Can I apply to start in 2021?
Absolutely. You can submit your application to Northeastern University and they are making offers of admission for Spring, Summer and Fall 2021 starts.
Campus visits have been cancelled. Are there virtual alternatives?
Yes, you can sign up for a virtual campus visit.
Is campus open for the Fall 2020 and Spring 2021 semesters?
Yes, Northeastern University re-opened its campus on August 17, 2020.
Do I need to quarantine on arrival?
Yes. All travelers to Massachusetts are required to complete a mandatory Massachusetts Travel Form and, upon arrival, either provide a negative PCR test issued within 3 days of departure or quarantine for a period of 14 days. Travelers who opt to quarantine may break quarantine should they receive a negative PCR test while in Massachusetts. During time in self-quarantine, you can start taking your scheduled classes at the university via Hybrid NUFlex.
Additionally, Northeastern University requires that community members receive 3 negative tests in order to partake in in-person activities on campus. Note that the first negative test result from Northeastern testing can be used to test you out of the state of Massachusetts’ mandated quarantine.
For more information on testing and quarantine requirements, you can read Northeastern’s guide for international students traveling from abroad.
How will classes be delivered in the Spring 2021 semester?
Northeastern are offering NUflex: a combination of in-person learning that allows healthy distancing, combined with remote instruction. Students may opt to take all classes online, begin the semester remotely then come to campus, or come to campus for the start of the semester and take a combination of in-person and online classes.
You can find more information in Northeastern’s student learning resources.
