Search for Courses

Research courses that you are interested in taking abroad, including multiple back-up courses, and confirm that they have been evaluated for Northeastern equivalents.

  • Courses listed are not guaranteed to be offered during your desired term abroad. Please confer with the course catalogue from your host institution to see which courses are being offered during a specific semester.
  • If a course is listed as “No Transfer,” this means that the course has already been reviewed by a Northeastern faculty evaluator and they have determined that the course will not transfer back to Northeastern for credit.
  • If a course is not listed in the database, this means that it has not been evaluated yet and must be submitted to GEO for evaluation.

Students may not take Engineering courses that fall below 2.67 Northeastern credits. Students and Academic Advisors should keep this in mind when reviewing credit values abroad. This is enforced by the College of Engineering and is not negotiable.

Courses that cannot be taken abroad are:

  • PSYC 2320
  • a Psychology lab
  • a Psychology seminar

These courses could count as electives, but this will not fulfill the requirement of completing a lab or a seminar here at Northeastern.
