant will not be accepted.
    • First-year applicants must provide a transcript which includes final grades from grades 9, 10, and 11 (or the international equivalents). Additionally:
      • If 9th Grade in your education system is considered middle school, please exclude 9th Grade.
      • If you apply for Regular Decision, or if you are deferred to Regular Decision from an earlier round, your high school should send the Mid-Year Report with an updated high school transcript.
      • If you’ve graduated from high school or will graduate before admissions decisions are released, your high school should send your final high school transcript (with date of graduation).
    • Transfer applicants must provide a final high school transcript (with date of graduation) which can be sent directly from your high school to Northeastern.
    • If your education system does not issue transcripts, your high school must provide the academic records which detail the courses you’ve taken throughout high school, and the grades which you’ve received. Examples include internal grade reports, term or semester reports, mark sheets, or promotional or provisional examination results.

    University Transcripts

    If you are applying as a transfer student from an international university and wish to have courses evaluated for transfer credit after admittance, you will need to provide a certified transcript evaluation completed by a recognized credentialing agency, such as the Center for Educational Documentation (CED), SpanTranWorld Education Services (WES), or another recognized credentialing agency and the credentialed evaluation must include the following:

    • An indication that the institution is accredited in US terms
    • A course-by-course credit and grade conversion

    National Exams

    If progression or promotion in your country or education system requires you to complete any externally assessed examinations, please read the following section, as Northeastern will require you to submit your final results (or predicted grades, if your final results are not available until after admissions decisions are released).

    • If promotion into your pre-university education requires externally assessed exams, your high school must send a copy of your final results certificate to Northeastern. Examples include your GCSE/IGCSE/GCE O-Level exam results, Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate (CSEC) exam results, Malaysian SPM exam results, or Indian Standard X board exam results.
    • If you are applying from an education system that culminates in any externally assessed national, regional, or international high school graduation exams which are required for admission into a bachelor’s degree-seeking university program in your home country, Northeastern highly recommends sending final results or predicted grades along with your application. Examples include results from any IB exams, GCE A-Level exams, Cambridge Pre-U exams, Baccalauréat exams, Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Exams, Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) exams, Malaysian SPM exams, West African Senior School Certificate Exams, or Indian Standard XII board exams.
      • For students who will graduate before admissions decisions are released: final results must be submitted by the exam board, or as a certified copy by your high school.
      • If you will not receive your final results until after admissions decisions are released: predicted grades should instead be submitted by your high school should.
      • Furthermore, all enrolling students will be required to submit final exam results, even students who applied “test-optional” to Northeastern, as final exams also serve as proof of high school graduation.
      • If you are applying from a high school in the United States, submitting predicted grades is not required but entirely optional. Instead, you are encouraged to submit your first semester or first trimester grades once they become available, and your mid-year grades if you applied for Regular Decision or were deferred to Regular Decision from an earlier round.

    Predicted results should be submitted with the High School Transcript, Secondary School Report, or Counselor Recommendation; or submitted by a designated school official from a verifiable school email address, using either Northeastern’s Predicted Grades Request Form or your high school’s own predicted grades statement. If your final test scores are not within an acceptable range of your predicted results, Northeastern reserves the right to rescind any offers of admission.

    Application Requirements for Common International Education Systems

    While Northeastern’s application requirements are largely identical for all first-year applicants and all transfer applicants – the application with Northeastern-specific questions, your academic records, secondary school report or college report, recommendation letters, standardized testing (optional), and English proficiency – the documents which ultimately satisfy those requirements, specifically for the academic records, will sometimes vary by education system. Below are the application requirements for common international education systems. If you do not see your education system listed below, contact admissions@northeastern.edu.

  • Optional Standardized Testing: For the 2022-2023 academic year, Northeastern University is test-optional and does not require applicants to submit standardized testing to be considered for admission.

    • All complete applications will be fully considered for admission to Northeastern, invitation to the University Honors Program, and any merit scholarships.
    • If you choose to apply without standardized testing, you will not be penalized or disadvantaged.
    • If you choose to submit standardized testing, you may submit the SAT(CEEB Code 3667), ACT (College Code 1880), or both.
    • Northeastern super-scores and will only consider your best score between the two types of tests.
    • All applicants from U.S. and international high schools will be able to choose to submit standardized testing (SAT or ACT) or not.
      Non-native English-speaking applicants must continue to submit official results from an approved English Language Test or request a waiver through the Application Status Check. For additional information, please read the English Language Proficiency section below.
  • Northeastern students will be exposed to not only a rigorous academic environment but also a fast-paced experiential one. In order to be successful in both, all first-year and transfer applicants, regardless of citizenship, must demonstrate proficiency in English to be considered for admission to Northeastern.

    Requirement

    Once your application is submitted, received, and processed, you will be able to access your Application Status Check. If you are required to provide further information regarding your proficiency in English, you will be able to complete the requirement in several ways, depending on your familiarity with English, and the frequency with which you use English each and every day:

    • Most non-native English-speaking applicants will be required to submit official results from a valid English Language Test. Northeastern will accept the following:
    • However, based on your academic environment and the primary instructional language in either your high school or university, you may be eligible for a waiver. All waivers must be submitted through your Application Status Check. For additional information and to determine whether you are eligible for a waiver, please read the section below on waiving the English proficiency requirement.

