We are accepting applications for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020! Northeastern has removed the ACT or SAT score as an admission requirement for Fall 2020 applications. Fall 2020 admitted students can find additional resources online.

Graduate Student-at-Large Requirements

Graduate Student-at-Large

Graduate students-at-large (SAL) have already earned a baccalaureate degree or higher from a regionally accredited college or university, and wish to take graduate-level courses, but do not want to apply to a master’s degree program at the time of applying for admission. A graduate SAL may choose to take courses for professional or scholarly reasons or personal enrichment. Graduate SALs do not qualify for financial aid.

Summer School ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS

Eligible students who submit all the required materials will be admitted as graduate students-at-large.

College Transcript

Official transcripts are required from college or university where bachelor's degree or higher was earned. Official transcripts and examination scores must be sent electronically or mailed in sealed envelopes from the sending college or institution. Opened transcripts are not considered official. Courses taken at colleges or universities outside of the United States must be evaluated by Educational Credentials Evaluators, Inc. (ECE) or World Education Services, Inc. (WES). The subject analysis or course-by-course evaluation is required.

Application fee

The $30 application fee is payable by mail (check or money order), online (debit or credit card) or in person (cash, check, money order, debit or credit card).

Permanent Residents

If you are a Permanent Resident of the United States, provide a clear copy of your Permanent Resident card. If you have been granted temporary residence, conditional entrance, or if you are a parolee, refugee, asylee, or in the process of becoming a Permanent Resident, you must submit appropriate U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services documentation. If you are in the U.S. on a valid (not expired) visa, submit a clear copy of your visa.
