Getting Started

From exploring the best matched universities for your major to finding a specific course you need, learn how to start preparing.

Ensure you are taking courses that will transfer back to Northeastern University and count toward your degree.

You must maintain full-time status at Northeastern University while abroad and full-time status at the host institution. The course load for each study abroad program may vary depending on the program. Please check the credit conversion and full-time status of your host institution.


Academic Advisor

Check what courses will fulfill your degree audit requirements. Discuss how the credit amount you take abroad will impact your progress towards graduation. Different majors/minors have different course policies.