    Please note: Northeastern’s Admissions Committee reserves the right to request proof of English language proficiency from any applicant, regardless of citizenship or first language, at any time during the evaluation process.

    English Language Testing

    Northeastern will consider your official results (sent directly from the testing agency or exam board to Northeastern) from any valid test (i.e. no more than 2 years old from the test date) for one of the approved English Language Tests indicated on this page.

    Northeastern does not have minimum score requirements. Instead, we publish the middle 50% range for enrolling students, which means 25% of the enrolling students received a higher score, and 25% of the enrolling students received a lower score.

    Please note: the scores provided are not cut-off scores, but for estimating purposes, and in no way represent a promise or guarantee of admission.

    • 190 to 202 on either C1 Advanced (CAE) or C2 Proficiency (CPE)
    • 130 to 145 on the Duolingo English Test (DET)
    • 7.0 to 8.0 on the IELTS Academic
    • 68 to 81 on the PTE Academic
    • 99 to 112 on TOEFL Internet-Based Test (Northeastern will accept either the in-person iBT completed in a test center, or the online iBT Home Edition. Northeastern’s TOEFL Code is 3667.)
    • Northeastern does not accept results from the following tests: IELTS Indicator, PTE Academic Online, TOEFL Essentials, TOEFL iBT Paper Test, or TOEFL ITP.
    Additional Information
    • Results should be submitted to Northeastern by the application deadline. If you plan to take an English Language Test for a first or additional time, once the application is submitted or the application deadline has passed, please indicate planned future test dates on your application. Results will still be accepted after the deadline, but we cannot guarantee we will be able to wait for your results before making an admissions decision. Northeastern will focus on your most recent English Language Test results, and does not superscore results or consider MyBest scores from applicants who choose to submit the TOEFL iBT.
    • If your English Language Testing indicates a need for additional study and support, but you otherwise meet the academic requirements for the degree-seeking program to which you applied, you may be considered for admission through NU Immerse, a one-year transitional acculturation and English language support program.

    Waiving Your English Proficiency Requirement

    Northeastern will waive the English proficiency requirement for applicants who meet the following criteria:
    • You submit a waiver request through your Application Status Check portal. (Your waiver request will typically be reviewed within 3-5 business days, once your application is otherwise complete.)
    • Immediately before enrolling at Northeastern, you will complete 4 consecutive, full-time academic years at institutions where native English was the primary instructional language for all courses except foreign language acquisition courses.
    • Students are also strongly encouraged to provide either predicted or final results, which meet the minimum score requirements, for any of the exams listed below:
      • 4 or 5 on AP English Language & Composition
      • 4 or 5 on AP English Literature & Composition
      • 5 or higher on IB English A: Language & Literature (HL or SL)
      • 5 or higher on IB English A: Literature (HL or SL)

      • B or higher in a university course (completed on a university campus, with other university students, and taught by university faculty) which is considered as an equivalent to Northeastern’s First Year Writing (ENGW 1111). Review the Transfer Equivalency Database to learn whether your course is considered as an equivalent course.

    Please note: If you were enrolled in courses which were designed for English Language Learners (such as any ESL courses) for more than one academic year (during the 4 years being reviewed for your waiver request), you are strongly encouraged to submit either final results from one of the English exams indicated above – AP English, IB English, (I)GCSE English or A-Level/AS-Level English – or official results from an approved English Language Test.

    Interviews

    Northeastern does not offer alumni or on-campus interviews, but we will consider and evaluate third-party, unscripted video interviews submitted through InitialView and Vericant, which will allow you to personally discuss your academic and personal background. Neither will replace English language testing however, when testing is required.

    While there is no deadline for submitting any virtual third-party interview, you must submit your InitialView or Vericant interview by the following dates, if you would like either interview evaluated by the Admissions Committee:

    • Early Decision I: November 15

  • All international students applying to Northeastern are required to complete and submit the Declaration and Certification of Finances (DCF), which is designed to assist the Admissions Committee in obtaining complete and accurate information about each applicant’s anticipated financial support. Each applicant must verify your ability to fully finance your Northeastern education, including tuition and fees, room and board, and personal living expenses. Information is necessary as the financial support for international students at Northeastern is limited:

    • International students are not eligible for financial aid at Northeastern which includes both institutional need-based grants and federal student financial aid. Additional information for international students is available here.
    • International students are eligible for merit scholarships which range from $10,000 to $28,000 per year. No additional application is necessary, as your application for admission serves as your scholarship application. Merit scholarships are extremely competitive, however, and do not cover the full cost of attendance.

    Once your application is submitted, and processed by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, you will be given access to your Application Status Check. You can access the DCF through your Application Status Check. Instructions are provided here.

  • Northeastern requires all first-year applicants to submit the Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR).

    What is the Self-Reported Academic Record (SRAR)?
