Due to the intense nature of the academic programs, all applicants, regardless of citizenship, need to provide proof of English proficiency.
Applicants will meet the English proficiency requirement if:
- English is their native language
- They have lived in the United States or another English-speaking country and completed four consecutive academic years
- An English language proficiency test with suitable scores is submitted directly from a testing agency. Minimum test scores vary between programs and departments.
For students who do not meet the required English proficiency levels, the university runs a Global Pathways program. Helping students improve English language skills, academic credits and progression requirements are awarded upon completion of the program.
International applicants also need to submit a Declaration and Certification of Finances (DCF) to prove they have sufficient financial support and can cover tuition and living expenses. Once they are enrolled, international students need to submit an I-20 request form, as well as a copy of their passport or permanent residency card.
Specific entry requirements can be found on the course listing for each major/combined major on the Northeastern website. At a minimum, students are expected to have completed four years of English, two years of history, two years of the same foreign language, three years of science and three years of math.
Other colleges will also require further study, such as applicants to the College of Engineering, who must have taken physics, chemistry and precalculus.
